New Release of Kamstrup's Smart Grid Head-End
Kamstrup has released version 2.6 of its head-end system UtiliDriver® - A Smart Grid Head-end/Advanced Metering Infrastructure for large deployments
Smart Grid Product Manager, Henrik Bæk Jørgensen adds: “UtiliDriver is an important component in Kamstrup’s Smart Grid strategy as it on top of the basic Advanced Metering Infrastructure functionality also serves as the communication engine ensuring that e.g. alarms from Smart Meters are made available in a utility’s Distribution Management System. The benefits from this kind of integration are 1) substantially enhanced low voltage interruption management and 2) improved customer service including better and faster communication in case of outages and better monitoring of voltage quality”.
Important new features of Kamstrup UtiliDriver®
• RESTful Service Technology for Improved interoperability. REST is based on the http protocol and “anything”
• Performance optimization via enhanced architecture making it possible to parallelize more jobs and hereby better utilize state-of-the-
