JVCKENWOOD Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of NEXEDGE® Technology

(Suwanee, GA) JVCKENWOOD Corporation announces the ten-year anniversary of the introduction of NEXEDGE digital radio technology in North America. NEXEDGE is built on the pioneering NXDN® Common Air Interface (CAI) which was recognized in 2017 as an international open standard after acceptance at the Study Group 5 meeting of the International Telecommunications Union Radiocommunications Sector (ITU-R) in November 2016 and in Report M-2014-3, published February 2017.  NEXEDGE radios have rapidly evolved since their introduction and now feature industry-leading multi-protocol digital operations, supported by ground-breaking IP-based NEXEDGE Gen2 system technology. Millions of NEXEDGE radios are used in every major industry and government setting and NEXEDGE is integrated into hundreds of local and regionally connected systems and thousands of sites.
