This use case addresses the On Demand Meter Reading message generated by the CIS system.
An on-demand meter read is issued in the Customer Information System (CIS) for any legitimate reason. The message is sent to the AMI Head-End and routed to the appropriate Smart Meter. When the message is received at the NIC (part of the Smart Meter), it is converted and sent on to the Meter Metrology Board (part of the Smart Meter) which performs the meter reads and sends the data back to the NIC, which sends it on to the AMI Head-End. The AMI Head-End sends the information to the CIS.
