Connectivity Solutions for
Mission Critical IIoT
The push for highly advanced automation in electric and water utility operations has created a demand for more reliable and secure wireless data networks. Utilities are establishing a new, more reliable Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), referred to as Mission Critical Internet of Things (MC-IoT), to manage thousands of remote devices in the field, including low-cost edge-computing devices, which streamlines operational efficiency.
At inception, Ondas Networks was dedicated solely to developing network and data communication technologies, including its line of software defined radios (SDRs), for the electric utility industry. The stringent communication requirements of electric utilities helped to shape Ondas’ private network technologies, which today are being implemented by other mission-critical industries that demand heightened security, reliability, availability and low latency.
Ondas’ electric and water utility customers utilize these private network solutions to establish MC-IoT connectivity for automated operations and enhanced security against various threats to data disruption including cyber and natural disasters. For electric utilities specifically, these networks help to create smart grids that are closer to providing ‘perfect power’ and enable the incorporation of distributed energy resources. Our network solutions are often used for higher-level functions like substation automation and distribution automation (DA), including circuit breakers, switches, voltage regulators, reclosers, capacitor bank controllers, and solar inverters.
