6loWPAN Wireless Mesh Communications is now Available to the Energy Market Through Connode 4
STOCKHOLM, October 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Connode AB, the leading vendor in Europe of wireless communications for Smart Metering today announced availability of a new generation of all-IP products for the Energy market. Connode 4 is a break-through, industry-first platform. It is on display at the Metering 2012 exhibition in Amsterdam and it will start shipping in volume during 2013.
Connode wireless mesh communications technology is already one of the prime alternatives for Smart Metering in Europe due to its proven ability to meet very high requirements on lifecycle cost and performance. Connode 4 is the all-IP upgrade of the Connode platform, used for Smart Metering communications and other advanced machine-to-machine applications. It features a true IP-based portable SW architecture and is designed to use a new generation of frequency-agile radio-chipsets with much improved data-rates and reach.
Connode 4 provides IP-based interoperability and global standardisation to a utility sector that has been characterised and hampered by legacy, industry-specific protocols and lack of true interoperability.
Connode AB is the leading supplier in Europe of wireless communication products for Smart Metering, acting as an OEM and technology supplier to major system vendors active on the rapidly expanding Smart Grid market.
Connode is the result of 10 years development and deployment of large-scale wireless mesh networks. Since 2006 customers in Sweden, Finland, Norway, U.K. and the Netherlands have deployed some 650.000 Connode-enabled Smart Meters. Connode AB is owned by Capman, a leading Nordic investment company with approx. €3.5 billion in capital.
