Sensus partners with Ecologic Analytics on smart meter solutions

Raleigh, N.C., August 23, 2011 — Sensus is partnering with leading meter data management system provider Ecologic Analytics to provide a pre-validated, pre-integrated communications solution for electricity customers using the Sensus FlexNet advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system.

Providing end-to-end solutions requires interoperability. The Sensus FlexNet and Ecologic MDMS solution is based on the IEC 61968 Part 9 interface, the interoperability standard to provide a common interface model gateway for meter reading and control data to be exchanged between the Sensus radio network interface head end system and the Ecologic MDMS application.

Using this standards-based approach to pre-integrate and test the systems is a fundamental principle for the strategic alliance between Sensus and Ecologic Analytics. The pre-integration and testing work eliminates time spent in the field building ad-hoc interfaces that extend the duration of the project.

Both companies see the new partnership as a solid pathway to expand nationally and globally in large-scale deployments for multi-service utilities providing electric, water and gas. The pre-integrated Ecologic MDMS to RNI solution for electric meter data is now generally available with water and natural gas meter data becoming available in Q4 2011.
