The Complete Submetering Solution

The complete Submetering Solution consists of three wireless network elements and related software all specifically designed for wireless utility submetering in large multi-floor apartment buildings, campuses and industrial complexes. MDTs are the network endpoints connected to each meter. Radio repeaters are used to extend the range of the network when needed. The root node of the network is the DCAP which manages the network and collects the meter data. Our Configuration and Installation Tool (CIT) software provides a user-friendly interface with the submetering network from a Windows PC. The network radio link is two-way 900 MHz for robust connectivity.
