Evaluating Total Cost Of Ownership Models When Choosing Advanced Metering And Communications Networks
Evaluating Total Cost Of Ownership Models When Choosing Advanced Metering And Communications Networks

This white paper describes how utilities can apply TCO evaluation, which takes into account on-going operations costs, replacement and lifecycle costs and personnel, as well as initial capital investment, to get a more complete picture of what systems will actually cost over time. These TCO calculations prove that point-to-multipoint fixed-network solutions can provide the best TCO of any competitive system, including manual, drive-by or mesh fixed-network solutions.
