Accurate meter readings, outage restoration, distribution automation, demand response, voltage management—all data-driven capabilities that are the lifeblood of your smart grid communication network. So why would you trust them to anything less than a secure, dedicated network?
The Sensus FlexNet® smart grid communication network is the only private, two-way network available. You’ll never share radio frequencies, so data from your smart meters and sensors is transmitted quickly and securely. You can rely on the delivery of accurate information to help you respond faster, reduce system demand, and control your grid.
Applications at scale
Whether you’re seeking insights from customer data or require real-time updates on the health of your distribution system, the options are boundless when powered by FlexNet. For example:
Remote Management – Stay in control with an AMI solution that adapts to your needs. Retrieve data continuously or on-demand, and still adapt to give your customers what they want through opt-in/opt-out capabilities.
Outage Management – Zero in on where and why your outage occurred, and restore power quickly. After the storm, use Sensus phase detection to identify overloaded phases and rebalance your system.
Smart Street Lighting– Seize the opportunity to conserve energy, manage your assets, reduce maintenance costs and promote public safety using our VantagePoint™ Lighting Control solution.
