Executive Brief: Advanced Metering Information Systems

This paper describes the challenges posed by an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), how a new class of information systems can address those challenges generally. It introduces the concept of Advanced Metering Information System (AMIS) that bridges the gap between each of the meter and data collection technologies and all the potential utility applications. While the AMI and data collection systems focus on reading meters and coordinating communications with network endpoints, the AMIS provides centralized metered usage data, system asset and administrative data, and automated business process management tools to manage the entire AMI solution and meet operating cost and performance objectives. In the end, the purpose of an AMIS is to help a utility meet its strategic objective - realizing the full potential of its AMI investment.
