METER DATA MANAGEMENT

MECOMS™ Meter Data Management focuses on data quality and controlling the information flood. It is a full-fledged MDM system, handling all aspects of meter data collection, validation and calculation to turn raw meter reads into reliable consumption data.

MECOMS™ Meter Reading Management

MECOMS™ is smart meter ready.  It provides two-way communication with smart meters and is able to processes large volumes of smart metering data via the Smart Metering Communication Bus.  Moreover, MECOMS™ facilitates smart metering processes for meter asset management, monitoring and the interaction with customers and other market parties. MECOMS™ also handles Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) as a core process. It can easily integrate with existing systems, such as MV90, but also communicates natively with other automatic meters, without additional appliances. An efficient unmetered to metered flow facilitates large-scale meter deployments and offers bulk transferring connections from specific areas.

MECOMS™ Validation and Calculation

Meter readings are stored and validated in MECOMS™ using flexible business rules. Even on ordinary hardware, MECOMS™ smoothly processes and stores millions of meter readings.

MECOMS™ allows the definition of business validation rules in a user-friendly manner, without additional development. Multiple rules can be active simultaneously, and can be prioritized to match changing business needs. The validation rules are executed in the main MECOMS™ system, but also on mobile devices and self-service portals to further reduce the likelihood of erroneous values.

Smart Metering Communication Bus

MECOMS™ Smart Metering Communication Bus (SMCB) has been designed to manage Smart Metering assets and complex two-way communication in a multi-brand, multi-protocol and multi-user environment. SMCB guarantees a comprehensive management of the metering assets, while at the same time offering the flexibility to link several different proprietary protocols to each other and the central system. In addition, it supports "push" as well as "pull" AMI architectures. SMCB makes MECOMS™ a device-independent solution.
