Landis+Gyr Certifies CalAmp WAN Products for Use in Gridstream Advanced Metering System Apps

Landis+Gyr has successfully verified compatibility of its Gridstream smart grid solution with private and public wide area network products from CalAmp.

Landis+Gyr successfully completed testing of three data back-haul solutions from CalAmp, including the Vanguard 3G for use with cellular networks, the Viper SC for private RF networks in licensed bands, and the Phantom II for unlicensed 902-928 MHz networks. Following testing, Landis+Gyr certified the products as interoperable with the Gridstream RF network.

“The certification of CalAmp’s wide area network products provides our Gridstream solution with more tested options for bringing data back to the utility,” said Jeff Carkhuff, vice president of Product Management at Landis+Gyr. “This is another example of how we integrate with technologies that offer the best performance and cost effectiveness for each application.”

Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream network provides a complete smart grid solution for advanced metering, distribution automation and personal energy management. CalAmp develops and markets wireless communications solutions that deliver data, voice and video for critical networked communications and other applications.
