On-Ramp Wireless, a developer of wireless solutions for energy automation and machine-to-machine communications, has announced the launch of its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution built on the On-Ramp Total Reach Network, the company's wireless communications infrastructure.

On-Ramp says its solution delivers advanced metering features and standard integration with billing, meter data management and other utility systems. Once deployed, the On-Ramp Total Reach Network is designed to manage two-way AMI communications and handle periodic surges in data traffic, such as a wide-scale power outage notification.

In addition, On-Ramp has announced that GE has selected On-Ramp's Total Reach Network for its Grid IQ Advanced Metering Infrastructure Point-to-Multipoint solution, which includes GE's residential and commercial/industrial meters and GE's Smart Metering Operations Suite.
