Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announces acquisition of NG-911, Inc. and receives multi-year contr
Comtech Telecommunications Corp. has announced that during the Company’s third quarter of fiscal 2020, it closed an acquisition of NG-911, Inc., a pioneer of Next Generation 911 solutions for public safety agencies in the Midwest. NG-911 is one of the first Next Generation 911 solution providers in the Midwest and has successfully deployed regional Comtech Solacom systems in the past.
In connection with the acquisition, Comtech was awarded several contracts to deploy Comtech’s Solacom’s Guardian Call Handling solutions to the 9-1-1 Northern Illinois Next Generation Alliance Consortium (NINGA), valued at more than $15.0 million over a multi-year period.
Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., stated, “The acquisition of NG-911 allows us to cost-effectively deploy our industry leading Guardian call management solutions for public safety answering points across Illinois and Iowa and enhances our relationship with existing customers.”
The operations of NG-911 have been immediately combined with Comtech Solacom (a leading provider of call handling solutions) and the financial impact of the acquisition was not material.
