What does it take to provide training, emergency and technical assistance and communications to 90 member municipalities and 1.2 million customers?
ElectriCitiesWR31, which maintains this complex network that covers thousands of square miles and collects data from a variety of meters and telemetry equipment in order to offer communications and management services to its member utilities, decided on an LTE solution. The LTE solution gives ElectriCities a dependable network connection for frequent meter reading, while being flexible enough to support communications with Schneider, Itron, JEMStar and SEL devices.
The Digi TransPort® WR31 LTE router from Digi International gave ElectriCities the right combination of both reliability and flexibility: achieved thorough VPN performance and HALT testing, backed by a 5-year warranty, via the software-defined multicarrier support that permits the same WR31 unit to switch between Verizon, AT&T and all other North American LTE carriers.
