Singapore-based smart metering solutions provider EDMI has announced that it has partnered with British multinational semiconductor and software designer Arm Holdings to simplify the deployment of secure Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.
The partnership will see the combination of EDMI’s state of the art smart metering solutions with Arm’s Mbed OS and Pelion IoT platform, enabling EDMI to both cement its position as a leader in the space and enable it to explore other IoT verticals.
"We are thrilled to announce this partnership. Leveraging our heritage in smart metering, the partnership with Arm will bring added value to our customers, which includes scalable, secure and IoT-enabled smart metering solutions," said How New Seng, CEO of EDMI, in the firm’s 27 March press release.
EDMI has provided metering devices and its Energy Cloud software to millions of endpoints around the world, enabling a multifarious range of capabilities for its customers, including: end customer billing; metre data management; demand response; distribution network management with transformer monitoring and power quality measurement; and distributed solar generation monitoring and loss management.
Hima Mukkamala, SVP and GM of IoT Cloud Services at Arm, added: "Smart meters can help utilities quickly localize and address an outage, detect power theft, and provide cost savings and new revenue streams, but the deployments need to be scalable and secure.
"We are partnering with EDMI to provide utilities with a secure end-to-end solution to develop, deploy, connect and manage smart meters through Mbed OS and the Pelion IoT platform."
