Servicing over a million end-users in an approximately 2900 square mile area, Salt River Project is one of the USA’s largest public power utilities. In addition to electricity, SRP also delivers over 800,000 acre-feet of water to customers annually.
Having acquired 2 MHz of spectrum in the 700 MHz Upper A Block in 2015, SRP required a partner to provide the communications infrastructure for a new 1300 square mile Field Area Network (FAN).
Encompassing three Arizona counties, including the metropolitan Phoenix area, the FAN is required to enable centralized monitoring and control of SRP’s distributed power and water systems. SRP’s new FAN will also be used to monitor and control power flows into and out of the grid from numerous advanced solar installations.
With spectrum being both scarce and valuable, the biggest challenge was to find a solutions provider who could optimize data throughput in the narrowband channel SRP had available.
Mimomax Tornado Radio (Tier I) and Mimomax Pyxis Radio (Tier II) in a Multi-Tier Field Area Network (FAN).
Key features: up to 1280 kb/s data rate in 50KHz at Tier I level, sophisticated data compression techniques plus frequency re-use at Tier II level.
Application: SCADA, Distribution Automation, Advanced Meter Infrastructure.
Our award-winning MIMO Tornado radio is pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved in narrowband channels.
Providing automated support for both a warm and hot standby system, with the Mimomax Tornado 1+1, if one radio fails a second standby radio is automatically switched in to take over.
Sharing common features and interfaces with our high spec Tornado radio, Pyxis has been designed to operate either as a stand-alone radio or to be deployed alongside Tornado as a Tier II endpoint in a multi-tier network.
Gain visibility and control over all of your Distribution Automation, AMI and DER equipment with a high capacity Field Area Network from Mimomax.
Our wireless SCADA communications utilize MIMO technology and full duplex communications to allow our customers to run more applications across the one network.
Connect and monitor distributed assets across your grid through our easy-to-install multi-tier DER Communications network
The successful implementation of Distribution Automation technologies relies heavily on a communications network with the capacity and latency to allow for the rapid monitoring and control of critical grid assets.
Mimomax offers two options to meet your AMI requirements - either a robust, lower capacity Pyxis radio network designed for easy deployment to multiple endpoints or a multi-application, multi-tier solution based on the award-winning Tornado radio.
Our robust communication solutions are deployed across the globe in point-to-point and point-to-multipoint configurations to support industrial infrastructure for Utility, Oil and Mining companies and to provide linking for Public Safety and Transport organisations.
