Objective:

Implement a smart metering solution using Stacuity Advanced Feature Set SIMs to enhance data autonomy, secure storage, remote access, and cost-efficiency.

Components Involved:

  1. Smart Meters: Installed at customer locations to measure utility usage (electricity, water, gas).
  2. Stacuity SIMs: Programmable IoT and Enterprise data SIMs with multi-carrier, global coverage, including features like key store value and secure remote access.

Why use a Stacuity SIM – what additional features and benefits are provided?

  1. Off-Net Traffic for Backend System:
    Feature: The Stacuity SIM allows for traffic routing that avoids the public internet. Ability to route the traffic from meter edge locations to the utilities providers back end systems securely, effectively as if the meters are on the LAN.
    Benefit: Enhances security by minimising exposure to public networks and reducing vulnerability to cyberattacks.
  2. Data Autonomy:
    Feature: Stacuity utilise local private gateways within the geography.
    Benefit: Compliance with local data sovereignty laws and regulations, ensuring data privacy and control, whilst also minimising latency.
  3. Remote Access for Control:
    Feature: Secure remote access to smart meters using the programmable capabilities of Stacuity SIMs including the ability to SSH onto the device or access an administrative Web Interface on the device, directly from the Stacuity Portal removing the need for a fixed Public IP address.
    Benefit: Enables real-time monitoring, diagnostics, and remote troubleshooting, reducing the need for physical visits.
  4. Defined Costs Model
    Feature: Utility company pays for SIMs only when active and Stacuity supports flexible data bundles with ability group devices and ensure accurate charging.
    Benefit: Simplifies management and cost-efficient, as the company can manage operational expenses better and scale the solution as needed without incurring unnecessary costs.
  5. Key Store Value for Secure Data Storage
    Feature: Secure storage of sensitive data using an edge key-value store directly from the device without going over the Internet.
    Benefit: Protects customer data, decouples backend systems from the devices in the field allowing asynchronous data processing, ensuring confidentiality and integrity, which is crucial for building customer trust and compliance with regulations.
  6. CMP or API 
    Feature: Ability to white-label Stacuity multi tenant portal to the utility providers brand  to provide intuitive management user interface to control connectivity. Option to API all features into existing applications/systems.
    Benefit: Ability for utility providers team to control, manage and report on each meter, providing MI and identifying trends.

Expected Outcomes.

  • Enhanced Security: Off-net data routing and secure key store value for sensitive information.
  •  Cost Efficiency: Pay-as-you-go model and shared data bundles reduce operational costs.
  •  Improved Compliance: Local data storage ensures compliance with country-specific regulations.
  •  Operational Efficiency: Remote access reduces the need for on-site visits, speeding up response times and maintenance.

By leveraging Stacuity Advanced Feature Set SIMs, the utility company can achieve a secure, cost-effective, and efficient smart metering solution, providing enhanced service to customers while maintaining control over data and operations.
