Newer uses of broadband wireless communications include Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) and remote site video surveillance which will improve efficiency, performance and security.

The geographic diversity of facilities in electricity generation, transmission, and distribution means electric utilities are very well positioned to access the benefits of broadband wireless data communications. Vista provides world-class Broadband Wireless Networks to enable electric utility companies to:

  • Increase efficiency
  • Increase security and reliability
  • Reduce operating costs

Vista’s Broadband Wireless Network will enable:

  • Smart Grid applications
  • Safety and security through video surveillance and monitoring
  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) applications
  • Energy Management Systems (EMS) with grid optimization applications
  • Effective fault and outage detection and management
  • Broadband over Power Line (BPL)
  • Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI)
  • Flexible wireless connectivity within generating stations
  • Remote site access to Internet and voice communications

AMI technology is becoming increasingly pervasive and relevant to electric utilities. Recent commitments by the US Department of Energy and provinces of Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan, and Ontario support Smart Grid technology to promote energy efficiency. It is only a matter of time before all Canadian provinces make similar commitments. Vista’s expertise and depth of experience enabling applications, including AMI technology, makes Vista your first choice in Broadband Wireless Networks.

Vista improves the performance of electric utilities using Broadband Wireless Infrastructure applications, including:

            Vista supports VHF/UHF wireless networks for SCADA applications as well, providing radio, repeater, and antenna installation and maintenance support.

            With decades of experience in deploying highly reliable Broadband Wireless Infrastructure for telecommunications carriers, Vista’s world-class installations start with strong wireless network planning and engineering, and “clean” and reliable wireless equipment installations. This expertise is applied to all of Vista’s wireless projects and services to ensure the delivery of reliable high performance wireless networks.
