NextGen RF has announced they have signed an agreement to acquire three products from CalAmp including Guardian, Viper SC+ and Viper SC+ Base Station. This acquisition has a unique connection to NextGen RF’s President, David Mitchell, along with several engineers from the NextGen RF team who were instrumental in the engineering and development of these products 16 years ago with the original company Dataradio - which was acquired by CalAmp in 2006. In 2008, when NextGen RF was founded, a partnership between the two companies began.
“We are pleased to welcome these products into the NextGen RF brand and feel confident that we can fully support the current product while we take it to the next level in the coming years,” said NextGen RF President, David Mitchell. “The history I have with Dataradio, as well as several engineers from the NextGen RF team, made this an ideal choice. We are excited to grow our product line and company in such a natural way with this acquisition.”
The 10-year plus partnership between NextGen RF and CalAmp expanded over the past year when CalAmp selected NextGen RF to become the contract manufacturer, as well as provide RMA service for the Guardian and Viper SC+ products. Bringing these products into the NextGen RF family allows for continued sustainability with the current portfolio and the ability to revive and improve the high quality, ruggedized radio products for the current and future customer base. NextGen RF’s partnership with established distribution partners will continue to bring high quality service to our customers.
“NextGen RF wants distributors and customers to truly understand that we have a historic and deep connection in mutual product development and engineering with Dataradio and CalAmp,” Mitchell said. “We are committed to providing quality engineering and exceptional customer service.” Dataradio was founded in 1981 and was acquired by CalAmp in May 2006.
Dataradio was founded in 1981 and was a leading supplier of proprietary advanced wireless data systems, products and solutions for public safety, critical infrastructure and industrial control applications until it was acquired by CalAmp in May 2006.
