Announces Support for both the 450 MHz and 410-430 MHz Spectrums with the EN™ Series Industrial and Utilities Hardened Routers
Chantilly, VA – May 14, 2019
Encore Networks today announced its support for wireless LTE broadband networks, both private and public, for International markets addressing the unique network needs and security concerns of utilities and heavy industrial applications. Utilities, and oil and gas companies often need to build their own wireless networks. Encore works with them to build Private LTE networks for SCADA and Grid modernization.
Private LTE networks will enable utilities to own and manage their own communications networks without requiring them to share licensed commercial spectrum with other users. Private wireless broadband networks enable secure, reliable, low latency communications that facilitate a unified platform to support the evolving digital, distributed and intelligent power systems. Applications include electric operations, monitoring and control systems, distributed energy and storage, dynamic customer engagement, and mission critical
“Utilities and Industrial companies are looking for solutions that enable quick deployment of equipment into the field providing security and reliability. Private wireless broadband networks meet these requirements,” stated Peter Madsen, President and CEO of Encore Networks. “Encore’s industrially hardened routers enable utilities to deploy public carrier provided LTE services and then add Private LTE as they build out their private network preserving CAPEX and ensuring the highest ROI.”
Mr. Madsen continued, “our commitment to LTE in Europe with support for both the 450 and 410-430 spectrums is reinforced with Encore’s membership in the 450 Alliance.”
As a wireless industry association, the mission of the 450 Alliance is to promote the allocation of the 450 MHz spectrum worldwide, grow and facilitate coordination of the 450 MHz ecosystem and to maximize commercial benefits for all stakeholders. Members include wireless carriers providing public LTE 450 based services, equipment manufacturers, and companies representing various vertical markets for M2M communications including those that will build Private LTE networks.
