Most smart grid communication network architectures are designed to handle a particular type of message. For example, meter reading mesh networks are designed to communicate short messages between residential meters and an access point.

This Whitepaper describes Origo’s proposed wide area star topology wireless network whose single network architecture is designed to support a large variety of message types. This allows one network to be shared between multiple communication purposes such as for small meter messages or large security image messages.

A key benefit of the network is its configurability and scalability. The network can be easily reconfigured over-the-air to support future upgrades and expansion.

This technology is also an ideal candidate for an "Internet of Things" (IoT) wide area communication network.
