Interoperability of smart metering systems: smart meter gateway from Sagemcom integrated in NLI-GWA software

Hamburg, 1 st October 2019

SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ, the smart meter gateway (SMGw) of Sagemcom Dr.Neuhaus, is interoperable with the NLI software for gateway administration. Energy suppliers, distribution network operators and municipal utilities using the NLI software can now integrate and profit from the SMGw.

The GWA/EMT software from Next Level Integration GmbH supports the smart meter gateway from Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus. The interoperability of the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ SMGw has been thoroughly tested according to the Technical Guideline TR-03109 of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). All tariffs supported by the SMGw as well as LMN, HAN, WAN interfaces and communication protocols were tested successfully. In addition, the metering data processing between the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ and NLI software was extensively tested.

On the basis of these tests, the application for the certificate of conformity at the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) has been completed, so that the proof of interoperability will be promptly included in the revision of the type examination certificate of the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ.

All energy suppliers, distribution network operators and municipal utilities that use the NLI software can now use the Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus gateway and harness it productively after receiving the formal PTB certificate. The most recently BSI-certified smart meter gateway, which will shortly be BSI-certified, not only fulfils all safety and data protection requirements for the rollout of smart metering systems, but is also one of the highly standardised components of the “Energiewende”.

Both companies will be presenting their smart metering solutions at the metering days in Fulda on October 9 and 10.
