Wireless Industrial-Class Tank-Level Monitoring System Now AvailableMay 25, 2006
Millennial Net's solution provides asset optimization for chemical, oil, gas, and environmental industries.
BURLINGTON, Mass. /PRNewswire/ -- Millennial Net, Inc., announced the release of its new tank-level monitoring solution based on its proven MeshScape 5424 family of 2.4 GHz wireless mesh and enterprise software, modules, and gateways. The solution is suited to increase asset health or improve asset optimization by monitoring remote tanks to improve operational efficiency. This extends Millennial Net's flagship MeshScape wireless mesh networking system to provide a vertically integrated product targeted for the chemical, oil, gas, and environmental industries.
The new solution is "first" to provide a critical end-to-end optimized application that can cost effectively be scaled to integrate tank-level and other application data from as few as two to three tanks to more than 100 tanks leveraging commercially available sensors. Enterprise integration is achieved via industry-standard interfaces, including ODBC or OPC. Reliability of the solution is ensured via Millennial Net's deployment proven MeshScape system. This system has been used extensively in large-scale, industrial-class wireless networks, scaling to hundreds of nodes and demonstrating industry leading power efficiency, robustness, reliability, and dynamic routing performance.
"The new tank-level monitoring solution is a direct response to our customers," explained Martin Hanssmann, vice president, sales and marketing at Millennial Net. "Having proven the benefits of wireless mesh network technology in early pilots, users want to move to volume deployments with an industrial-strength product that focuses on ease of deployment, maintainability, and low COO."
Unlike other solutions that employ point-to-point or one-to-many network topologies, Millennial Net provides an industrial solution that fully leverages the reliability and scalability benefits of a mesh network topology.
