Field Meter Programming and Meter Firmware Upgrades V3

This use case describes field meter programming and meter firmware upgrades. The Metering System enables meter programming and meter firmware upgrade locally in the field. Each Meter has a secured optical port that can be interfaced and programmed with a computer equipped with GE MeterMate. A utility meter technician can connect the GE MeterMate to the Smart Meter via the optical port and upload (apply) programming and firmware upgrades. A smart meter can have its firmware upgraded through the Smart meter’s Opticom port. The Meter electrician will load new firmware through the GE MeterMate software using a laptop computer equipped with an Opticom probe. The meter will acknowledge the successful competition or the failure. The AMI Head-End system will receive an acknowledgment of the program change upon completion or failure.
