Itron Network Technology Among First to Receive Wi-SUN FAN Certification
Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and
cities manage energy and water, announced today the Itron Bridge 5-WS is
one of the first products to receive Wi-SUN
Field Area Network (FAN) 1.0 certification. The Wi-SUN Alliance
granted certification to products based on their compliance to the FAN
communications profile and their ability to interoperate with other
Wi-SUN FAN certified products, as verified by an independent third-party
testing laboratory. This important industry milestone is the result of
several years of intense collaboration between many technology suppliers
that include leadership by Itron.
In the same way the Internet is accessible to many different makes and
models of smartphones and computers, the Wi-SUN FAN 1.0 standard enables
different industial devices to interconnect onto common, secure,
industrial-grade networks. The certification of the Itron device, with
integrated Gen5 NIC (News - Alert) hardware, indicates the Itron Network platform is
capable of supporting the Wi-SUN FAN 1.0 specification. This NIC can be
used in many different devices in an industrial IoT network.
"Itron along with other key Promoter members of the Wi-SUN Alliance
including our long-time strategic partner Cisco (News - Alert) have demonstrated our
commitment to the development and evolution of this standard technology
to create a truly interoperable open network ecosystem," said Sharelynn
Moore, senior vice president of Networked Solutions at Itron. "We are
pleased to be among the first to achieve this initial certification."
"Certification ensures interoperability, which is key to the growth of
IoT innovation," said Phil Beecher, president and CEO of the Wi-SUN
Alliance. "We are pleased to officially certify this product."
