Itron and Milsoft integrated Itron’s smart grid and AMI software and Milsoft’s outage management system (OMS). This collaboration enhances Itron Total Grid, a combined managed services and smart grid offering, and expands capabilities for the public power sector. The integrated systems enable Milsoft’s OMS to request data from all AMI meters from Itron’s multi-commodity systems. Furthermore, Milsoft OMS, through MultiSpeak, can determine the communication status of Itron’s meters.
The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) selected Itron to modernize and manage its metering system. The solution will help SCG optimize the delivery of natural gas, improve customer service and streamline business operations. SCG will utilize Itron TOTAL AMI to run, manage and maintain their gas meter reading system for 20 years. Itron will be responsible for the installation and maintenance of the entire system, including 220,000 Itron gas communication modules and associated fixed-network infrastructure.
