CalAmp and Kepware Partner for Smart Grid Communications

CalAmp Corp. and Kepware Technologies have introduced the Air Traffic Controller, a distributed communications processor that optimizes bandwidth over wireless networks. The ATC from CalAmp, which licenses Open Connectivity-compliant OPC-UA technology from Kepware, enables multiple wireless applications to share a single wireless network while maintaining optimal communications performance.

The ATC is the embodiment of CalAmp's Distributed Architecture Solution, which maximizes the performance of industrial communications by moving intelligence to the edge of the network. The Kepware protocols embedded in the ATC provide data processing and traffic management over wireless networks for SmartGrid applications such as AMI, Distribution Automation and Demand Response.
