On-Ramp Wireless has partnered with meter data management system (MDMS) provider Ecologic Analytics to provide a pre-integrated system for utilities looking to implement smart-metering programs.
On-Ramp has also just begun offering meter communication modules for the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) space.
Working with Ecologic Analytics’ MDMS system, On-Ramp’s Ultra-Link Processing (ULP) wireless offering provides an end-to-end smart-meter communications solution for utility companies. Together, the integrated systems enables functions that include:
- Meter readings at intervals as frequent as every 15 minutes;
- On-demand meter readings;
- Firmware broadcast updates; and
- Remote disconnect capabilities.
“Pre-integrating the systems will help drive cost even lower for utilities, which will help them achieve a faster ROI (return on investment),” said Joaquin Silva, president and CEO of On-Ramp.
“The goal of our pre-integrated solution program is to streamline integration projects in the field and accelerate the realization of benefits of interoperable solutions when deployed,” added John Galloway, executive vice president of business development and marketing for Ecologic Analytics.
