Large AMI deployment contract signed

Colorado Springs Utilities has signed a multi-year agreement with Cellnet Technology Inc., provider of real-time fixed network and AMI solutions to the utility industry. Cellnet will provide its InfiNet AMI solution, turnkey delivery and project management services for all 500,000 electricity, gas and water customers in the utility’s service territory.

Deployment of the meter end points will be spread over five years. Springs Utilities will own the communications infrastructure and metering points, with Cellnet operating the system under a managed service model through project deployment, with an option for Springs Utilities to eventually assume full system management.
