Meter reading is the most basic function of any smart metering system, and the first thing Trilliant’s customer achieve in typical deployments. The meter-to-cash process is critical to utilities, and establishing early success in implementing this process provides an immediate benefit for utilities.
However, Trilliant enables Smart Metering applications far beyond basic meter reading.
The Trilliant system is built to support full access to all meter tables, objects, functions, and profiles. The platform flexibility Trilliant developed with our early CellReader products have become core to our philosophy around metering: the job of the Trilliant platform is to provide reliable, secure, cost-effective access to all the capability offered by the meters. This approach has led Trilliant to provide full support for a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial, single phase and polyphase meters from a variety of vendors.
This unparalleled access to meter capabilities provides a unique opportunity for meter vendors to differentiate their meter offerings with new capabilities, and for utilities to take advantage of the most advanced meters available.
Providing daily reads is a big step forward for many utilities that have traditionally read meters no more than once per month. Moving to 15-minute interval data once per day is a big step forward. However, many of the highest value applications – such as conservation voltage reporting – require more frequent meter reading and data collection. Trilliant’s communications platform – with Trilliant’s Distributed Data eXchange (DDX) technology and Trilliant’s high-bandwidth communications – is purpose built to provide the data collection performance required for the most demanding applications at the world’s largest utilities. Prepayment, conservation voltage reduction, and real-time pricing are all possible using Trilliant’s Platform.
Trilliant’s platform is also built for integration. Proven with a variety of the market leading MDM systems as well as many homegrown MDM, CIS, and billing systems, the Trilliant platform provides data access and integration using a variety of standards-based formats. The integration flexibility allows utilities to maximize the value from the new data available from the Trilliant Smart Metering system.
