Value-added services over secure communications infrastructure
The devolo SMGWplus
provides considerably more than required by law. The BSI and FNN compliant device is ready for value-added services from the moment it leaves the factory. Additional services can be loaded later as an app, which means they can be offered to end customers individually. The measuring point operator creates the conditions for attractive value-added services through the use of the smart meter gateway and its added-value service capability. This makes it possible to use existing, highly secure communication infrastructure for additional purposes. The measuring point operator can decide independently whether or not to offer value-added services or require external market participants to pay a service fee for provision of the infrastructure.
Benefits at a glance
- ADDED VALUE. The devolo SMGWplus is automatically ready for value-added services. Submetering, local energy management and the switching of large producers and consumers in the grid are just a few examples of the ADDED VALUE.
- Ready for value-added services. The architecture of the devolo SMGWplus lets you remotely install value-added service apps at any time.
- Compliant with BSI, FNN and PTB. The devolo SMGWplus meets the BSI specifications for data security and data privacy, the design and functional requirements of the FNN specifications and the calibration requirements of the PTB.
- Incremental firmware updates. Preservation of the bandwidth through patches (partial updates). Advantage: smaller data packets, faster updating, higher availability.
Secured communication in the smart grid
The devolo SMGWplus
is the central security component in the smart grid and ensures encrypted, BSI-compliant data transmission between utility meters and gateway administration (GWA). It records both wired meters and wireless meters connected via Wireless M-Bus. The SMGWplus
provides encrypted data to the GWA and authorised market participants over a WAN interface (Wide Area Network). The end customer can visualise consumption over a HAN interface (Home Area Network) and take advantage of utility provider‘s variable electricity rates. Moreover, network operators can use the HAN_CLS (Controllable Local Services) interface to control consumers and feeders.
