Sylacauga Utilities Board


Sylacauga Utilities Board deployed wireless broadband to provide SCADA for their operations, and leverages the network to provide connectivity and emergency services to rural customers.

For the past four years, the Sylacauga Utilities Board has seen its reliance on Cambium wireless broadband products increase, not only in terms of numbers of nodes but also in applications over the network. The network, which had its beginnings in rural connectivity applications, now includes Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), and 9-1-1 non-emergency data backhaul. Future plans include incorporating Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) applications.
