This technology white paper provides the formalized standard design steps for AMI mesh network planning so that utilities can optimize their investment and accomplish their networking goals. The process begins with defining the networking goals of the utility and then understanding the limits of the mesh vendor’s equipment. The design process continues on with redesigning and troubleshooting during the deployment phase. If all steps are performed successfully then the AMI mesh network will exceed performance expectations and the potential of the smart grid can be better realized through this reliable two-way communication network.
