Utilities face increasing operational complexity and pressure to use existing sources of grid intelligence. They must maximize their knowledge of all network levels. Advanced metering infrastructures (AMIs) give them the ability to get and analyze meter data from the network endpoints. This empowers utilities to run innovative demand management programs and engage customers in a more efficient use of electricity.
A complete, integrated solution
EcoStruxure™ Advanced Metering Operation (formerly known as Titanium: Advanced Metering Management) is a complete set of metering solutions specifically designed to deliver all metering requirements that a smart utility may need:
- Deployment: Plan, schedule, and follow up to minimize stock-in-progress, optimize the work force, and guarantee successful deployment.
- Maintenance: Smart analysis tools and ticketing capabilities interfaced with work order management systems.
- Operation: Advanced ad-hoc tools to gather smart metering information on a reliable scheduled basis, and to operate remotely, thus improving the cash-to-meter process.
The most advanced services: Analysis of existing metering processes to accommodate new technologies, follow up of infrastructure deployment and daily operation, and maintenance to guarantee the delivery of metering critical information.
The most advanced tools: Supporting the delivery of smart metering services, making the most of the current information technologies to provide a set of advanced tools that guarantee reliable AMI deployment and operations encompassing smart metering operation technologies in just one solution.
Cutting-edge technologies: Using the most advanced IT technologies to provide a fully cloud-based virtualized architecture, easily expanded from hundreds of thousands to more than 13 million devices.
Cyber security: Following the most demanding cyber security principles, privacy of information is a key factor, encrypting any single piece of information, including meter reads, security access keys, or certificates.
Reliable operation: Performance to the highest and most demanding service level agreements for delivery of metering information. The perfect match between the most advanced and reliable operational technologies and information technologies.
