Laird to Attend APCO International 79th Annual Conference & Expo

Company to Showcase Two New Public Safety Solutions

Laird, a global technology company, announced it will attend the APCO International 79th Annual Conference Expo. The event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, August 18-21, 2013. Laird will exhibit solutions for the Public Safety industry at booth #1529.

Laird will display a variety of public safety solutions at the event, including two recently released products, the elastomer spring for whip antennas and a UHF Wideband Whip Antenna. The elastomer spring provides increased flexibility and better shape retention due to its EPDM rubber body. It also reduces electronic and road noise when compared to stainless steel springs. The UHF Wideband Antenna is a high-performance coil whip antenna that eases interoperability issues while still maintaining antenna performance. It features 3 dBi of gain and covers the full UHF band from 380 - 520 MHz.

“Laird is an industry leader in providing mobile radio antenna solutions for police, fire, EMS and other first responders,” said Rob Antonio, product manager for Laird. “Our solutions are reliable and ensure maximum performance for situations where it matters most. The APCO event provides an excellent opportunity to showcase these new products and our capabilities for the public safety industry as a whole.”

With world-class engineering and RF expertise, Laird continues to develop technologies and capabilities that make a wirelessly connected world possible. An industry leader in the design and manufacture of antennas for mobile devices and wireless data, Laird possesses end-to-end system knowledge and employs advanced, proprietary design tools to bring novel antenna designs to market. Antenna product offerings consists of Industrial Wireless, Telecom, Public Safety and Enterprise and Small Office antennas. These antennas are ideal for use in the automotive, telematics, asset tracking, consumer electronics, handset and mobile devices industries.
