San Diego, November 15, 2011 — On-Ramp Wireless announced it has signed an agreement with Fountain Springs, a South Korean smart metering company, to deploy its advanced metering infrastructure solution in conjunction with Korea Telecom, a South Korean integrated telecommunication service provider.
Based on On-Ramp Wireless’ Ultra-Link Processing wireless networking platform for utility automation, On-Ramp and Fountain Springs will deliver new technology to enable Korea’s smart grid initiative, which will allow Korea Telecom to improve energy efficiency, lower costs and accelerate deployment of smart grid applications.
Driven by a desire for greater energy security, sustained economic growth and to reduce environmental impact, the South Korean government is on a mission to transform the ways electricity is generated, distributed and consumed.
On-Ramp’s ULP wireless communication technology, in conjunction with Fountain Springs’ AMI solution and advanced data analytics and meter data management capabilities, helps utilities manage power consumption throughout all end points of the distribution network. The fully integrated ULP communications network supports thousands of meters per access point in challenging urban RF environments.
