OMNIMETRIX, An Acorn Energy Company, Provides Fail-Safe Solution For Critical Infrastructure During Hurricane Sandy

BUFORD, Ga., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OMNIMETRIX, LLC, an Acorn Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACFN) company which monitors thousands of generators all over the world, provided critical information and visibility into their customers' generators to ensure continued operations throughout Hurricane Sandy's landfall. OMNIMETRIX customers are operators of critical infrastructure like emergency first responders, mass transit systems, hospitals, utilities and cell towers.  "In times of natural disaster back-up power becomes essential.  Ensuring that back-up power works when called upon is the mission of our dedicated team of professionals.  With millions of people without power as the result of Hurricane Sandy we pray for the rapid restoration of power and essential services," said Deena Redding, President of OMNIMETRIX, LLC.

In the first few weeks of the fourth quarter OMNIMETRIX has received orders for over 500 of its industry leading G8500 generator monitoring devices for immediate installation. These devices will be deployed by wireless cell tower owners throughout the US.  The OMNIMETRIX device monitors hundreds of data points of a generator's current and historic performance.  There are over 220,000 cell towers in the US and to date only 40% or less have on-site back-up generators.  A growing percentage of cell tower operators use remote monitoring to ensure the reliability of their networks. The explosion in growth in the general population whose only access to emergency 911 is through a cell phone, up to 34%, is a major driver behind the need for improved cell site reliability. 

The Cell Tower Industry Association (CTIA) published a report that wireless data grew 123% in 2011 with the number of active smart phones up 43% to over 111 million units.  In order to handle the massive demand for wireless data, U.S. mobile carriers are continuing to invest in their networks through 4G upgrades and increased coverage and capacity with more cell sites.
