Itron Cellular Communications

Trilliant CellReader

CellReader products provide digital cellular communication solutions for commercial and industrial Sentinel meters.  Complex meter information is available any time, from anywhere, via these under-glass meter communication devices.  The CellReader is the ideal solution for remote interval and TOU data collection, including all necessary register, load profile and meter diagnostic data.

Using today’s digital cellular technology, CellReaders provide public network radio frequency (RF) communications with the benefit of the best available wireless network coverage and cost.

The CellReader uses the packet data transmission capabilities that are an integral part of today’s leading digital cellular (or PCS) networks.  As a result, these communications are faster, more reliable, and less expensive than traditional telephone or cellular modem calls.  CellReaders also support circuit switched (traditional modem) data communications where needed to maximize digital wireless coverage or enable direct access from phone-base software.

The CellReader operates on any public CMDA/1xRTT, GSM/GPRS, DataTAC or iDEN network, such as Verizon Wireless, Bell Mobility, Telus Mobility, Rogers Wireless, AT&T Wireless, T-Mobile, Cingular Wireless and Sprint PCS.

With the CellReader and the national footprints of the leading cellular providers, your most important meters are always on and always connected.

Please contact General Pacific’s metering department if you are interested in the external version that can connect with RS232 serial devices on your system including meters.
