Reply's experience embraces the full “value chain” of
Smart Metering projects for energy and water distributors and Energy Monitoring for Energy Sales Companies and Energy Aggregators, taking into account every aspect connected to the installation of smart meters, sensors and data gateways/concentrators, as well as the implementation and integration of data acquisition and management systems on the new IoT platforms.
The adoption of these new technologies enables Energy Distribution Companies, Energy Sales Companies and Energy Aggregators to develop new IoT solutions, new analytical capabilities of the data and new services.
Today, Smart Metering solutions are leveraging a wide variety of communication networks: PLC communication, GSM/3G/4G, RF 169MHz and 868MHz, NB_IoT, etc., as well as wide variety of protocols.
Sense Reply designs and implements new IoT Smart Metering solutions, based on AWS Platform components, to collect and manage second generation electricity smart meters, gas smart meters and water smart meters through their respective distribution networks. IoT Platforms for Smart Metering can also communicate through OCPP protocols in order to interact with most common commercial charging stations, supporting the implementation of new applications for electric mobility.
The IoT Platform serving Smart Metering will become the platform where the Smart Grid will be managed: any node of the distribution network (point of deliveries, secondary substations, etc.) will be able to communicate the status of numerous parameters and management variables, thus allowing the DNO to plan effectively and operate the network at its best.
Sense Reply collaborates and partners with some of the major Smart Metering manufacturers supporting the technical evolution, the integration of meters and concentrators with the IoT Platform, thus being able to offer a turnkey, end-to-end approach.
