Wireless Backhaul

With many years of experience in designing and deploying wireless solutions in mission-critical settings, Fluidmesh is uniquely positioned to help utilities with their wireless networking needs. Our Wireless Solution has been designed to be fully compliant and integrated with other wired or wireless transmission technologies to create a fully-integrated IP-based intelligent network.

The key component of all Smart Grid initiatives is a pervasive IP-network to connect smart appliances and meters in homes and offices with electricity producers. Thanks to this network, the usage patterns of each resource can be optimized based on its availability on the grid.

Fluidmesh technology can be adopted, both as a network backhaul to interconnect the different components of the Smart Grid such as substations, transformers, synchrophasors, and distributed generators, and for home area network applications such as metering data collection. This wide array of applications is possible because Fluidmesh is a proven wireless vendor capable of providing a "one-box" wireless system that includes point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and mesh architectures operating at 900 MHz in non-line-of-sight scenarios and at 2.4 and 5 GHz in line-of-sight scenarios. Our patent-pending FluidMAX™ technology allows utilities to deploy the same hardware for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and mesh wireless infrastructures, significantly controlling total cost of ownership and supporting unmatched adaptability.
