Secure Communications Layer Products

Secure Communication Layer: Through our strategic acquisitions, we have created a revolutionary wireless broadband infrastructure platform that addresses the challenges that have made our competitors solutions ineffective and expensive to deploy. Our platform takes advantage of the proprietary RF protocols and routing algorithms we have developed that enable our customers to cost effectively deploy a reliable carrier grade two-way communications infrastructure. This platform also allows our customers to take advantage interference free, pristine RF frequencies without the expense of a license.  This combination of proprietary protocols and unique RF capabilities makes this infrastructure more secure than anything available on the market today. This platform also includes a secure, long range, ?Middle-Mile? backhaul solution that provides the first truly complete end-to-end solution from a single vendor.

Our products are a natural enhancement to the current initiatives and federal mandates set forth to deploy intelligent devices within the power grid. Our products are uniquely designed to address and solve the primary challenges utility operators face in their task to update and secure our electrical grids.

Grid Mesh ? Infrax?s revolutionary wireless smart meter mesh platform. Grid Mesh solves what has been the biggest challenge faced by utilities, connecting each home to the Smart Grid in an efficient, scaleable, and secure way. By utilizing our proprietary wireless system that enables each ?Smart Meter? to interconnect with one another creating a large meshed network. Our Multi-hop mesh technology (where each node can communicate with any other node) has proven to be both reliable and redundant. Of equal importance is that it can be easily scaled to include millions of end points (whether that be a smart meters, thermostats, or sensors). Further, Grid Mesh can be installed very quickly and the network does not require sophisticated planning and site mapping to achieve reliability. The advantage of our Grid Mesh is that scalability is easily achieved.

Some of the key differentiators of our Grid Mesh System:

  • Efficient - Pristine Dedicated RF Spectrum ? The Grid Mesh protocol uses the frequencies set aside by the FCC for Packet Radio Services. In comparison to our competitor?s platforms that use Wi-Fi or GPRS, our Grid Mesh platform has numerous advantages. This is indeed a game changer.
  • Secure ? By using our proprietary communications protocols on top of our 1024 bit hardware encryption, our Grid Mesh platform is exponentially more secure that those of our competitors.
  • Scalable -Multi-hop mesh technology = Scalable -can be easily scaled to include millions of end points (smart meters, thermostats, or sensors).
  • Complete ? By combining our Grid Mesh system with our proven wireless broadband infrastructure platform, we can provide our customers with the first truly complete ?end-to-end? smart grid communications platform that meet their requirements.

Grid Mesh Details:

  • High interference immunity - Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS) One of the most important features of GridMesh is the use of Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS) which allows different systems and system operators to utilize the same group of available channels without prior distribution of channels to specific services or bases stations.
  • Greater Spectral Efficiency Grid Mesh utilizes more than double the amount of channels available for WiFi.
  • Greater Receiver Sensitivity ? Provides Grid Mesh enabled end points greater range and reduces the density and cost of the infrastructure.
  • Self-configuring ? Our Grid Mesh technology allows for new endpoints to be added very efficiently helping reduce the operational expenses.
  • Self Healing = Multiple redundant communications paths throughout the network
  • Low Latency ? Our Grid Mesh technology utilizes a TDM based protocol that reduces latency.
  • Low cost End Points ? Our Grid Mesh technology is less expensive than our competitors.
  • Proprietary RF Protocol using an air-interface technology based on time division multiple access (TDMA) and time division duplex (TDD) on multiple RF carriers. On each carrier the TDMA structure defines multiple time slots in a 10 ms frame, where each time slot may be used to transmit one self contained packet of data. One of the most important features of GridMesh is the use of Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS) which allows different systems and system operators to utilize the same group of available channels without prior distribution of channels to specific services or bases stations.
  • Integrated Backhaul ? Infrax Networks has a proven set of wireless broadband products that ideal for connecting the Grid Mesh networks back to the power substations. These multi-radio, multi-protocol wireless broadband base stations have the unique ability to adapt to the specific environments in which they are deployed. The ability to utilize different modular radios to suit the particular deployment within the network gives them the flexibility to overcome a wide array of obstacles. This proven backhaul platform is the result of 25+ years of development and has been successfully deployed in many diverse applications on 6 continents. This platform can provide the necessary ?Middle-Mile? backhaul that connects the Grid Mesh back to the utility?s fiber infrastructure. The very same platform can also be configured to provide redundancy to the utilities fiber infrastructure.
