One important function of our Secure Intelligent Energy Platform (SIEP), as a turnkey solution, is to provide hardware devices, such as Secured Intelligent Endpoint Devices (SIED) with embedded Secured Network Interface Card (SNIC), for the Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) Substation. These SIEDs include Smart Meters (AMR, AMI), Remote Connect-Disconnect, Sensors, Communication Aggregators, and Hubs.
What it is and what it does.
Smart Meters ? AMR, AMI
Meter such as AMR (Advanced Meter Reading) which is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from electric metering devices and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing. This advance mainly saves utility providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter. Another advantage is billing can be based on near real time consumption rather than on estimates based on previous or predicted consumption. This timely information coupled with analysis, can help both utility providers and customers better control the use and production of electric energy, gas usage, or water consumption.
AMI "raises the bar" with regard to traditional Automatic meter reading (AMR) in that it enables two-way communications with the meter. The network between the measurement devices and business systems allows collection and distribution of information to customers, suppliers, utility companies and service providers. By providing information to customers, the system assists a change in energy usage from their normal consumption patterns, either in response to changes in price or as incentives designed to encourage lower energy usage use at times of peak-demand periods or higher wholesale prices or during periods of low operational systems reliability.
Smart grid without a Smart Meter would not be possible. We consider the Smart Meters and the infrastructure around it which includes hardware, software, communications, customer associated systems and meter data management (MDM) software an essential part toward the evolution of the Utility industry. Through our ?Secured Network Interface Card (SNIC)? imbedded in all SIEDs including Smart Meters and sensors, and our security based software and management tools, we are able to create an impenetrable barrier against cyber-attacks.
