EFJohnson Announces Teaming Agreement with Cisco

October 30, 2007  | 

EFJohnson is teaming with Cisco to combine Cisco's IP Interoperability and Collaboration System (IPICS) with EF Johnson's robust portfolio of advanced Land Mobile Radio communications solutions. This will provide state and local governments and first responders with a complete IP interoperability solution as they look for new ways to improve response times to protect citizens.

The joint Cisco and EFJohnson solution will offer customers a fast, flexible, and cost-effective radio migration toward trunked Project 25 (P25) systems and one of the most advanced, interoperable public safety communications solutions available. The solution will also provide highly secure, robust operations for mixed analog and digital wide-area talk groups, as well as seamless roaming, mobility management, spectral efficiency and integrated support for IP telephony, cellular and public safety broadband communications (WiMax, 4.9Ghz, 700Mhz), beyond radio. It will give customers greater choice as they look to solve problems requiring a combination of radio communications and interoperability solutions.

Cisco IPICS has licensed EFJohnson's powerful radio control protocol, which is unique in supporting a breadth of radio system technologies, ranging from the most widely installed, traditional analog technologies, to the newest, most advanced P25 digital standards. This allows a user to efficiently and flexibly interoperate with multiple types of radio systems. Customers can now easily manage a multi-jurisdictional radio system and an IP system with complete interoperability, which has not been possible in the past with legacy systems.

"The relationship will help enable a close integration of Cisco IPICS and EF Johnson's analog and digital radio system solutions," said Michael E. Jalbert, chairman and chief executive officer of EFJ Inc. "This will benefit first responder users of legacy analog radio systems as they interoperate with and migrate to newer technologies, including Project 25 digital radio systems."
