Lockheed Martin Signs Reseller for LMR Interoperability Products
Thursday, August 02, 2018 | Comments

Lockheed Martin signed WAV4M as its exclusive, domestic reseller for the Universal Communications Platform (UCP) line of solutions to address a potential $14 billion critical communications market.

Lockheed Martin’s UCP helps first responders meet the demanding and changing emergency environments by providing interoperability between nearly any communications device, such as two-way radio systems, cellphones, landline telephones, commercial VoIP phones and smartphones.

“There’s been an ongoing industry debate between traditional LMR versus mission-critical push to talk (MCPTT), but we see a very real need to bridge both technologies,” said Christian Barker, CEO of WAV4M. “Lockheed Martin’s software-based UCP, combined with our Project 25 (P25)-over-cellular solution, will be the only one of its kind in this industry that will serve as this bridge. Furthermore, Lockheed Martin’s technologies such as advanced video compression, software-defined deployable networks, and encryption technology bring the future vision of IT-based communications solutions to the market today.”

The UCP is vendor and equipment agnostic and can be used with any existing radios and systems. This allows monitoring, control and dispatch from any location with a network connection and a smartphone, laptop, PC or PDA — no matter the radio vendor, frequency or band.

“When first responders react to emergencies, the ability to seamlessly connect state, local and federal organizations, regardless of device, is paramount to public safety,” said Doug Booth, director of business development, Lockheed Martin Cyber Solutions. “By delivering the UCP capability, we can provide the public sector an efficient and affordable solution to help first responders do their jobs more effectively.”
