Changes in how electricity is produced, delivered and consumed require ‘smarter’ power systems with secure, reliable communications capabilities.

Advanced Meters, or Smart Meters, enable a utility to provide customers with detailed information about their energy usage at different times of the day, which in turn enables customers to better manage their energy use more proactively. Advanced Meters also allow for faster outage detection and restoration and help the environment by offering the opportunity to reduce the need to build power plants, or avoid the use of older, less efficient power plants as customers lower their electric demand.
