Creating tailor-made toughness for a global wireless technology leader
Phoenix Mecano’s customer, On-Ramp Wireless (Ingenu), is the global leader in wide-area machine-to-machine connectivity. Only the On-Ramp Network has the range, capacity, and security to address the growing demand for smart grid, remote monitoring, wide area sensing, and other M2M applications. On-Ramp Wireless needed an enclosure to provide the “access point” for data transmission from endpoint nodes via RF modems. The customer hired a design-engineering consultancy agency located in Calgary, AB, Canada to assist with the application design. The agency explained the need for an outdoor enclosure to be pole-mounted, and capable of withstanding harsh environments with fluctuating temperatures. It also had to meet NEMA 4/IP66 and be safe for operators and technicians to work on in the field.
