Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) deployed CalAmp technology to improve grid visibility, better manage distribution lines and enhance services for its customers as part of its grid modernization initiative. CalAmp's installed solution allows WPS to optimize and better manage heavy loads, isolate and mitigate effects from local outages and remotely control and obtain diagnostics from relays, fault detectors and reclosers.

"We're pleased to work with WPS to develop a solution that delivers an optimized, rugged and secure wireless network, resulting in more coverage with less equipment," said Mike Zachan, senior vice president and general manager of CalAmp's wireless networks business. "Part of a broad range of innovative narrowband products, Viper SC+ reflects CalAmp's continuing investment and leadership in technology development for the energy sector."

The Viper SC+ router enhances network security and quality of service (QoS) for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), distribution automation, outage management and other critical electrical, water wastewater, and oil and gas distribution applications, a statement said. The product integrates with CalAmp's cloud-based enterprise-grade remote management and control application as a solution for managing diverse, large-scale radio implementations.
