Utilities are deploying an increasingly wide array of systems for the smart grid, each with its own unique communication needs. No single communication technology is capable of meeting these needs in a cost-effective manner. IntelliCom products, in combination with SpeedNet Radios, offer a versatile hybrid communication network architecture that can meet the requirements and is "future proof."

The new product line features IntelliCom™ WAN, a wireless high-speed wide-area networking router that combines ultra-high throughput-up to 400 Mbps-with extremely low latencies of less than one millisecond. IntelliCom WAN features 802.11n mesh radio architecture for maximum grid reliability, with multiband operation in the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz unlicensed bands as well as the 4.9-GHz municipal licensed band. This network architecture is self-forming and self-healing; communication is not inhibited by the loss of any single node. IntelliCom WAN offers FIPS 140-2 security compliance required by the U.S. Department of Defense for Homeland Security applications.

The IntelliCom family includes two additional products. IntelliCom™ LAN provides a wireless access point to high-speed wide-area networks such as IntelliCom WAN. IntelliCom™ CPE provides an interface to IntelliCom LAN for grid devices and mobile workforce access.
