Advanced metering partnership launched


Hands Shaking 2San Francisco, CA, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — October 18, 2006 – SPL WorldGroup, a utility software vendor, and Cellnet Technology, Inc., a fixed network data communications provider, have announced a partnership aimed at providing utility clients with an end-to-end solution for advanced metering.

Under the terms of the non-exclusive partnership, SPL and Cellnet will:

  • Provide standard integration between their products. SPL is building integration to Cellnet’s standard APIs using Cellnet web services and batch interfaces and participating in Cellnet’s certification program.
  • Participate jointly in conferences, and individually demonstrate each other’s products.
  • Jointly respond to requests for information and requests for proposals.

“To realize the vision of consumers responding to changing energy prices, utilities need cost-effective end-to-end advanced metering solutions such as the one SPL and Cellnet are pioneering,” said Patti Harper-Slaboszewicz, Director of AMI and MDM at UtiliPoint International. “Utilities that provide the framework for automatic response to price movement can expect to see greater and longer-lasting price response than utilities that provide time-based pricing without the automation framework.”
