Efficient data reading with superior security, creates new business opportunities and reduce ROI.
Smart meters are part of the Advanced Measuring Infrastructure (AMI) which serves power utilities networks and is a key instrument in any Smart Grid deployment. It is designed as a two way communication in order to connect with the central system, sending measurements on preconfigured time intervals, receiving information and as a result increasing the network efficiency.
Managing the connectivity for smart meters is a challenging task, as the deployment of such a network comes with a large number of devices which means that changing the configuration or replacing the connectivity provider (SIM card) can become quite a costly operation. Additionally companies need to have the ability to enforce connectivity and security policies from time to time, keeping a high degree of security level protecting their data. As AMI is promoted by regulation as 202020 in the EU, It is becoming one of the main avenues for the lower area of the Grid, especially the distribution segment, where the majority of the losses are occuring. As such – securing the billing, the efficiency and reducing carbon emission through this – is very much connected with the AMI install base. Thus, securing connectivity, and having it always on, becomes crucial to any utility, smart city project.
