On-Ramp Signs Reseller Agreement for Smart Grid in UK, U.S.

On Tuesday, On-Ramp Wireless (San Diego, Calif., U.S.A.), a provider of networking and location tracking equipment, announced that it has signed an agreement with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (McLean, Va., U.S.A.), a provider of scientific, engineering, systems integration and technical services, to become a reseller and systems integrator of On-Ramp's Ultra-Link Processing wireless systems in North America and the UK.

Ultra Link Processing uses a small portion of the 2.4-gigahertz band, the same band used by Wi-Fi, to send low-powered data to utility centers up to 40 miles away.

As SAIC deploys Smart Grid as a Service (SGS) for utility customers, this agreement will enable the companies to offer complete system services for all aspects of the Grid, from Smart Meter/AMI to Distribution Automation and risk mitigation applications, according to On-Ramp.

SAIC delivers end-to-end Smart Grid services through power engineering, information technology (IT), communications, data analytics, and cybersecurity to power utilities, according to the company. SAIC helps its customers manage the entire IT infrastructure, and On-Ramp's Ultra Link Processing wireless platform will enable SAIC to deploy and manage large scale solutions at a lower cost of competing systems. SAIC will be utilizing the growing ecosystem of devices based on the ULP technology.

"The ability to remotely monitor devices across large geographic areas and challenging radio environments is a key requirement within the Smart Grid," said Mark Fronmuller, SAIC's Energy IT and Smart Grid operations manager. "Our combined offering will help address coverage and capacity challenges that are common with Smart Grid installations."
