Palo Alto, CA, Feb. 2, 2006 — Vyyo Inc., a supplier of broadband access equipment for cable and private wireless broadband network solutions, announced that it will demonstrate its wireless utility solution at the DistribuTech automation and technology conference for utilities next week.
At its exhibit booth at the Tampa Convention Center, Vyyo promises to show how its solution combines 700 MHz licensed spectrum with the company’s V3000 Broadband Wireless Hub and compatible modems to provide greater efficiency by replacing legacy dial-up and point-to-point monitoring with cost-effective, high-speed wireless data services.
Vyyo’s point to multipoint wireless, broadband solution is currently deployed by 40 independent telcos and utility companies. Additionally, the solution is being trialed by a large, Midwestern utility co-op for use in a multi-state, 50,000+ square mile wireless broadband network for managing and monitoring remote utility assets.
Vyyo’s technology is designed to enable management of remote utility locations, including accurate, real-time assessment of consumption, the reduction of excess power generation and the reallocation of power generation. In addition, the Vyyo solution is designed to allow utility customers to generate additional revenues using the same technology by providing high-speed internet services to rural commercial and residential subscribers.
