Empowering Users to Make Smarter Power Choices
To realize the vision of AMI infrastructure, the smart meter must:
- Communicate with other intelligent appliances inside the residence or enterprise. The strategy for providing this communication path varies from country to country and in some cases region to region. Zigbee has gained significant adoption in early trials. However, both Wi-Fi and HomePlug offer benefits for certain deployments.
- Communicate information securely across the network to preserve sensitive user information.
- Incorporate enough latent horsepower to enable the delivery of future services without the need for a truck roll.
