Utilities and energy providers can now deploy rugged multiservice routers in secondary substations, on pole tops, and in other harsh environments. Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers offer a reliable communications platform for smart metering, distribution automation, and remote workforce automation.
The 1000 series routers are designed for use in field area networks. The portfolio's two models are designed to operate reliably in various types of harsh environments, ranging from indoor substations to outdoor pole-top deployments.
Both models are modular and support a variety of communications interfaces, such as WiMAX, 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE, 900 MHz RF Mesh, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
