New 4G Radios Designed to Provide Maximum Longevity and Higher Speed
MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 22, 2012– Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced it is offering 4G alarm communications technology on its VISTA platform, one of the security industry’s most widely used lines of alarm panels. In making 4G technology available for VISTA, Honeywell continues to standardize its systems on the industry’s newest and fastest alarm communications to maximize the longevity of their offerings. The first VISTA panels that will offer 4G – the GSMX4G and GSMV4G – are available now.
Earlier this year, Honeywell released its first 4G radio based on the HSPA+ network when it introduced its LYNX Touch 5100 self-contained system. Driven by the mobile-device industry and consumer demand for speed and network longevity, many major carriers are prioritizing 4G implementations over slower alternatives.
“As we saw with the success of the LYNX Touch 5100, choosing to standardize on 4G HSPA+ ensures reliable coverage as it takes advantage of the largest available 4G network,” said Gordon Hope, general manager of Honeywell’s AlarmNet communications network. “History has shown that faster networks gain favor with carriers, so investing in this 4G technology is a smart investment in the future for a dealer’s business.”
The new VISTA 4G radios also fully integrate with Honeywell
Total Connect™ Remote Services. For more information on Honeywell’s 4G technology, please visit
