2011 GSMA Mobile Innovation Award
The jury commented: "A fantastic product concentrating on solving the issues presented to utilities in gathering meter data using wireless technology."
The EWM100 is an industrial-grade machine-to-machine communications solution designed specifically for smart metering applications. It provides robust GSM/GPRS connectivity between a utility’s operations center and individual power meters in the field. With secure, real-time communications, utilities can manage grids more efficiently, remotely control services, and support in-home energy management applications that empower consumers to change their consumption behaviour and lower their costs.
As energy suppliers worldwide expand their investments in smart metering technologies, solutions like the EWM100 provide a powerful platform to enhance energy distribution and optimize legacy grids. By enabling end-to-end, two-way communications down to the individual power meter, utilities can enhance electricity generation and distribution, reduce peak consumption by shifting demand loads and, ultimately, create a "greener" power grid that serves more customers with less energy supply.
