Abstract: Presented by Juan Andres Antoniuk Buchtik at Metering, Billing/CRM Latin America

There are currently several available alternatives to implement centralized metering systems where each one has its benefits and drawbacks depending on the environment.
There are common issues that should be considered such as own property communication infrastructure versus public networks, geographic area coverage and the fact that telecommunications technologies and services run in a considerable faster pace than electricity utilities.

This paper presents the Low Orbit Satellite Communication, a solution that has been largely adopted in segments like AVL and Marine is also a cost-effective, long-lived, universal and ready available solution to implement remote metering and control systems.
