With more than 25 years’ experience as a design house with focus on wireless communication, IMST has been also involved in the development of wireless technologies since the early stages.

One of the most successful examples is Wireless M-Bus. Designed to be a power efficient, robust, and suitable for long range wireless communication, Wireless M-Bus has been adopted by many Smart Metering suppliers.

To facilitate rapid troubleshooting and maintenance of your Wireless M-Bus network, IMST provides the so called Packet Analyzer PA-iM871A. This tool supports the monitoring and analysing or Wireless M-Bus traffic according to EN 13757-4 that specifies the communication between utility meters and data loggers, concentrators or smart meter gateways.

The graphical user interface allows long time packet capturing and packet visualization for many Wireless M-Bus configuration.

The analyzer supports single radio and dual radio modes for monitoring of uplink and downlink channels with different physical settings in parallel as well as several AES-128 decryption modes.
