Demand for both water and power resources continues to grow. Technology advances allow increasingly sophisticated management of these resources, including remote monitoring and control. Whether managing distribution automation, advanced metering infrastructure and substation automation for electric utilities, or measuring water levels, equipment performance and flow rates for a water utility, wireless is becoming fundamental for utility management. As the use of wireless monitoring expands, so does the variety and volume of places we need to mount wireless equipment. For example, smart meter collection points and monitored reclosers on distribution lines both require numerous wireless connections. One of the considerations for an AMI or distribution automation deployment, expansion, site upgrade or repair is where and how the equipment will be mounted. Whether you need to mount a radio on a wood pole or an antenna on the side of a building, TESSCO provides the mounts you need. TESSCO's portfolio of mounts addresses the challenges of distributed points in a remote monitoring network. Whether you are embarking on your first remote monitoring project or have been managing a SCADA system for years, TESSCO helps you solve the challenges of building and maintaining an infrastructure reliable enough for your critical communications. From deciding between a private data network or a 4G/LTE public network, to transitioning from analog to digital, to determining the power requirements for a remote site, TESSCO's proven framework for architecting and deploying high-performance networks adapts to your unique objectives.
