The TeleOS product family is a set of point-to-multipoint (PTMP) radios targeted at the US and Canadian markets, operating in the license-free 902-928 MHz ISM band and optionally in the adjacent 928-260 MHz MAS band. TeleOS radios provide power-efficient SCADA communications with integrated I/O capabilities. Using TeleOS, industrial customers, electric utilities and upstream oil and gas companies can implement wireless communications to remote locations (plants, substations or off-grid well pads), reducing capital and operational expenses, helping maximize oil production efficiency, and enhancing environmental and worker safety.
Providing higher-bandwidth wireless communications to dispersed remote locations had been challenging because the power consumption of traditional broadband networking equipment has exceeded the capacity of local generation facilities such as solar panels with batteries and thermoelectric generators. Operators face the dilemma of either funding an expensive expansion of local generation capabilities for modern wireless communications, or using narrowband PTMP radios systems that lack the reliability, security and performance required to support contemporary applications.
Power efficient TeleOS products bridge the gap, offering 10 to 50 times higher throughput than traditional narrowband radios, yet the cost of powering a TeleOS radio is less than half the cost of powering a broadband radio. With higher throughput than narrowband SCADA radios, TeleOS enables more frequent polling of measurement from automation devices, resulting in higher resolution data and enhanced decision-making capabilities. IP support and enterprise-class security enable TeleOS networks to be integrated with corporate IT networks, supporting faster business decision making and implementation.
TeleOS radios include one or two 10/100BASE-T wired interfaces to provide connectivity for state-of-the-art equipment. The units’ serial interfaces as well as their optional analog and digital input/output (I/O) capabilities support direct connections to sensor equipment. These communication capabilities support vital activities such as electric distribution, water treatment and injection, as well as emergency shutdown (ESD) procedures.
The TeleOS point-to-multipoint architecture can be implemented together with the TropOS broadband mesh products, both technologies managed by the Supros network management system. Featuring an intuitive web-based interface. Supros is a powerful, standards-compliant network management system that enhances the efficiency of IT personnel by simplifying complex tasks such as wireless mesh network performance analysis and system optimization.
