General Description

Vertexcom G3-PLC + RF / Wi-SUN RF + PLC Dual Mode is a dual mode PLC-networked processor with the integration of high-performance sub-1GHz RF Transceiver. Vertexcom Dual Mode supports multiple modern narrowband and broadband PLC standards for smart grids and other IIoT applications. In the meantime, the dual mode (PLC + RF) hardware has combined the advantages of both wireline and wireless connectivity. By keeping the mesh networking capability of underlying PLC links, Vertexcom Dual Mode can automatically select the alternative wireless link hop-by-hop when the wireline link turns too weak. This dual-mode networking technology provides the most effective solution to coverage and reliability difficulties encountered in the real-world environment.
