Utilities are deploying millions of smart meters across the globe for energy, water and gas metering and expecting over 300 million smart meters globally in next few years. These meters require networks to be secure, reliable and scalable.

To help utilities monitor and manage smart meter events, alarms, and data, IBM is launching Intelligent Metering Network Management software for greater visibility, control and automation of the smart metering infrastructure. The IBM software taps data captured from smart meters – on service availability and assurance – then correlates it according to policies and thus gain greater insight enabling operational improvements. When data events fall outside the normal patterns, the IBM offering can automatically trigger customer service to create a work order or for staff to review the issue and take the appropriate actions. By doing this, IBM software can help detect and even prevent network faults. Furthermore, with more insight into the location of faults, the utility can manage their services more efficiently with fewer truck roll outs.
IBM Intelligent Metering Network Management provides an end-to-end service management approach with real-time monitoring of the wide variety of devices residing on the transmission and distribution networks. The solution enables utility companies to create a ‘manager of managers’ by integrating service management for multiple devices and networks into a single network operations view.
