Kannapolis, N.C. to install Mueller Systems advanced metering infrastructure (AMI)

The city of Kannapolis, North Carolina will upgrade its water system with Mueller Systems' advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network. Mueller Systems is a provider of innovative water infrastructure products and services and metering systems for water and electric systems.

Kannapolis will implement the Mi.Net Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities—Mueller Systems' two-way AMI network. The Mi.Net System will automate the city's meter reading-to-billing process by linking its meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network.

In addition to the Mi.Net System, the city is scheduled to install about 18,000 Mueller Systems water meters throughout the city by the end of 2014. A portion of the residential meters will be Mueller Systems' 420 Remote Disconnect Meter (RDM), a fully integrated remote disconnect meter designed to enable the city to remotely manage water services through the Mi.Net System.

The city will also offer its constituents tools to manage their water consumption by implementing Mi.Data, Mueller Systems' consumer portal that provides information about water usage and improved communication between households and the city.

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. The Mi.Net System features 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 resources through on-going access to custom data and information.
