FlexNet: Redefining Smart City Communications
Source: Sensus, a Xylem brand
Building smart cities takes technology and networking solutions with in-depth views and infrastructure control. The Sensus FlexNet® communication network is a long-range radio network that provides scalable and reliable two-way infrastructure.
- The highest signal power and range in the industry: Transmit at up to two watts (10 - 1000X more power than devices on unlicensed spectrum), and up to 40 miles from point to point.
- Consistent, quality communications: A dedicated highway for data transmission makes communication more reliable than systems requiring channel-hopping.
- Large geographical footprint: FlexNet operates on 900MHz spectrum owned by Sensus, which carries inventory to support future data requirements.
- Extensive device Support: FlexNet supports a wide variety of devices and meters—even if battery powered, which can be problematic in mesh networks.
