We are in the process of designing communications products for different applications. These prototypes are in different stages of development, the applications we are working on are:
In its final development and testing phases, the Umbane will soon be released to the electrical metering utility market. Energy management in South Africa is in dire need of reliable, efficient bi-directional communications. Electrical meters in the future will all be linked up to a centralised processing centre that can manage the meters and allow clients to pre pay for their electricity.
The Vixnet technology in the Umbane will give it the leading edge in the market due to its signal penetration through basements and difficult RF areas, and will also transmit real time live meter tampering.
