Arcadian Networks launches new gateway for smart grid communications

Integrates WiMax and other technologies on 700MHz platform

By CBR Staff Writer

Arcadian Networks, a private wireless communications provider, has launched a second generation router/gateway AE20r, which allows utilities to gather real-time information from virtually any converged platform, empowering them to manage and monitor assets and generate smart grid efficiencies.

By combining Arcadian’s licensed 700 MHz spectrum with an interface to WiMAX, utilities can now leverage the wide-scale coverage, security and reliability of the licensed spectrum with the increased capacity and redundancy provided by WiMAX, the company claims.

According to Arcadian, the AE20r enhances the company’s package of communication offerings that include licensed and secure 700MHz spectrum, IP, open-standards based hardware and an energy focused expertise in design and build-out.

In addition, the multiple AE20r interfaces are capable of supporting Arcadian 700MHz, WiMAX (802.16e, 802.16d), Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), 3G/4G (EVDO,GPRS,EDGE,HSPA,LTE), Serial, USB, ethernet and 900MHz (ISM and MAS) industrial radio.

Arnon Afgin, vice president of research and development at Arcadian Networks, said: The design of the AE20r is modular and open, to accommodate the complex requirements of our customers. Not only can the AE20r collapse multiple network technologies into a single compact and converged platform, but our router can also be utilised for both fixed deployments (hot zones, smart grid, smart meter, etc.) as well as low-cost rugged mobile deployments of the field force.
