EDMI, gridComm Collaborate to Create the Most Robust Narrowband Power Line Communication Smart Meter Available

EDMI Will Use gridComm's GC2200 OFDMA Technology in Its Smart Meters

SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - gridComm, a provider of power line communications (PLC) solutions that enable the transformation of the power grid into a smart grid, today announced that it will collaborate with EDMI to create the most robust narrowband PLC smart meters available to date.

Based on its unique, proven GC2200 OFDMA technology, gridComm and EDMI are developing PLC smart meters such as the DIN Rail MK30 and MK31E split meters. Pre-integrated with gridComm GC-Net, an efficient networking software that performs self-adaptive and auto-network routing configurations to operate in a wide range of noise-prone power line environments, the PLC smart meters will guarantee robust and reliable communications that ensure timely read-back of data.

"gridComm brings together disruptive but cost-effective PLC solutions that work," said Leu Yew Seng, general manager of EDMI's International Business Unit. "Working with gridComm allows us to get to market quickly, which helps us shorten development and deployment time. This enables us to meet the demand for smart PLC metering systems as power grids migrate their networks to AMI implementation. We look forward to a strong partnership with gridComm, which will include future collaborations."

"EDMI, a clear leader that provides smart metering solutions of superior quality, is gaining market share aggressively worldwide," noted Mike Holt, CEO of gridComm. "EDMI's selection of gridComm for power line communications validates the value proposition of our robust, reliable power line communications. We are excited and proud to be selected as EDMI's strategic partner."
