Here at AMCi-Wireless, we continue to pursue and drive innovation and efficiency solutions for our customers. In this edition of News Flash we will discuss our mesh radio network products and our new Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD) Smart Switch.
Mesh radio networks are a great solution for sites with multiple data collection points. Using a radio network avoids the need for cellular or satellite terminals at each data collection point and allows the consolidation of data to a single communications device. The mesh radio solution works in conjunction with AMCi’s Cellular and Satellite solutions and is an alternative to having individual terminals on each piece of equipment, reducing airtime costs. With the mesh radio network you can still view, poll and analyze equipment and data from SatAlarm®-Server. The image below illustrates the concept of mesh radio networks, working through both cellular and satellite solutions.
Some of the advantages of a mesh radio network system include: lower hardware costs, easily managed airtime costs (having several sites billed through one terminal), and the same visibility in SatAlarm®-Server as individual units.
