Business need

Following a European Union directive stipulating that at least 80% of homes must be equipped with smart metering systems to monitor electricity consumption, Enexis, one of the largest energy network operators in the Netherlands, needed a reliable and secure communications infrastructure to support smart metering.


"The solution has been really well received by homeowners, they appreciate being able to see their energy consumption in real time".Lonneke Driessen-Mutters,

Smart Metering Operations Manager, Enexis
