  • Metrum Cellular LTEThe faster, easier, secure way to connect your distribution network

    Aclara Metrum Cellular LTE is the first 4G LTE smart grid solution in the industry delivering your critical data on high-speed, private networks over public infrastructure. By eliminating the overhead of maintaining your own communication system, utilities quickly see a return on their investment by discovering problems faster and easily controlling their grid infrastructure because of our reliable, low-latency data network.

    TCP/IP connectivity to every endpoint device

    Supports full two-way near real-time communications with the meter

    Protocol and meter agnostic

    Embeds x.509 certificates in connected devices

    Utilizes utilities private key infrastructures

    Network IP addresses are private and non-routable from the public Internet

    Plug-and-play deployment (no field configuration)

    Over-the-air firmware upgrades for Metrum LTE modules and all connected devices

    Reconfigure meters over the air

    Direct communications to SCADA via DNP

    Direct communications from MV-90 to commercial meters

    Aclara Metrum Cellular LTE endpoint modules support all of your critical applications, including commercial and industrial (C&I) metering automation, residential metering automation, demand response, remote service disconnect/ reconnect applications and telemetry or monitoring. Whether used for a full-deployment, legacy replacement, or as a fill-in to an existing AMI solution, all utility types benefit fromthe upgraded speed, security and capabilities of Metrum Cellular LTE.

    FEATURES AND BENEFITS

    Partnering with multiple carriers, Metrum Cellular LTE securely delivers data to existing devices located almost anywhere in the United States without the extra cost and headache of maintaining your own communication network. Metrum Cellular LTE modules connect to any existing devices out of the box and is ideal for high-value applications where large amounts of data must be collected in real-time. Metrum Cellular LTE requires no additional infrastructure devices are preconfigured to plug into your network and immediately start delivering your data. Metrum Cellular LTE also provides a new level of security for your distribution network. By utilizing your public key infrastructure, you can distribute and control the security certificates in each device, which come configured with a private, static IP address invisible to the public internet.
