Lots of impressive reading
Most of financing is very long term;first
interest due 2003,first principle 2007.
system of using already available communication network
is viable,this is how itri does it?,why is cnds
going to added expense of building out their own ?
Wasn't the contract in the DQE system that all
the meters were to be read by the the pole receivers?
3% failure rate isn't that much, but when you spread
them out over the entire area of DQE, you basically
have to drive the entire works. This doesn't make the
process very efficient And this is after additional pole
receivers were installed. Is their any word if or when
Itron will introduce an ERT module with 100mw of power
and true DSSS like Cellnet and others?
If three percent is noise level, what happens in
the future when there is more noise (since the ERT
modules don't like noise). Does that three percent become
30% or 50%? ITRI is banking on repeat business.
Wouldn't this defeat that? FCC has speculated into opening
up the bandwidths to other commercial uses, and then
noise will be a huge problem to the current ERT's...
Back to my original question and the answer for noise
levels, when will Itron introduce true DSSS and 100 mw to
the ERT module to combat noise and make their
technology withstand challenges from competitiors and govt
