AMI P2MP

The Grid IQ AMI P2MP Solution is a wireless network built from the ground up for utility grid monitoring and sensing, delivering a portfolio of sensing solutions across multiple grid applications with world class geographic coverage.

Whether deployed in large metropolitan areas, sparse rural areas or anything in between, the Grid IQ AMI P2MP Solution provides Utilities with thousands of square miles of robust, reliable wireless coverage, with minimal network infrastructure. In addition, the P2MP Solution has the ability to service multiple applications including Smart Metering, Distribution Monitoring, battery-powered applications requiring long life, as well as below ground and in-building assets.

 
Key Benefits
  • Broad territory coverage - low total network infrastructure due to exceptionally long range and high capacity to support rural to urban deployment, in a simple, elegant point-to-multipoint topology.
  • Scalable Device Capacity – Access Points can support up to 20,000 devices, with the ability to handle thousands of concurrent connections for better outage response and higher reliability for proactive event notification.
  • Below ground and in-building asset coverage – complete coverage of grid assets in subterranean environments.
  • Security by Design– NIST approved through 2030 and FIPS 140-2 compliant devices to protect the utility, network and consumer information.

    The Grid IQ AMI P2MP Solution is a Point-to-Multipoint or RF "Star" architecture with numerous coverage and throughput benefits ideal for the RF propagation environments from rural to urban. Further, the network is more than an AMI solution. It is built to support various Grid Modernization applications beyond Smart Metering.

    Remote "Endpoint" devices, such as utility smart meters or fault indicators, communicate directly with the "Access Points" deployed either on towers or utility poles allowing for flexible low cost deployments. A network of Access Points can provide redundant coverage for a wide area, such as a city or a county and has industry leading range enabling ubiquitous coverage. The Access Point is designed for indoor or outdoor operation and can be easily deployed on buildings, utility poles or communication towers enabling low cost pervasive coverage in the most challenging environments.

    The Smart Meter Operating System (SMOS) provides visibility to data retrieved from network management services. SMOS also provides the back-office integration functions that deliver data from across the network to core operational systems, such as Outage Management Systems and other applications. SMOS supports various industry standard interfaces and protocols.

    The Grid IQ AMI P2MP Solution has exceptional coverage and supports multiple applications on the same network. This single network features pervasive coverage for metering and distribution grid monitoring and sensing regardless of whether the devices are battery operated or powered. Each access point in the system supports thousands of connected devices providing unicast, downlink multicast and broadcast capabilities and supports group configuration and control. The ability to leverage a common network infrastructure for multiple applications provides immediate and significant ROI.
























    Access Point The Grid IQ AMI P2MP Solution Access Point is the key network infrastructure component of Grid Modernization Infrastructure network. The AP provides wireless coverage for thousands of sensor endpoints delivering unmatched network scalability over vast geographic areas. The AP communicates in a simple star topology with endpoints in the coverage area. Multiple APs can be configured to provide extensive coverage. APs communicate with back-office systems using secure IP networking. On the back-end, the APs connect to the Gateway.

    I-210 ANSI or SGM3000 IEC Meter and MCM

    The Electric MCM is integrated with both the I210 ANSI and GE SGM3000 IEC Family of meters and provides:
    • Up to fifteen minute intervals and daily register reads, including precise event correlation across reads.
    • Two-way meter communication to support on demand reads, meter configuration, home area network (HAN) instruction updates, and remote meter disconnect.
    • Last gasp meter reporting for power outage.
    • Over the air updates of endpoint firmware.
    • End-to-end security designed for Grid Modernization applications to ensure meter to network authentication, message integrity and confidentiality, and secure firmware binary updates.
    • Added functionality for the electric, gas & water AMI and DA solution portfolio, further accelerating the return on the network investment.

    MDS™ WiYZ Remote

    MDS WiYZ Remotes are packed with features and functionality to match up with a diverse range of remote monitoring and control requirements. Each Remote accommodates 2 Analog Inputs, 2 Analog Outputs, 2 Digital Inputs and 2 Digital Outputs. One RS232 port is used for configuration. (Optional radio configuration to operate on the Grid Modernization Infrastructure network).
    • Configurable sample periods allow remotes to periodically sample sensor and I/O data, and transmit back to the gateway at specified intervals, conserving battery power and reducing network traffic.
    • Condition-based data transmission allows remote to transmit data only when there is a change of state for a Digital Input
    • I/O extension can be implemented to regenerate sensor and I/O signals between devices
