Twisted Pair Solutions, a pioneer in unified communications software built to open standards, today announced that its WAVE technology is now available as an integral capability with the innovative Radio Interface Unit (RIU) solution from C4i, Inc.
The combination of C4i’s powerful, yet compact radio gateway and WAVE communications proven software technology results in a uniquely capable solution that is ideally suited to defense and public safety deployments where size, weight and energy considerations are important, such as in mobile communications vehicles and emergency fly-away kits. Together the companies will help organizations across the globe better prepare for rapid, lightweight mobile response.
“We developed the RIU as a highly compact and flexible solution to tactical radio integration with an IP network,” explains Brad Kay, President of C4i. “Adding WAVE media and management services to the RIU is a major differentiating capability, as it allows the RIU to become a rich interoperability solution without the customer having to deploy additional hardware.”
WAVE outperforms hardware-based unified communications products by allowing a multitude of traditionally disparate communications systems such as radios, analog and new IP phone systems, PCs, PDAs and proprietary devices to all interoperate seamlessly without the burden of additional, typically proprietary and costly hardware. The RIU is a small, rugged radio gateway designed for harsh environments that enables connection of up to four radios to an IP network. By embedding WAVE and its open standard protocol support, the RIU delivers a versatile and powerful method for quickly connecting multiple communications systems together in a single management framework.
Selected by government agencies, public safety organizations and large commercial organizations worldwide, WAVE leverages standard IP networks as the unifying medium for seamlessly connecting disparate and even incompatible communications systems, regardless of device, network or application. WAVE’s unique software-based approach to interoperability provides development partners such as C4i with the ability to easily integrate WAVE into their solutions and allows customer organizations to leverage existing hardware resources, significantly boosting deployment ROI.
“C4i is a global leader in developing communications solutions for military and government customers and their RIU is a perfect fit for WAVE,” said Tom Guthrie, President and CEO at Twisted Pair Solutions. “We’re delighted to partner with the company to help government and public safety organizations better reap the benefits of our proven approach in mobile deployments.”
