The 450 MHz Band: Security, Reach, And Reliability For Smart Water Metering

Since the early 1980s, the 900 MHz frequency band has been widely used for wireless communications in consumer, business, and municipal applications.

Today, as utility operators strive to deploy more efficient and reliable advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) networks and connect water metering with the smart grid, manufacturers have looked outside the 900 MHz band to build communication systems that provide better range, security, and availability from end to end.
