Elster Deploys Advanced Metering Infrastructure Solutions

Dec 20, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Elster announced that it is expanding its deployment of advanced metering infrastructure solutions, leveraging cellular point-to-point communications to enable customer support for electric vehicles.

According to a release, Elster's EnergyAxis system enables mesh and cellular point-to-point capabilities in a single head-end system, allowing utilities to manage endpoints in one solution.

The point-to-point solution uses the same head-end system and operates in parallel with other communication technologies which support applications such as remote meter reading, load control, asset monitoring, loss and theft detection, outage management, dynamic pricing, conservation voltage monitoring, and remote on and off services.

"Our goal is to deliver a comprehensive communication platform that enables multiple smart grid applications," said Ed Myzska, President, Elster Solutions. "As an AMI solution, EnergyAxis can further enable the inclusion of Smart Grid-based capabilities like EV communications for large utilities in advance of full-scale network deployments." Elster is an electricity, gas and water measurement and control provider.
