OMS gateway for smart meters

18 August 2010 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Radiocrafts and Sierra Wireless have introduced a new compact gateway based on the open metering system (OMS) specification for automated meter reading.

The GSM/GPRS/EDGE gateway for smart metering embeds a Wireless M-Bus radio in a compact form factor.

The new solution is based on the Sierra Wireless Fastrack Supreme, a modem with programmable application processor capabilities. The Fastrack Supreme comes with an open-standard interface which allows developers to add supplementary I/O connectivity and features in the form of expansion cards. Radiocrafts has developed a unique expansion card for smart metering which adds Wireless M-Bus or ZigBee to the GSM/GPRS/EDGE modem.

A Radio Test Gateway firmware is available free of charge for developers to rapidly tailor the gateway with MUC (multi utility controller) features like data concentration, encryption key distribution and installation support. Source code for the demonstration software is available from Radiocrafts and its partner Asvito.
