HUNT VALLEY, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 10, 2012-- TESSCO Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ:TESS), a leading provider of the product and value chain solutions required to build, use and maintain wireless systems, and KTS Wireless (KTSW), a leader in the development of wireless technology, have announced that KTSW's FCC-approved Agility White Space Radio (AWR) is now available through TESSCO.
The introduction of the second-generation white space radio, the AWR, prompted the agreement between the two companies whereby TESSCO will serve as the master distributor of KTS radios for North America. The successful FCC certification of the AWR is a wireless innovation milestone that positions KTSW and TESSCO to take advantage of the growing demand for UHF white space technology.
"TESSCO is pleased to be partnering with KTS Wireless to distribute their white space radio," said TESSCO Vice President Bill Moten. "This unlicensed wireless product provides alternative solutions for the organizations that build, maintain, and use wireless networks. More importantly, it extends our commitment of offering the most comprehensive selection of outdoor and indoor wireless broadband radios for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, mesh, or SCADA applications."
"We are very proud to be releasing our second FCC-certified white space radio and excited about our relationship with TESSCO," said Andy Mancone, Director of Sales and Marketing at KTS Wireless. "TESSCO's customer base aligns with our targeted market segments and is best positioned to capitalize on our first-to-market White Space technology."
The AWR is a cost-effective alternative that utilizes the unlicensed white space spectrum for monitoring continuous control systems or gathering time-sensitive data in difficult industrial environments such as water distribution systems, electrical power stations, and offshore oil and gas refineries. This solution can also be used for monitoring public transportation, Public Safety, and remote video surveillance.
The AWR has been certified with the TV White Space platform from Spectrum Bridge.
