Cleveland, N.C., January 26, 2012 — The city of Lebanon, Ohio has selected Mueller Systems, a provider of metering systems for water, electric and gas systems, to upgrade its combined water and electric infrastructure with an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network.
Mueller Systems will provide Lebanon with the Mi.Net Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities — an advanced two-way AMI network that will link more than 9,000 electric and 7,000 water service connections located within the combined utility's service area.
The Mi.Net System enables utilities to improve operational efficiencies and customer service by fully automating the meter reading-to-billing process and linking meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network.
Mueller Systems offers a full line of residential, fire line and commercial meters, AMI and automatic meter reading (AMR) systems and related products that optimize the delivery and use of water and energy.
Benefits provided by The Mi.Net System include on-demand meter readings, e-mail alerts and alarms based upon near real-time information as well as the ability for utilities to better manage their water and electric resources through on-going access to custom data and information. A recent enhancement to The Mi.Net System is Mi.Data — a web-based portal that enables municipalities to strengthen relationships with consumers by providing a consolidated view of water and electricity usage online.
