CalAmp Corp., a provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has been selected 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).

CalAmp's Viper SC system will serve as the communications link between Elster's EnergyAxis AMI concentrators and NHEC's core communications infrastructure. CalAmp says the extended range and coverage of the Viper system should enable NHEC to benefit from lower infrastructure costs and high data speeds over a private network for secure smart grid data backhaul.

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 already begun, with completion expected in mid-2013.
