A Smart Grid Network That Adapts to ChangeJune 18, 2012 No Comments
Trees are a growing problem with smart grid networks. Every day, they stretch toward the sun, expand, droop, lean, and sometimes fall down, changing the physical environment in which wireless networks operate. In some cases, if uncorrected, they can cause network failure.
The usual way to fix that is to put in another base station or concentrator, at additional cost. That’s because routing the network around changes in its environment is complicated, both to plan and then to deploy — and once you’ve deployed, the trees have gone and grown and fallen again, wrecking your model. That’s how Andres Carvallo, chief strategy officer at Proximetry, described the problem he’s hoping a new partnership with EDX Wireless will solve.DATA and ANALYTICS
