World Wireless Communications to demonstrate new under-glass AMR solution at upcoming symposium


GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Sept. 27, 2002 — World Wireless Communications, a developer of wired and wireless Internet systems, technology and products, announced today that the company will demonstrate its under-glass X-traWeb AMR System at the 2002 AMRA International Symposium, one of the largest industry conferences of the year.

The symposium will take place from September 29th to October 2nd 2002 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

World Wireless Communications will demonstrate their new under-glass integration of the X-traWeb AMR system with specific utility meters. The AMR system is highly functional yet simple in design. By combining many years of experience designing and implementing RF networks and a utility feedback, they have developed a unique AMR system.

The World Wireless Communications AMR system is comprised of two main components: X-Gate and X-Node. The X-Node mounts under the glass of the electric meter and provides a mechanism by which meter rotations can be counted and the data archived and uploaded to the X-Gate at user configurable time periods. The X-Gate provides a data concentration point for hundreds of X-Nodes and a means to connect to the Internet for daily uploads of a batch of meters to the server.

The AMRA International Symposium is sponsored by the AMRA; the world’s largest nonprofit association dedicated to AMR and related technologies. The organization addresses standardization, justification and deployment practices in the application and advancement of enhanced customer-service and resource-management technologies. AMR-industry pioneers formed AMRA in the United States in 1986.

The mission is to support members through accurate and balanced educational forums, identification of new technologies, trends and applications that will facilitate the link between members’ business needs and the technology. Educational and networking opportunities sponsored by AMRA help members make informed decisions about AMR and resource-management technology and participate more effectively in the metering, communications and data-management industry.
