Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) System
No two utilities are alike. There are many factors involved when selecting the right Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) system. The factors range from the type of utility, the required capabilities of the AMI systems, type of backhaul available (or desired) and the area topography.
It is also important to understand what capabilities are truly available and what products cannot deliver on their advertised capabilities. The new Smart Meter technologies rely on a wide variety of new telecommunication technology to provide “fixed-base” solutions whereas SCADA technologies have a long proven history.
What performance and financial risks are inherent in the different technologies? Which manufacturers do not abandon old technology and which ones are most likely to service, support and improve on old technology? What are the proprietary aspects of a particular AMI system and how will that affect your long-term service and costs.
It is important you receive answers to these and many other questions from an unbiased source that has real-world experience you can rely on. TritonAMI knows the difference between the trade-show promises and the real-world features, long-term product support and service-after-the sale capabilities that are provided by all the major AMI systems.
From the time you first start thinking about a new AMI system to when you take over and begin operating your new system we will be there to ensure a smooth process that delivers the most benefits for the best value.
