WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE Amex: RWC) today announced the achievement of a new product development milestone for the Company; introducing the first trunked versions of its expanding KNG-line of digital P-25 radio models. Trunked units are immediately available in the VHF, UHF and 700-800 MHz frequencies. These products expand RELM's addressable market and enable it to compete for a wide range of new opportunities.
RELM President and CEO David Storey commented, "P25 trunking has been one of our prime strategic objectives for a number of years. We are delighted to introduce a broad offering of trunked portable and mobile radios in our initial launch. Trunking is a very important component of our strategic business plans. It positions RELM for growth by enabling us to compete in a large segment of the land mobile radio market that was previously beyond our capabilities. With trunking now available, our state-of-the-art KNG line gives RELM the most formidable and competitive product offerings in its history. We are looking forward to capitalizing on these advantages in the months ahead."
About APCO Project 25 (P25)
APCO Project 25 (P25), which requires interoperability among compliant equipment regardless of the manufacturer, was established by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials and is approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The shift toward interoperability gained momentum as a result of significant communications failures during events such as the Oklahoma City bombings, the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina. RELM was one of the first manufacturers to develop P25-compliant technology.
