Empower Your Utility to Meet Escalating Demands
Utility companies are feeling the heat of another set of challenges. Energy provisioning is being consumerized as customers embrace green technologies, from solar panels to electric cars. Beyond renewables, customers are so comfortable with the online experience, they can switch energy providers with a click. That’s why mission critical communications are imperative. Reliable, resilient and secure, an ASTRO ® 25 radio network handles the full scope of daily operations and unimaginable disasters. It empowers utilities with greater safety and efficiency, while delivering the continuity of service their customers expect.
From the wastewater plant to the power line, at the office or the substation, we help utility companies work more efficiently, productively and safely in the most difficult conditions and demanding environments. Our solutions connect different personnel, facilities and equipment together to help your operation run more efficiently and safely, control infrastructure, and reduce risks and costs.
