This white paper from Sierra Wireless describes how consolidating connectivity over a vehicle area network (VAN) reduces high costs for utilities, while increasing field productivity. At the heart of a VAN architecture is a vehicle-based cellular gateway or router
that establishes a continuous, reliable and secure internet connection for field personnel, giving workers access to corporate applications and enabling two-way communication that keeps them productive. This white paper will be of interest to utility companies, technology developers and system integrators.
Key words: fleet management, utilities, energy management
