Gridstream Meter Data Management System (MDMS) 3.0

Tab navigation

Landis+Gyr the leading global provider of integrated, end-to-end energy management products tailored to energy company needs. The Gridstream Meter Data Management System is one of many Gridstream solutions within the Landis+Gyr portfolio. As an enterprise solution, the Gridstream MDMS consolidates multiple data streams, giving stakeholders across the utility enterprise access to a wealth of smart grid data.

Landis+Gyr and IBM® have team to help utilities more quickly realize the benefits from their smart grid data. Deploying the Gridstream MDMS with expert integrated systems means the hard work has been done. Using systems with integrated expertise can help the utility achieve greater agility, increased efficiency, improved simplicity and enhanced control.

Every day the Gridstream MDMS analyzes, validates and stores hundreds of millions of register and interval meter reads and associated data. It streamlines workflow, sending alarms to connected systems when user action is required and synchronizes data among the MDMS, AMI databases and master systems, creating a single, powerful information source, transforming the data consumed into accurate, timely and actionable information for decision making across revenue, distribution and customer operations as well as other lines of business within the utility. Now, the solution and integration are all rolled into one complete system ready to be deployed and begin delivering real business value.

  • + Functional details

    The Gridstream MDMS serves as an operational hub that unifies seven critical aspects to nearly every utility:

    • Meter Data Acquisition, Analysis & Management

    • Validation, Estimation, Editing

    • Back Office Data Synchronization

    • Advanced Billing Data

    • Policy-based Exception Management and Workflow

    • Real time Command and Control

    • Outage and Restoration Optimization

    • Customer Engagement

  • + Business problem

    Utilities look to improve operational efficiency; improve customer relationships and comply with regulatory requirements. AMI technology provides the raw data necessary to efficiently meet these goals. However, utilities have spent time deploying solutions with few benefits realized. The Gridstream MDMS on expert integrated systems changes deployment from months to days and enables utilities to realize the benefits more quickly.

  • + Business opportunity

    Meter data management systems allow utilities to leverage information about interactions at the point of connection between a customer and the utility, throughout the enterprise. Nearly all departments benefit from access to this data. Notable examples include:

    • Operations requiring field visits (i.e. meter reads for billing or move-in/move-out events, investigation of suspected theft, tampering or service interruption, and others) are significantly reduced by using historical meter reads, real-time reads and/or power status checks, analysis of alerts and alarms, and active monitoring of outage events reported through the AMI / AMR network to identify and validate potential issues.
    • Utility relationships with regulators, third party providers, and all classes of customer (residential, commercial and industrial) are strengthened by providing more accurate and timely communication regarding energy usage and related information collected at the meter. Complying with regulatory rules is simplified by using readily available historical and real-time meter information.

    Now, deployed as an integrated with solution with IBM® enables utilities to realize the benefits of the Gridstream MDMS quickly. Utilities no longer need to focus as much energy on deployment and maintenance. With expert integrated systems it is all about realizing business value and the innovation possible from smart grid and smart meter data.

  • + Return on investment

    The Gridstream MDMS delivers a significant return on Smart Meter (AMI/AMR system) investments. Some of the key ROI areas include:

    Improving demand forecasting, Assisting in capital planning, Predicting distribution system component failures, Remotely handling customer, connect/disconnect services, Reducing manual meter reads, Identifying problems in the field, Maintaining revenue integrity (theft, meter re-sets, etc.), Verifying compliance with demand response programs, Sarbanes Oxley and other government regulations, FERC Reporting, Improving billing accuracy, Reducing response time to customer calls, Time-based pricing schemes, Managing customer environmental footprint.

  • + Competitive advantage

    Agility: Rapid AMI technology evolution and fast-changing regulatory policies are complicating utility buying decisions. Expertise and in-depth understanding of utility issues enables the Gridstream MDMS product team to quickly respond to a dynamic market, providing simplicity, security and faster return on utility Smart Meter (AMI/AMR system) investments.

    Integrated: The Gridstream MDMS as an expert integrated systems combines the flexibility of a general purpose system, the elasticity of the cloud and the simplicity of an appliance all rolled into one.

    Optimized: Landis+Gyr optimizes each technology layer of the MDMS – database, application and workstation – to maintain a compact footprint, saving environmental and capital resources without compromising functionality and performance.
