Powel and Ness prove system performance in Europe's largest smart metering tet

  • Powel ELIN software successfully scaled for 3.5 million meters and 15-minute interval counts.
  • Unique Powel and Ness data collection, validation and estimation processes set a new industry performance standard for overall process management

Powel AS, a leading service and software provider in the utility industry and its partner Ness Technologies, Inc., a global provider of IT and business services solutions, have successfully completed the largest smart meter management test in Europe. Mycroft Mind and its partner, Masaryk University of Brno, Czech Republic, carried out the test on behalf of utility player ČEZ Měření, which operates metering equipment for the ČEZ Group and others; and encompassed data collection, validation and estimation of input from 3.5 million smart meters using a real-life communication protocol.

The test results show that Powel’s vendor-independent system Powel ELIN successfully managed more than 16.000 counts per second in peak times, amounting to close to 1 billion values during the three day test period. The test results set a new milestone in scalability for the Powel ELIN system outperforming comparable systems on the market.
