The TotalPoint System creates a mesh network that maximizes range through intelligent routing, ensures redundancy with dynamic self-healing properties, and enables advanced metering applications such as on-demand reads, TOU rate programs, and remote disconnect/reconnect.
Integrated under-the-glass of leading solid state metrology, TotalPoint Meter Interface Modules collect time-stamped interval data and store the information on-board in non-volatile memory. It is then transmitted via the WebGate IP Extension Mesh to IP gateways, which seamlessly connect to any available broadband WAN technology for meter data back-haul. The TotalPoint System uses Ethernet, fiber, WiFi, DS2 and HomePlug-compliant broadband over powerline and HFC cable networks for back-haul purposes.
The TotalPoint System has been specifically designed around open protocols and standards-based networking technologies that enable utilities to leverage existing shared cost communications infrastructure.
