Advanced Metering Gateway System

The Advanced Metering Gateway System, designated as RS-SE-301, is a complete IEEE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi based solution to monitor and control the usage of utilities such as electricity, gas and water meters. The RS-SE-301 functions as a central communication node and policy manager for the home. It enables smart energy management by establishing a two way communication link from the utility to the energy meter and other smart energy appliances within the home It helps enhance the efficiency of utility networks and reduces cost through wireless remote management and access to real time usage information. As a key system component in the Redpine’s WinergyNet™ architecture which provides seamless, secure and cost-effective communications for Smart Energy Management based on 802.11n Wi-Fi®, the RS-SE-301 system leverages existing Wi-Fi networks and existing utility networking infrastructure to enable rapid Smart Grid deployment.. The RS-SE-301 module is a complete solution for building Smart Meters with open interfaces to utility management, accounting and billing systems. It includes full-featured Access Point functionality with enterprise security; and its scalable operating system provides a convenient platform and policy framework for the development of several smart energy applications. The RS-SE-301 implements a DLMS compliant meter server stack that runs over a TCP/IP network with support for IPSec termination. The system also supports 802.11s mesh networking to expand network coverage by relaying information through other Advanced Metering Gateway units or other Wi-Fi mesh nodes.
