Parker Water & Sanitation Taps into Wireless Data Transmission
1/17/2013 - It probably takes less time to drive across
Parker–—a 14-square-mile commuter town at the southeastern corner of the Denver
metropolitan area–—than it used to take for the Water and Sanitation District to
communicate by radio. Although until recently, the town had a communications
system in place, there was a 10-minute delay in data transmission and the radios
it used were incompatible with each other.
On January 16, Boulder-based FreeWave Technologies, a manufacturer of
high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data
transmission, announced that–—together with its technology solution partner
Process Control Dynamics, Inc. of Centennial–—it had installed
wireless data radios for Parker Water and Sanitation District’s
communication network. The radios provide real-time monitoring and transmission
of critical data at the town’s water and wastewater facilities, including tank
levels, temperatures, pressures, and pump control.
