|TESSCO Offers Breakthrough Solution to Combat Copper Theft|
HUNT VALLEY, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 30, 2012-- TESSCO Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ:TESS), a leading provider of the product and value chain solutions required to build, use and maintain wireless systems, today announced the availability of a groundbreaking device that will change the way wireless service providers combat copper theft at their sites. The Ventev® GTRM is an intelligent alert signaling device that immediately sends out notifications to multiple contacts when a site grounding system has been compromised, either because of copper theft or ground wire deterioration due to the environment.
"The GTRM is a sophisticated, yet easy-to-install device that monitors the integrity of a site grounding system," said Ventev Innovations Vice President
The GTRM is a highly versatile solution that can be configured to meet multiple site needs. The GTRM mounts inside a communications cabinet and taps up to five distinct monitoring points in the grounding system. When the continuity of the ground circuit is interrupted by theft, an alarm is sent to the network operations center, and a text message and email alert are instantly sent to the network manager.
"Deploying the GTRM is fast and cost effective," Lime added. "The payback can be as fast as one incident. By enabling network managers with an accurate picture of the alarm source, they can act quickly enough to prevent equipment damage or a complete site outage with an appropriate field dispatch response."
