ELECTRIC UTILITIES


Powering new IIoT gains that give utility providers a smarter edge

Addressing increased regulatory and customer pressure requires an intelligent plan forward.

With FreeWave, utility providers can rapidly enhance their current infrastructure to pull more data from their remote operations, driving efficiency, automating processes and compliance, and delighting end-users.

Add New Intelligence to Your Utility Operations, Today

Breathe new life into aging utility systems with FreeWave’s ‘Edge Evolved’ connectivity and computing solutions. Not only can you easily connect to dispersed assets for reliable data transfer, even in challenging RF environments, but you can also enable data processing to take place where these assets reside – in real-time as the data is generated.

 

Adding this IQ-infused smart layer to your existing network infrastructure immediately reduces bandwidth requirements – by as much as 80% to 95% – and in turn allows more data to be utilized across your utility grid. With more insights, you can make better, faster decisions about operational performance and maintenance needs, and enable remote site automation to optimize grid management from any location.
