JVCKenwood to Acquire Relay Systems Developer Radio Activity

Posted on January 2, 2018

Two-way radio supplier JVCKenwood Corp. has announced plans to acquire Radio Activity S.r.l., a technology company based in Milan, Italy.

Radio Activity develops relay systems that are compatible with DMR-compliant digital radios. The company is reportedly recognized for its technological capabilities and expertise, particularly in building simulcast networks.

With the acquisition, Radio Activity will become a wholly owned subsidiary of JVCKenwood.

“This acquisition further supports our expansion in DMR digital radio system solutions,” said Mark Jasin, executive vice president of JVCKenwood USA Corp. “As more users turn to digital radio technology, particularly in private radio enterprise segments where spectrum is constrained, Tier III trunking and simulcast provide a necessary option for wide area coverage required by utilities, manufacturing, and other industrial users.”

JVCKenwood manufactures analog and digital two-way radios, including P25-compliant and Nexedge radios that use the NXDN protocol.
