Twisted Pair Solutions Partners with Raytheon to Securely Integrate Smartphones and Tablets with Mission Critical P25 Two-Way Radios via Next Generation Interoperability Server

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Twisted Pair Solutions Inc., a recognized leader in critical communication applications for secure, real-time collaboration anywhere, on any device, today announced that it has partnered with Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN  ) to help first responders securely communicate on a variety of hand-held devices. Police, fire and emergency rescue workers will be able to communicate with each other on smartphones, tablets and even conventional two-way radios over any secure radio or WiFi network.

Twisted Pair’s patented WAVE software will be integrated with Raytheon’s Next Generation Interoperability Server (NGIS) -- allowing smartphones and tablets to securely connect to existing Land Mobile Radio (LMR) infrastructure and enabling existing infrastructure to expand and securely transmit critical voice and data through the use of 4G/LTE devices. The new WAVE and NGIS integration for P25 augments the existing integration between WAVE and Raytheon’s ACU line of radio interoperability systems.

"Our partnering with Raytheon will deliver new, economical choices for law enforcement communications," said Tom Guthrie, president and CEO of Twisted Pair. “Our Police and Fire customers want to use existing devices and networks so they can be included in conversations that today they can’t be due to the extremely high price of P25 radios. Our joint efforts will provide flexible access to critical communications from commercial devices in an integrated and secure manner and ensure all appropriate users are involved in critical communications.”

Raytheon’s NGIS provides interoperability between LMR radios, landline and VoIP phones, P25 systems via ISSI, and broadband 4G/LTE networks. WAVE is a critical mobile workforce communications solution that enables seamless real-time communications between existing and emerging technologies. WAVE has been widely deployed by the Department of Defense, federal government and law enforcement agencies worldwide.

“By incorporating the WAVE application onto our server, first responders can communicate in real-time on any device, anywhere,” said TJ Kennedy, director of Public Safety and Security for Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems business. “Together we provide a low-cost solution for police departments that are running out of spectrum on their existing infrastructure and need to increase their capabilities.”
