With the advancement of technology and introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT), the role of Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) and Smart Grid solutions in utilities is changing. Current requirements call for more advanced connectivity, as the solution must serve a large number of interconnected systems and devices communicating with one another. This raises the bar for standardization, bandwidth, and flexibility, not to mention IT security and privacy.
Landis+Gyr’s approach to the opportunities and challenges created by digitalization and IoT focuses both on short-term needs and long-term desires.
Creating an Ecosystem for Utility IoT Software
Centralized cloud data as an asset - A centralized, cloud-based data repository brings together millions of connected intelligent endpoints, enabling value creation through data-based analysis, planning and diagnostics.
Open platform brings together utility IoT applications - The open architecture and robust application programming interfaces (APIs) of the software platform enable development and integration of Landis+Gyr and third-party applications, enabling to harness the rich data asset into valuable insights.
Flexible connectivity layer extends to future needs - The connectivity layer of the platform and the standards-based device software development kit (SDK) allow introduction of new intelligent endpoints and connectivity protocols. Secured by the in-built modularity, the layer can easily be optimized for utility needs.
A new tool for network management and monitoring - The first step in the development of the IoT software platform is the introduction of an efficient application for managing and monitoring the intelligent nodes and endpoints in the utility network.
Another transition is underway in utility technology, and Landis+Gyr is again leading the way. We have some exciting news to share that will provide more choice for your communication technologies and vendors, more intelligence to devices in the field and more applications for automating energy management programs.
