Smart Metering System

USMS provides smart metering solutions to collect, process, store and deliver the data required to efficiently bill your customers, manage your network and make informed energy efficiency decisions.  USMS is a Meter Data Management (MDM) platform that consolidates data from a range of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) smart metering and interval metering systems, validates data through a VEE engine, stores data in a highly scalable Operational Data Store (ODS) and delivers validated data to a range of billing systems.  This platform, including its applications and interfaces, is offered under a managed services model that is affordable to small and mid-sized utilities.

Your AMI smart metering and interval metering infrastructure relies on a communications network. Be it wireless mesh, point-to-point or power line carrier, there will always be gaps in the data of your daily reads from interval and smart meters. To support your billing system, you need to cleanse your data through a VEE engine in order to deliver validated data to your billing system.
