The Trilliant SecureMesh NAN uses a 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) radio frequency (RF) mesh network to gather data and communicate controls to AMI meters and other sensors on the distribution grid. Trilliant SecureMesh endpoints utilize neighboring endpoints to reach Collectors that are optimally located throughout the AMI deployed area. Another feature of Trilliant SecureMesh NAN is the ability to adapt to different network conditions, increasing the range of the endpoints by adjusting the transmission from 50 kilobytes per second (kbps) to 2.4 megabytes per second (Mbps).
Trilliant SecureMesh WAN can be used to link the Collectors to common backhaul takeout points, or each can be independently connected to any IP-based backhaul – Cellular LTE, Fiber, etc.
Like Trilliant SecureMesh WAN, Trilliant SecureMesh NAN uses an adaptive mesh configuration. If an endpoint loses connection with its neighbor, it will find alternative routes, referred to as self-healing as it creates these alternative routes autonomously.
