The CellReader “under-the-glass” communications module on Verizon’s network gives utilities easily deployed two-way AMI solutions that allow scheduled and on-demand access to all meter data. CellReader modules can integrated into existing meters.
Trilliant’s CellReader employs the ANSI C12.22 standard for data access and communications to the C12.19 data tables within the meter via IP packet data connectivity. Using open standards enables utilities to select metering tools and meter data collection applications that are sensible for budgets and objectives.
“Trilliant’s certification underscores our commitment to developing the Smart Grid for the utility market,” said Mike Brander, vice president, Utility and Industrial Vertical Markets, Verizon Wireless. “Our Machine to Machine rate plans and management tools, combined with Trilliant’s CellReader, will enable our joint utility customers to effectively manage large-scale Advanced Metering Infrastructure deployments for the commercial and industrial markets.”
