An interoperable head-end solution
Landis+Gyr strives to give its customers flexible options and offers the Gridstream Core solution in order to serve customers who want to integrate the Landis+Gyr smart metering technology to their existing or preferred Metering Data Management (MDM) system, Customer Information System (CIS) and Distribution Management System (DMS).
The open architecture of the solution enables easy integration into any system through an interface published and maintained by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). The Gridstream Core solution includes both smart meters and a communication and data collection layer that allows for a flexible integration called Gridstream HES. It enables secure communication to the metering infrastructure. Most significantly, the solution is interoperable with third-party devices that conform to IDIS (Interoperable Device Interface Specifications).
Gridstream Core provides not only standard smart metering information for MDM and CIS, but also advanced features to support network monitoring. With the solution, power quality information can be provided to a DMS and alarms are raised upon interruptions and malfunctions. Additionally, remote control of relays allows shaping network loads and enables better management of energy consumption and costs during peak hours.
