On-Ramp Wireless Rolls Out AMI Solution
Feb 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
On-Ramp Wireless, developer of wireless solutions for energy automation and M2M communications, announced the launch of its metering infrastructure (AMI) solution, which is built on the On-Ramp Total Reach Network, its wireless communications infrastructure.
According to a release, through partnerships with meter and meter data management system (MDMS) providers, On-Ramp supports smart metering capabilities on the same network infrastructure that supports grid automation and demand response. On-Ramp announced that GE has selected On-Ramp's Total Reach Network for its Grid IQ Advanced Metering Infrastructure Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) solution, which includes GE's residential and commercial/industrial meters and GE's Smart Metering Operations Suite (SMOS). This is another validation of the benefits of AMI and Smart Grid solutions Powered by On-Ramp.
The On-Ramp Total Reach Network offers range and capacity, enabling AMI network coverage for less than competing solutions. Purpose-built to realize the incredible promise of the machine-to-machine vision, including AMI, On-Ramp's solution delivers metering features and standard integration with billing, meter data management, and other utility systems.
"On-Ramp has leveraged its proven expertise at secure, wide-area M2M communications to create the most effective AMI solution available today," said Kevin Hell, president and CEO of On-Ramp Wireless. "Utilities are benefiting today from the growing ecosystem of meter manufacturers and MDMS providers Powered by On-Ramp. No other solution offers the cost, coverage and capability of the On Ramp Total Reach Network."
On-Ramp Wireless will be demonstrating its AMI solution and introducing its AMI partners at TechAdvantage 2013 (booth 1253) in New Orleans on February 18-21.
