Unified communications network
More choices… more possibilities.
From our head-end EnergyAxis Management System to integration with your back-office systems, to our radio frequency mesh network, into the home strategies, and other components necessary to build the world’s most widely deployed two-way RF mesh solution, IP-based EnergyAxis is field-proven and offers the functionality, reliability and security that will exceed the communication needs of any utility.
Fastest and most effective AMI LAN
EnergyAxis boasts the most capable LAN in the industry. With operational speeds of 142kbps, the EnergyAxis LAN provides the speed and power your utility needs for years to come.
The networking ability of multiple AMI elements that act as repeaters circumvent most local RF problems resulting from terrain, location, building construction, trees and other signal impediments. This robust flexibility makes the EnergyAxis LAN operation far more effective at communications than many other fixed network designs.
Most WAN options
Elster offers with the widest choice of communication paths possible, from IP, cellular, WiFi to a multitude of proven WAN technology options that your utility may currently employ. EnergyAxis gives you the unparalleled ability to take advantage of existing public or private networks and is flexible enough to adapt to emerging technologies. Our open architecture ensures that the WAN you deploy is the best performing, most cost-effective solution for your service area.
HAN: integration made easy
We integrate with a number of HAN technologies and third-party manufacturers, and will continue to leverage our open standards-based design to expand functionality and communications support for load control devices, programmable thermostats, in-home displays and more, which will expand existing and future in-home initiatives.
