ANNAPOLIS, Md., Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in secure and highly reliable wireless communication technology, today launched its Lynx™ portfolio of portable routers designed to provide highly secure and rugged wireless broadband network solutions for mission-critical communications applications, such as public safety, law enforcement, the special operations community, and, more broadly, the Department of Defense. The Lynx portfolio, which includes the Lynx™ Rugged Vehicle Router and Lynx™ Wearable Router, extends the communications range for mobile vehicles and field agents, and delivers high-throughput performance for in-vehicle mobile applications such as connected in-vehicle video surveillance, intelligent Vehicle Area Network (VAN) capabilities, location services, and other applications. These Lynx Routers have completed LTE trials with an international police force and the Vehicle Router is currently under evaluation by domestic public safety officials for a large scale deployment.
TCS Government Solutions Group President Michael Bristol said: “Public safety organizations, federal agencies, and military echelons are frequently challenged with connectivity issues as an increasing number of technology-driven activities – from in-vehicle or on-person video and dispatch to electronic ticketing – are being generated in the field. Secure, resilient, high-performance wireless connectivity in and around the vehicle is often vital to mission-critical applications. TCS’ Lynx portfolio of portable routers addresses the connectivity issue by extending the wireless communications range and ensuring seamless and automatic wireless mobility across a number of networks. We believe that as the public sector moves toward connecting their personnel and the Internet of Everything, it will find great advantage in the Lynx portable routers and the ability to deliver ubiquitous connectivity.”
