E.On chose Ericsson to provide a hosted solution including consulting and systems integration services, harnessing big data and smart grid solutions for its customers.
Ericsson's solution will gather data from energy meters and provide collected data to E.On's internal IT environment. Data will be exported daily rather than monthly, increasing data delivery by 3,000 percent.
Ericsson will also provide E.On with related field services. The agreement stretches over the next five years, and includes more than 600,000 metering points in northern Stockholm, Malmoe, Oerebro, as well as Norrkoeping and Skane.
The Ericsson Smart Metering solution, provided as a service, combines managed services, consulting and systems integration services and includes meter reading and control, meter management, meter monitoring, service layer agreement management, work force management, asset management, business process management, as well as field services and an operations center.
