NB-IoT in AMI: What Does the New Communication Technology Bring to Smart Metering?
In Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and smart grid architecture, communication technology is a key consideration. It plays an important role in the solution performance and has a major impact on the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the overall solution.
Today, the speed of communication technology development is faster than ever, opening up attractive new opportunities.
While Landis+Gyr EMEA supports and develops multiple communication technologies in its smart metering and smart grid portfolio, we wish to introduce the latest emerging technologies in the AMI sector more in detail. With this white paper, we aim to provide further insight into NB-IoT (CAT-NB1 and later also CAT-NB2) and LTE-M (CAT-M1).
