The patent-pending MeterPod™ designed by AxissComm LLC is an intelligent, remote data acquisition controller with cellular communications capabilities. It can modify, compress and encrypt messages between a host system and the local device. The MeterPod’s flexibility and extensibility, combined with its integrated intelligence, can bridge different protocols. It can also provide diagnostic, event and error logging.

The MeterPod serves as an intelligent bridge between the cellular network and devices that contain an internal analogue modem or other types of asynchronous communication channels. It can be installed where multiple devices need to be monitored and controlled, as well as where some protocol conversion is necessary between new and existing technology.
