Secure Gateway for
Smart Metering Applications

The SMARTY SCM controller from Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus enables multi-line remote data reading from domestic supply meters. An SCM controller can work stand-alone, as PLC router or as PLC gateway: As a PLC gateway, it communicates with one or more central locations via GPRS or LAN. As a PLC router, it communicates with a PLC gateway via PLC.

Different meter protocols like DLMS/Cosem or wireless M-Bus are supported by the SCM and provide high flexibility for installations. Other technologies and interfaces, such as ZigBee, are available upon request.

The SMARTY SCM controller satisfied highest security requirements. It uses state-of-the-art technologies including a hardware security module (HSM) and cryptographic algorithms (e.g. end-to-end TLS). All access to the device is based on certificates.

The SMARTY SCM controller can be configured and administered locally or remotely. A local interface enables direct access to measurement values for end customer information.

The SCM controller meets all requirements of large-scale deployments. It is a future-proof communication module which complies with European Smart Metering standardization activities.



  • Reliable and flexible WAN communication (PLC, LAN, GPRS, WiFi)
  • Highest security based on proven standards and cryptographic hardware (HSM)
  • Flexible meter integration, supporting a range of wired and wireless meter inferfaces
  • Compliant with European standardization for Smart Metering Gateways (M/441)
  • Easy and automated installation, fully integrated into central processes.
  • Minimizes time and risk for customer installations


  • SCM controller
  • DSL modem or DSL router (for WAN communication via DSL)
  • GPRS module, antenna and SIM card (for WAN communication via GPRS)
  • WiFi module, antenna (for WAN communication via WiFi)
