SCADA Telemetry Radios

SCADA Telemetry data is typically transmitted over a variety of communication methods including analog/digital two-way radio, dial-up modem, point-to-point microwave, 3G/4G public or private cell networks, and Ethernet.

Radios and RTUs make a powerful combination for data transmission over long distances, over and around terrain and natural or manmade obstructions such as mountains/woodlands, or buildings respectively. Radios last a long time and do not incur ongoing operating expenses that other data transmission methods do. Therefore, if radios are suited for the SCADA application, then they the preferred choice.
