Jun 04, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Duck River Electric Membership Corporation, or DREMC, has implemented Advanced Metering Infrastructure, or AMI, Smart Grid Meter Data Management, and other smart grid applications from AT&T.
"Our smart grid project goal is to deliver high value applications to our members, and with AT&T's holistic solution approach, we are able to deliver those applications with minimum investment of capital and time," said Michael Watson, vice president, DREMC.
"Deploying our own wireless network would take years to build and manage; AT&T has simplified this process for us, and their highly-reliable network will enable Smart Grid to perform at high speeds, and allow us to focus on delivering the best service to our members."
The key components of the AT&T Smart Grid solution for Duck River Electric include: advanced metering infrastructure, meter data management and professional and project management services.
"AT&T Smart Grid solutions provide utility companies with the opportunity to transform the way they operate," said Mike Troiano, vice president, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. "The ability to communicate with remote devices over AT&T's network can dramatically improve customer service and efficiency levels, as well as lower costs."
