Utilities

Utility companies facing the greatest engineering challenge of our times

Utilities today face the unenviable challenge of continuing to meet societal expectations of providing reliable service, at low cost, while maintaining an ageing infrastructure, reducing greenhouse gases and conserving energy and water resources. The drive to meet this challenge in a resource constrained environment has meant that utilities are now at the forefront of all things smart: smart water, smart sewer system, smart meters, and smart grid.

 

Transforming the 20th century utility infrastructure into a dynamic, reliable, economy-enhancing and environmentally friendly, intelligent infrastructure of the 21st century is the greatest engineering challenge of our times. Many utilities across the globe have already embarked on this journey of transformation, and many more are joining by taking the first step of building a reliable, industrial-grade, communications network as the enabler of this transformation.

 

Industrial wireless networks are a key enabler of digital transformation. Utilities are no strangers to wireless communications technologies, having used the industrial versions of this technology for telemetry applications since the 1940s.

 

Redline’s high performance, industrial wireless systems, purpose-built for digital transformation of critical infrastructure, help you achieve greater reliability, security, safety and efficiency, allowing you to respond to customers’ rapidly evolving water or energy demand, in real-time.

Redline iLTE is a compact, complete LTE system that can be rapidly deployed anywhere. Redline iLTE is a comprehensive suite of private LTE products and services that combine to deliver security, flexibility, scalability and durability to the mobile network. iLTE provides a turnkey approach to private LTE with its rapid deployment and ease of management.

Virtual Fiber®

Redline Virtual Fiber wireless access products are built for extreme reliability and performance. These products can be used in the toughest environmental conditions, rated to operate between -40° to +75°C for fixed point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communications and nomadic applications. They provide secure and reliable high-speed connectivity in these challenging, isolated locations, and over rough non-line-of-sight terrain.

Industrial IoT

Remote, rugged environments demand industrial-grade communications for teleprotection and SCADA applications. Redline’s broadband wireless products with Virtual Fiber™ and iLTE technology are designed from the ground-up to be rugged and provide the capacity, range, reliability and real-time performance necessary to connect the utilities’ mission-critical applications.

Video Surveillance

Monitor the status of critical grid infrastructure in real-time with bullet cameras or high-definition point-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras in strategic locations across the grid, each connected to central control with a reliable, cost-efficient, high-capacity, point-to-multipoint radio system. Redline has the right technology for the intended application.

Rugged & Rapidly Deployable Networks

Regardless of existing infrastructure or environment, you can rely on Redline to rapidly deploy an always on, stringently secure and completely customized network that caters specifically to your mission-critical machine-to-machine communication needs.
