WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE MKT: RWC) announced today that RELM's KNG Series Trunked Radios have successfully completed Cassidian Communications' Interoperability Program (IOP).
The Cassidian Communications Interoperability Program (IOP) is an extensive testing program that simulates scenarios and conditions encountered in both mobile situations and in the field – ensuring that first responders have powerful, flexible and reliable communications tools they can count on. IOP tests the ability of third-party P25 components to work with the Cassidian Communications CORP25 digital trunked radio system. Successful completion of the IOP is significant in that it affords public safety agencies the freedom to select RELM KNG Series Trunked radio products with confidence – knowing that testing has confirmed that the RELM components will successfully interoperate with the CORP25 system in all normal and abnormal conditions. IOP, which takes place in the Cassidian Communications R&D Centre in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada, is a key step in building multi-vendor ecosystems and best-in-class communications networks.
"RELM Wireless is pleased to achieve this level of interoperability with Cassidian Communications. This extensive testing supplements RELM's P25 Compliance Assessment Program testing and further confirms the reliability and value of our KNG series radios," stated RELM President and CEO David Storey. "Our KNG Series trunking radios are currently providing outstanding value for first responders operating P25 trunking systems from Cassidian Communications and other network providers. We welcome this opportunity to document the performance, reliability, and interoperability of RELM radio products with Cassidian Communications."
