    Camp will benefit from US grid upgrade program

    Cellular Concentrator

    The CalAmp WiMetry is an Internet Protocol-based, bidirectional wireless data concentrator platform used for advanced metering and demand response monitoring and control applications. The platform also has other smart grid applications and facilitates real-time acquisition of critical usage and rate data from electric, gas or water meters via public wireless networks and the Internet. Leveraging CalAmp's more than 20 years of experience with wireless data networks, WiMetry addresses the needs of utility companies that require secure wireless data communications and networking platforms that provide cost-effective and reliable service.

    The WiMetry platform supports the latest in cellular 3G high-speed data communications and is backward compatible to existing EV-DO Rev. 0 and 1x networks. WiMetry takes advantage of ongoing investments made by cellular network operators to build-out, improve and maintain ubiquitous, reliable wireless networks using the latest standards, thereby enabling utility companies to focus on their core business rather than having to establish their own proprietary wireless networks.

    WiMetry uses the industry standard TCP/IP communication protocol and is compatible with most leading software applications, including Itron's MV-90 xi. It offers wired EIA-232, EIA-485 and Ethernet connectivity as well as wireless Zigbee connectivity to remote sensors and thermostats.

    "WiMetry is the most advanced communications platform for smart grid and advanced metering communications today and enhances our wireless connectivity offering in the AMR/AMI industry," according to Mark Christensen, Vice President and General Manager of CalAmp's Industrial Monitoring and Controls unit. "Our earlier generation Omega product line was one of the most innovative cellular-based AMR devices in the industry when it was first introduced. WiMetry takes this to the next level, allowing utility companies to further improve their business with state-of-the-art wireless technology."
