The City of Corpus Christi has selected the Hexagram STAR® fixed network AMR system to automate its water and gas meter reading activities. The system will use the City's WiFi and fibre-optic network for the AMR communications structure.

The project is a joint effort between Hexagram Inc., Northrop Grumman Commercial Information Systems Inc. and National Metering Services. Northrop Grumman is the prime integrator of the proposed system, and National Metering Services will provide field services for the water and gas meter transmission unit installations.

The STAR fixed network AMR system is a turnkey solution, from multiport transmission units to intelligent data collection hardware to sophisticated software tools and diagnostic reports.
