At DockOn, we are absolutely dedicated to making your wireless product development faster, leaner, and more effective.
San Diego, California (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
DockOn®, an innovative wireless technology startup, today announced that a leading smart water solutions company tripled its smart meter wireless range utilizing DockOn’s CPL Antennas and expert antenna design services.
Smart water meter manufacturers face challenging environments to create innovative, efficient wireless devices. In North America, most water meters reside underground in metal, concrete, or plastic boxes, effectively mitigating wireless range. Plus, these “water pits” average 90 to 100% humidity, making it difficult to create battery powered wireless devices meeting an expected 20 year life.
By partnering with DockOn, the water solutions firm overcame typical water meter design obstacles and created a breakthrough wireless device. DockOn played an integral part of the customer’s product design team, from initial discovery, to physical prototyping and testing. This partnership led to a +8dB link budget improvement over the existing OEM antenna solution, nearly tripling the device’s wireless range. These extra dB’s can result in better battery life, smaller batteries, greater range, or reduced infrastructure.
The firm maximized its wireless device performance by choosing DockOn’s innovative CPL antennas, the industry’s best-in-class antenna technology. CPL Antennas offer a true innovation in antenna science and technology by combining a loop and monopole antenna. This means dramatically more efficient and cost effective antennas for wireless devices like smart water meters.
“DockOn is more than an antenna company, we are an extension of our customer’s product design and engineering departments and are there to support our customers in anyway possible,” says Gregory Poilasne, CEO, DockOn. “At DockOn, we are absolutely dedicated to making your wireless product development faster, leaner, and more effective.”
