Sensus Communication Technology is Supporting Great Britain Smart Metering Project
Sensus is providing the core communications technology to support one of the world’s largest smart metering projects – the UK government’s plan to put smart meters in millions of homes and small businesses by 2020. Sensus technology will support the rollout of electric and gas smart meters to ten million locations in the northern region of Great Britain.
The northern region, encompassing northern England and Scotland, is a vast 113,255 square kilometers (43,726 square miles) of rural and urban communities. It includes six of the10 largest metropolitan areas in the UK: Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Sensus will connect 16 million meters to 10 million homes in the region with its FlexNet™ technology, which is based on open standards and supports IPv6 communication.
With proven results in North America and successful deployments in Europe, Sensus is uniquely qualified to bring its FlexNet communications technology to a project of this magnitude. The communications technology is currently in more than 16 million endpoints, including smart meters and other devices.
