Smart energy data management systems

Utility companies face growing competition and smart decision-making is crucial. Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) helps utilities adapt to changing customer demand including wide-spread distributed energy and increased adoption of electric vehicles. The next generation of utility networks include AMI powered by Edge computing over 5G networks with scalable, elastic IoT cloud capabilities. This enables advanced streaming analytics to digest and process usage data and millions of messages to assess grid conditions in real-time. These advances in data analytics, AI and communications help accelerate grid modernization to create new areas of value for utility operations and transform the customer experience.
