General Dynamics Broadband, CalAmp Form Mobile Tech Partnership; Chris Marzilli Comments

cell-towerGeneral Dynamics Broadband and wireless communications technology provider CalAmp are partnering to offer mobile technologies to customers in the public safety, defense and industrial sectors.

The companies will offer customized versions of CalAmp’s multi-carrier broadband routers with GD Broadband’s LTE communications systems to connect users to 4G and LTE networks, CalAmp said Thursday.

“GD Broadband products and technologies can be found in public safety networks worldwide,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems, the parent organization of GD Broadband.

This combined offering is the first product under the partnership between both businesses.

Mike Zachan, general manager of CalAmp’s wireless networks business, said the company aims to give GD Broadband customers a single device platform for connecting with public and private LTE networks.

CalAmp’s Fusion-LTE broadband router is designed wireless data connectivity at 4G speeds in band 13 and 17 LTE networks and its multi-radio version works to use 3G connections when 4G is not available.

GD Broadband will offer band 12 and band 20 variants for privately-licensed networks intended for oil and gas, energy, utilities, public safety, defense and other  industrial applications.
