The MegaNet high-powered, long-range, fixed-network advanced metering infrastructure system from Mueller Systems uses 2-watt licensed radio transmission to serve as a true end-to-end RF AMI. Utilities can choose from completely managing their networks without the need for vendor-managed services, or employ a hosted solution to assist with network monitoring. The system is suited for applications in which high power is required due to topology or other infrastructure challenges. Meter transmission units transmit usage and alarm data from meters directly to the head-end, or in the case of long-range or challenging topography, a long-range collector. The collector verifies the strength of the signal through the hand-held device immediately on site, providing instant network verification. Data is obtained and transmitted via the MTU. The head-end unit receives transmissions from the collector or directly from MTUs. The data is then recorded and stored on an on-site server and displayed on the feature-rich, intuitive MCM data management software package. 800/323-8584;
