Johnson Controls provides new LTE solutions for security and alarm communications

MILWAUKEE (March 21, 2018) – Johnson Controls announces the introduction of the DSC LTE Universal and PowerSeries Neo LTE Alarm Communicators, offering flexible communication options that work with LTE and existing 3G* networks. The new communicators ensure current and future compatibility with more modern cellular networks as mobile providers have started to phase out their legacy 2G/3G communication networks.

The DSC family of LTE Universal Alarm Communicators provides compatibility with most security panels offered in the market today, ensuring a smooth transition to LTE. The PowerSeries Neo LTE Alarm Communicator ensures high-speed, reliable communications now and into the future by providing cellular and/or IP connectivity, in addition to the encrypted PowerG wireless technology used by PowerSeries Neo.

“Today, 2G (GPRS/CDMA) networks are being shut down and even 3G (HSPA/HSPA+/EVDO) networks have started to give way to the power and longevity of LTE,” said Dwayne Salsman, Senior Product Manager, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “Investing in an LTE Communicator now will help companies protect their security system investment and extend the usefulness and effectiveness of their existing system.”

Switching to an LTE Communicator allows customers to upgrade without replacing the entire system with the knowledge that they have invested in a product that will be viable for many more years to come.
