Electric utilities with large automatic meter reading projects could be among the immediate beneficiaries of a nationwide discount cellular service now offered by Telenetics Corp. The company, which designs and manufactures wireless data-communications solutions for utility and industrial automation, will offer a Flat-Rate-Cellular service as an enhancement to its products. Telenetics expects the service to generate significant savings for customers. According to the company, the Flat-Rate-Cellular service offers a proprietary technology that lets customers send more data through cellular networks with a shorter connection time and higher speeds than is normally achieved. Telenetics is already providing the discount cellular service to the city of Los Angeles and several AMR pilot projects in the Midwest.
