Infrax Systems Inc., a provider of smart grid-related products and services, has completed the development of its Secure Network Interface Card (SNIC).

According to Infrax, although the card is designed for the Itron Centron II family of smart meters, its architecture allows it to be adapted to accommodate meters from any other manufacturer.

Infrax says the dual card platform contains enhanced security to ensure data transmitted to and from meters is protected. The company notes its GRIDMesh communication network operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency band.

The SNIC module is being tested in several lab trials as it is prepared for ANSI lab and FCC certifications, and production is expected to start in the first quarter of 2014, Infrax adds.
