Oracle has announced the availability of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) vendor adapters for Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway. These adapters provide utilities with a simplified link between smart grid devices and the applications that use their data, according to the company.

Using Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway and a vendor adapter can create a central interface point between AMI head-end systems and a variety of other applications, such as meter data management, customer care and billing, and network management systems.

The adapters handle the most common AMI processes, including remote connect/disconnect, meter ping and on-demand reads. They can also be extended, in concert with the Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway, to support additional devices or commands.

Adapters are available for Echelon, Itron, Landis+Gyr and Sensus RNI. Oracle says it will soon release Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway Adapter for Silver Spring Networks.

"As the smart grid evolves, utilities will gather an ever-increasing volume of data from a growing list of devices," says Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Utilities. "Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway and its AMI vendor adapters provide a single point of connection linking devices to the applications that need their data."
