During the rollout of smart metering systems in Germany and Europe, a large number of devices with communication via 2G/3G/4G networks are installed in the field. These gateways are usually installed next to the electricity meter, i.e. in the basement. Unfortunately, cellular reception is usually poor there, but a stable network connection is needed because meter reading is to take place via this connection. In addition, smart grid functions are to be implemented in the future via the so-called smart meter gateways.
With our LTE network tester, you can quickly and easily check which providers are available, how good the network coverage is and where the antenna can be placed.
