Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Impact Power Technologies Awarded Boston PD Radio Battery Replacement Contract

February 01, 2016  | 

Today, the Boston Police force numbers in the thousands and encompasses six districts. Throughout its history, the Boston PD has pioneered innovative strategies and partnerships in order to protect its communities, and has served as a role model for police departments nationwide.

In keeping with its illustrious past, the Boston PD recently forged yet another groundbreaking direction. BPD commanding officers began testing replacement batteries in search of one that was compatible with their Motorola XTS 2500 radios, would last longer, yet cost less than the OEM. Among those tested, one stood out beyond all others—the IPT-9858 LiP 36, one of the Lithium Polymer batteries in IPT's Lifesaver Series line.

However, as with all government agencies, procedure mandates that a Request for Quote (RFQ) be issued and the bidding process be adhered to. Thus, six vendors were invited to bid, including IPT. In addition to having a run time exceeding 30 hours, 900 guaranteed recharges with no memory effect and backed by a 2-year lifespan, each of which were at least triple the OEM battery's capacity, IPT also beat all competitive pricing. Needless to say IPT got the order—600 batteries to start.

"We've always believed that customer testing was the best way to prove the longevity and quality of our batteries," said Ken Murphy, COO of IPT. "We applaud the Boston PD for taking the initiative to test our product, and for having the foresight to replace the standard OEM radio battery with one that delivers the power they need."

For decades, the Boston PD has been a leader in the evolution of law enforcement, often paving the way for other agencies to follow.

Murphy said, "Of all our customer wins to date, the Boston PD will always hold a special place in our company history, not because they are the largest in the state, but because Massachusetts is our home too."
