Aeris strengthens its Utility presence

Wireless communications service provider Aeris Communications has announced the certification of Applied Mesh Technologies on the Aeris network.

Applied Mesh’s DCX (Direct Connect eXternal) is the latest in automation communications technology to be certified on the Aeris CDMA2000® 1XRTT/EV-DO wireless network.

Aeris provides integrated communications solutions for smart grid, smart metering, and demand response applications, while Applied Mesh develops communication solutions provide utility companies with the capability to remotely monitor their systems to save money and increase operational efficiency.

The Aeris network coupled with the DCX solution offers utility companies expanded capability to reliably and securely receive wireless data.

“Through customer application of the DCX solution utilising the Aeris network under difficult cellular coverage conditions and stringent security requirements, Aeris gives us total confidence the utility customer will receive data reliably and securely,” said Mark Leach, vice president of marketing and sales, Applied Mesh.

Stating that Aeris continues to invest in wireless infrastructure to increase reliability, security and ease of use of wireless data applications, its VP sales Mark Cratsenburg said the company’s infrastructure significantly reduced the number of devices that did not work at install due to poor cell coverage, saving Applied Mesh time and money.
