There is no one size fits all: Learnings from smart meter rollout projects across Europe

Determining the right kind of a smart metering solution is a crucial strategic decision for a utility in the initial stage of a smart meter project planning. The number of available devices, software and communication technologies as well as potential partners is huge, as is the spectrum between the two extremes – namely the component and the turn-key solution. Utility customers can buy all the components for their smart metering solution separately and manage the rollout and the software integration themselves, or they can opt for a turn-key solution and, for instance, rely on a subcontractor to manage the project in its entirety.

IPv6 The key communication enabler for the Internet of Things

Internet Protocol Version 6 or IPv6 is an Internet addressing system developed by the Internet Engineering Taskforce (IETF) to replace the IPv4 protocol. Development was primarily driven by address exhaustion, but in addition to offering a vastly increased number of unique addresses (an IPv6 address is 128 bits long, which allows for a total of approximately 3.4×1038 different addresses) there are a number of other important advantages, particularly in the field of utilities infrastructure.
