Irving, Texas-based EF Johnson Technologies announced today that it has received a $900,000 order from the City of Marietta, Ga. The order calls for the company to provide its Project 25 compliant radios and accessories.
Michael E. Jalbert, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "Earlier in the year we announced that we were strengthening our marketing efforts to new federal, state and local government customers. This is the latest demonstration of our implementation of that strategy. The City of Marietta is a vibrant and growing part of metropolitan Atlanta and we are proud to provide them with interoperable communications solutions."
Rich Tieslau, IT Director for the City of Marietta, said, "These Project 25 compliant radios will provide us with two-way radio interoperability with the Georgia State Patrol, Cobb County Fire, Police and Sheriff's Departments and other public safety agencies in neighboring cities and counties, plus a couple of local university police departments. The new EFJohnson radios are equipped with Over the Air Rekeying (OTAR) and AES encryption which are features we did not have in our analog 800 MHz radios."
The City went through an extensive Request for Proposal process that began in October 2007 with the City's 800 MHz P25 Radio Selection Committee recommending the purchase of EFJohnson products in May. The City worked closely with local EFJohnson dealer Radio One, Inc. of Norcross, Georgia to secure the sale and will work with them on the equipment installation.
