What is an Advanced Metering Infrastructure?

Advanced meter infrastructure (AMI) is not a single technology, but rather an integration of many technologies and components that provide an intelligent connection between consumers and the utility.

AMI includes

  • Smart meters
  • Wide area communications infrastructure
    - Radio frequency data networks
    - Cellular and satellite data networks
  • Home (local) area networks (HAN)
  • Meter data management systems (MDMS)
  • Network and outage management systems (NMS/OMS)
  • Operational gateways

AMI gives consumers the information they need to make intelligent decisions about their energy use. In addition utilities are able to greatly improve consumer service by refining utility operating and asset management processes, designing new rate plans and facilitating consumer demand response programmes based on the analysis of AMI data.

Arc uses its own development team to fully integrate disparate AMI technologies into one unifying platform to achieve maximum benefits.
