Joint ISA-WWID & NEWEA Webinar about cellular telemetry on March 24, 2014 was a success

NEWEA_Logo_FINAL_Vertical_4C_Preferred_squareOn March 24, 2014 the ISA’s water and wastewater division (ISA WWID) in collaboration with the New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) hosted a webinar titled “Cellular Telemetry – Yet another Communication Option in Our Toolbox.”

The webinar speaker, Paul Birkel, is a Senior Vice President at Wright-Pierce in Portland, Maine. Paul’s presentation discussed the VHF radio to cellular upgrade of the 28-remote site telemetry system at Falmouth, Maine. He gave an overview of the issues Falmouth had with the original system, covered some of the alternatives that were considered for the new design, and also discussed some of the economic and technical aspects of the project.

The webinar got started shortly after 2pm (Eastern Time) once we got everyone online. We had over 75 attendees view the live event some of who attended the event in groups. Thanks to everyone who helped put this together, and to everyone who was able to attend.
