Radio IP Software Recognized for Excellence in Delivering Advanced IP Data Capabilities to the Global TETRA Network Community
Leading Mobile VPN receives 2008 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award for improving performance of TETRA wireless networks
Montreal, QC, September 16, 2008 – Radio IP Software, Inc., leader in mission-critical Mobile VPN solutions and member of the TETRA MoU Association, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as the recipient of the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award for its Radio IP MTG™ software. The Award recognizes the company’s innovative technology in the field of IP-based communications for the public safety sector. The Award is presented each year to the company who demonstrates excellence in new research that has resulted in innovation that contributes significantly to an industry.
Radio IP MTG improves the transmission of IP data over TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) networks via its patented Optimized TCP/IP protocol technology. Laboratory tests have proven that using Radio IP MTG can improve a TETRA network’s performance up to 154 times faster, depending on the file type. With their newfound ability to utilize data-intense IP applications on their low-bandwidth networks that were traditionally reserved for voice communication, TETRA users are now able to realize the full potential of their infrastructure.
“Radio IP Software provides an ideal solution to the unique communications challenges faced by public safety agencies,” says Arun Nirmal, Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan. “Its Mobile VPN helps them to leverage mission-critical applications such as computer-aided dispatch, biometric and criminal records over their dedicated TETRA network all while facilitating multi-network interoperability with complementary broadband or cellular connections when available. The result is especially crucial during emergency situations since public safety agencies are now able to carry out urgent data communications while on-the-move.”
In the public safety sector, Radio IP MTG enables mobile data users to combine WiFi, WiMAX, satellite and other wireless networks to their existing TETRA infrastructures. As users travel, the software seamlessly switches between networks while maintaining a continuous, reliable and secure connection.
“Radio IP Software is honored to be acknowledged by Frost & Sullivan as an innovative leader in Mobile VPN software solutions,” said Michel Guay, President, Radio IP Software. “At a time when we are accelerating our expansion into EMEA, this recognition underscores our commitment to mission-critical customers thereby providing innovation technology that improves TETRA network performance and communications capabilities.
