iTegno Data Concentrator Unit (DCU) is part of the Automated Meter Reading (AMR)/ Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) communications for iTegno end-to-end smart utilities solution.
iTegno DCU serves as a central collection point to aggregrate and collect meter reads from iTegno SIUs in a Local Area Network (point-to-point / mesh). iTegno DCU cellular connectivity provides fast and reliable long-range capability via GPRS or 3G that enables remote endpoint configuration for AMR/AMI backhaul system. iTegno DCU gathers meter readings, alerts and irregular operational data like tampering, system’s component malfunction, etc. from multiple-points and transmits information to the backhaul operations via cellular network.
- Low operating cost design with optimized fixed network system with cellular connectivity
- Reliable long-range cellular coverage enables utilities to deploy endpoint connectivity anywhere
- IP rated enclosure, rugedized to suit harsh and challenging field conditions
- Near real-time connectivity improves utilities operation efficiency and customer service
