American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) partnered with Itron/Silver Spring Networks, Hubble/Aclara, ElectSolve, and BlueBridge Networks to develop the public power industry’s leading Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Program.
Key benefits of the AMI Program to participating municipal utility systems are reductions in implementation risk and long term operations complexities, cost savings through joint action and the provision of Service Level performance guarantees.
The AMI Program information technology architecture is built according to industry best practices with an emphasis on cyber security that includes encryption of communications and active defense measures to detect and stop cyber threats. Silver Springs’ high speed meshed network sets the foundation for future communications needs with advanced capabilities such as street lighting control, environmental monitoring, distribution automation and demand response. The program allows AMP’s member communities of all sizes deploy the foundational components of a smart city.
