Mobile Data Solution Developed for Finnish AMR Market

228

Enermet, supplier of energy metering and load management solutions, and Elisa, an IT company offering solutions for fixed and mobile networks based in Finland, have developed a mobile data solution suitable for automatic meter reading (AMR). This solution allows cost-efficient transfer of energy metering data over the GPRS network throughout Finland.

GPRS provides a secure online connection between the meter and the meter reading system – the metering site can always be reached without installing a separate connection. The data connection can be set up and protected using common TCP/IP-based tools, and the end result is a secure virtual private network dedicated to meter reading, in which disturbances and data security risks have been minimised.
