Smart Metering

Smart Solutions Beyond Metering

Smart metering and smart grid systems have been devised at the end of the 20th century to allow for better control of the grid, better knowledge about utilities distribution from the core to the endpoints, and automation of provisioning and maintenance processes. Continuous communication capabilities and the need for intelligent monetization and demand management for utilities were not on the agenda in early smart grid concepts, and still are not supported well by numerous national regulators.

We believe that the capabilities and challenges of today and tomorrow require a monetization component and subsystem that is backed by experience in the billing and payment as well as in the utility industries.
