Smart meter rollouts are unique projects that present utilities with a different set of challenges and complexities, compared with day-to-day operations. One that is well-planned and well-executed can save on time, cost and resources.
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.
Artificial Intelligence is no longer Science Fiction! Even though the type that actually mimics human behavior is still quite far away – at least for the time being – we have been surrounded by so-called “narrow AI” for a while. Narrow AI handles a single task type or a domain-specific problem and here we have passed a tipping point. What has become possible with data capture, storage and processing has put AI on steroids!
