CalAmp Receives Contract for Wireless Radio Modems to Be Deployed by the Provincial Electric Authority of Thailand

04/30/09

OXNARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 30, 2009-- CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today announced a contract award for a large scale deployment of its Dataradio Integra-TR™ Wireless Radio Modem for a nationwide Smart Grid network with the Provincial Electric Authority (PEA) in Bangkok, Thailand. The initial contract is for 5,000 units that are scheduled to be deployed over the next 18 months.

The PEA utility serves millions of customers in Thailand. Historically, PEA's power system operations have utilized manual dispatch procedures augmented by voice communication rather than automated systems. PEA is currently in the process of upgrading its data communications infrastructure with the deployment of a new Distribution Management System specifically designed to address its operational requirements including distribution network modeling, connectivity and power flow analysis, fault isolation and system restoration, trouble call management and control functions. These systems allow PEA to manage the operation of the distribution system in real-time, and provide the tools to optimize the network and improve the quality and the reliability of service.

“The Dataradio Integra-TR overcomes limitations of traditional non-licensed spectrum radios such as limited range or susceptibility to interference and therefore is the ideal solution for critical telemetry communication,” said Rick Nozel, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CalAmp’s wireless networks business. “Utility customers appreciate the Integra-TR’s quick and easy deployment, the flexibility it offers to adapt its configuration to customer-specific applications, and its outstanding RF performance.”
