Fixed network system offers utilities many benefits


Sensus LogoPittsburgh, PA, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — February 28, 2007 – FlexNet is the flagship advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution offered by Sensus Metering Systems. Utilities offering electricity, gas, water or any combination thereof deploying the FlexNet system will increase meter reading efficiency, reduce overhead costs and enhance customer service.

The solution delivers primary-use licensing by the Federal Communications Commission, which guarantees an uncluttered transmission path, and paves the way for an industry-leading two watts of power, making FlexNet the only mass-deployed utility system to enjoy the highest level of protection, power and productivity in North America.

FlexNet’s single-tier design relays communications directly from meter to receiver. The streamlined infrastructure eliminates complex databases, algorithms and store-and-forward nodes, while maintaining coverage over a large geographical area.

FlexNet is designed to allow both one-way and two-way meter endpoints to co-exist in the same network, giving customers the freedom to apply FlexNet to all of their endpoints.
