CalAmp to provide New Hampshire Electric Cooperative with wireless communications network

Jan 09, 2013 (M2 EQUITYBITES via COMTEX) -- CalAmp Corp (Nasdaq:CAMP), a provider of wireless products, services and solutions, on Tuesday announced its selection by the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative (NHEC) to supply the utility with wireless communications hardware for its wide-area Smart Meter advanced metering infrastructure (AMI).

Financial details of the selection were not available.

The NHEC Smart Meter AMI project is expected to result in more accurate and timely meter readings, providing members better information about their energy usage while facilitating operational efficiencies for NHEC.

CalAmp said that its Viper SC system will serve as the vital communications link between Elster's EnergyAxis AMI concentrators and NHEC's core communications infrastructure. The extended range and coverage of the Viper system is expected to enable NHEC to benefit from lower infrastructure costs and high data speeds over a private network for secure Smart Grid data backhaul.

Also, the long-range wireless network will span all nine counties in the NHEC service region and consist of hundreds of remote devices and dozens of base stations, including some mountain-top installations.

Deployment has reportedly already begun on the project, with completion expected in mid-2013.
