Landis+Gyr introduces Gridstream AIM – the intelligent software for AMM
Manage energy better throughout the metering value chain
Gridstream AIM enhances utility processes by gathering, managing and refining metering data and passing it on to the utility’s different IT systems. The system helps to improve customer satisfaction through accurate billing and efficient customer service. It allows utilities to develop new customized product offerings for different customer groups. It provides tools for network management and increases operating efficiency. Also, the system provides tools for personal energy management, increasing consumer awareness of their energy usage and helping them to manage energy better.
Gridstream AIM software technology is based on open standards and protocols on all system levels. Open protocols, such as standard IEC-PLC, M-Bus, are used for optimal communication between devices. Communication from devices to software is based on IP technology. Across the entire Gridstream AIM architecture, data is modeled according to the DLMS/COSEM standard. This enables easy integration with existing utility infrastructure, and the open architecture allows utilities to manage a heterogeneous device infrastructure in a cost efficient way. Gridstream AIM can be easily integrated into utilities’ existing IT systems, and SAP integration is included in the system.
Scalability and flexibility
The modular structure of Gridstream AIM makes it easily scalable. This enables the system to be customized to meet the needs of different utilities at different stages of AMM implementation. The system can adapt to utilities’ long-term needs, enabling a flexible increase in the number of metering points, amount of data gathered and in the frequency of meter readings.
Advanced multi-energy functionalities
Thanks to Gridstream AIM, multiple energy forms including electricity, gas, water and heat/cold can be covered with single AMM software. This results in significant savings in reading, installation, hardware, licensing, operating, training and maintenance costs.
