Increasing amounts of data, interconnected utility infrastructures, regulation and a general awareness of security and privacy issues raise the pressure also on smart metering security. E360 is our response to the most stringent security requirements.
Landis+Gyr will deliver an end-to-end smart metering solution to Olofström Kraft in Sweden. The second-generation technology utilizes NB-IoT for communication and is provided with our Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
The new E570 is designed for high-consumption residential and commercial use in low and medium voltage applications. And our answer to the new requirements for smart metering and communications.
Communication technology is a key consideration when choosing a smart metering solution. What are the pros and cons of RF-mesh, PLC or Point-to-Point technologies in our case? Should we go for integrated or modular technology in the meter? Until now, the utility customers had to choose and commit to one of the alternatives. With the introduction of the E360, Landis+Gyr is changing the game.
The world of telecommunication is changing rapidly – and the energy industry is very much affected by it. A significant part of the installed base of industrial electricity meters relies on connectivity services provided by telecommunication providers. And when these services change, we need to react, not only to stay connected, but also to fully utilize the benefits for new use cases and applications latest technology provides.
Landis+Gyr’s communication portfolio for the industrial, commercial and grid meters (ICG) further extended in the end of 2018 as the company released two new communication modules. With this extension, utility customers can easily upgrade their existing meter portfolio to communicate with LTE or latest Ethernet technology.
