Arcadian Deploys 700 MHz Wireless Network with Freewave

Arcadian Networks, a wireless communications carrier serving energy companies with dispersed assets (electric, gas and water utilities, and oil and gas companies), announced the delivery of its new 700 MHz wireless radio to serve the energy industry. The announcement comes just six months after the two companies announced a joint strategic partnership back in March of this year. The service uses 700 MHz radios from FreeWave Technologies.

The companies said the new network provides an opportunity for electric utilities and oil and gas companies to incorporate an advanced ISM band radio technology and wireless data solutions on a 700 MHz private, licensed and secure communication platform as a single, seamless and integrated "Smart Grid" or "Smart Field" solution. Arcadian Networks and FreeWave will each market, sell and distribute FreeWave's 700 MHz radio providing electric utilities and oil and gas companies' greater equipment diversity and flexible bandwidth and deployment options. http://www.freewave.com
