Capgemini’s core platform ready for utilities.
Smart meters are considered to be the key enablers to helping utilities achieve their objectives of better energy demand management, improved productivity and a wider service offer for customers.
The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) consists of meters to gather consumption data, concentrators, telecommunication networks to transport data, and head ends to interpret meter data. It also comprises meter data management systems to store, analyse and validate information, then deliver this data to back-end systems for functions such as billing.
With our successful track record in the utility market and deep understanding of business and technology imperatives, Capgemini has created a ready, reusable and scalable AMI platform for the utilities market. Faced with the challenges of multiple, continuously maturing technology standards and non-standard communication protocols, Capgemini successfully developed the platform by addressing a number of risk factors, including impact on standard business processes.
