LPWAN technologies: Design and implementation of WEIGHTLESS enabled AMI in tai-power
- Conference Paper
WEIGHTLESS LPWAN technology has been experiencing significant growth in deployment numbers, owing to its inherent capabilities of long-range, low power, massive scalability, firmware-over-the-air and reliable bi-directional communication. Currently, there is no literature available on its performance for AMI electricity metering projects. In this paper, a review of the various connectivity solutions for electricity meters, comparison of the LPWAN technologies for AMI implementations, and analysis of WEIGHTLESS LPWAN solution for AMI are presented. A case study of the real-world performance of the WEIGHTLESS AMI implementation in high-density urban areas for the Taiw an Power Company (Tai-Power) is presented. Actual performance and network coverage using WEICHTLESS LPWAN technology exceeds expectations for all test locations. Show more
