FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

CalAmp introduces the Air Traffic Controller, a Flexible, Distributed Communications Front End Processor to Optimize Wireless Network Communications

OXNARD, Calif., (MONTH) (DAY), (YEAR)--CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless solutions for mission critical applications in Utilities and Government, today announced the release of the Air Traffic Controller (ATC), a distributed communications processor that optimizes bandwidth over wireless networks. CalAmp’s ATC is built around Open Connectivity-compliant OPC-UA technology from Kepware Technologies, and enables multiple wireless applications to physically share a single wireless network while maintaining optimal communications performance for each application.

ATC is the embodiment of CalAmp’s Distributed Architecture Solution, which assists utilities in maximizing the efficiency of their industrial communications by moving intelligence to the edge of the backhaul network. Device-specific protocols embedded in the ATC provide highly-optimized remote data collection and processing over wireless networks for SmartGrid applications such as Automated Meter Reading or Demand Response Controls. ATC then manages the backhaul interface with intelligent, highly-secure tunneling algorithms that interleave multiple device data streams into the backhaul pipe. The result is a more efficient wireless network; reduced latency, improved availability, superior reliabiltiy, and an additional layer of industrial-grade security.

The Kepware protocols embedded in the Air Traffic Controller offer an enormous variety of remote device connectivity options. Kepware currently supports a growing list of over 140 protocols, including those for Power Distribution, Industrial Automation, and Infrastructure Monitoring.

“Kepware and CalAmp share a profound commitment to providing individually-tailored solutions to our clients in the industrial utility sector,’ explains explains Rick Nozel, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for CalAmp. “Kepware’s vast knowledge of communications protocols and embedded I/O is a perfect complement to CalAmp’s class-leading portfolio of industrial wireless networking and communications solutions. SmartGrid demands solutions that are integrated, flexible, comprehensive, and secure. Our clients demand solutions that work with, and extend, their legacy systems. CalAmp and Kepware are partnering to provide both.”

The Air Traffic controller will be on display at the DistribuTECH Conference on Wednesday, March 24 in the Distributed Architecture Demo, Room 39, in the Tampa Convention Center.
