Municipal leaders again recognize Sensus AMI solution for smart city innovation
For the fourth consecutive year, the Sensus Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution has been honored by municipal utility executives as the “Best Smart Utility Solution” during the Municipal Smart Grid Summit (MSGS).
The Sensus AMI solution is comprised of smart metering technology and the FlexNet® communication system, a two-way network that securely transmits and receives data over licensed spectrum. The FlexNet system allows utilities across water, electricity, gas and lighting to collect, deliver, manage and analyze data while scaling to meet future communication needs.
“As the shift to smart cities continues, municipalities seek innovative technology solutions that transform their communities,” said David Stair, senior director of North America energy sales at Sensus. “Our AMI solution plays an essential role in enabling this transformation, delivering advanced connectivity and functionality that helps utilities improve the lives of the customers they serve.”
The seventh annual MSGS focused on executives at public power utilities seeking stronger, smarter, more secure and resilient energy infrastructure. The summit featured smart grid technology companies presenting to more than 100 municipal utility executives from across North America.
