Wireless networks
Radio networks offer a far-reaching and cost-effective way of connecting physically disparate equipment, with the added ability to reach mobile devices. ABB offers a range of wireless technologies suited to any environment.

Using radio to achieve the robust connectivity demanded by the energy industry has, on occasion, proved an insurmountable challenge, but modern developments such as ABB’s Tropos mesh network combine ubiquitous coverage with full redundancy, all using unlicensed radio spectrum.

A self-forming mesh can balance loading between connections, and reroute traffic in the event of node failure, creating a network as robust as any cable and capable of reaching the farthest point of the most-remote operating site.
