Driving seamless interoperable Smart Utility & Smart Cities solutions 

The Wi-SUN Alliance and the DLMS User Association have embarked upon a collaboration to ensure seamless interoperability of solutions carrying DLMS/COSEM applications over Wi-SUN communications networks.  A joint working session of the two groups was held at MSZT (Magyar SzabványügyiTestület, Hungarian Standards Institute) in Budapest recently to create a scope of work and deliverables that will further enable Smart Utility, Smart City and Industrial IoT services.  The two organizations executed a memorandum of understanding for this effort in a ceremony at European Utility Week 2017 in Amsterdam.

The joint efforts will include a technical review of the DLMS UA Blue, Green and Yellow Books and Wi-SUN Technical Profile Specifications.  The ultimate goal is to facilitate the joint promotion of assured interoperable solutions utilizing the DLMS/COSEM and Wi-SUN technologies together.  Both organizations have established robust and globally recognized certification programs to support this goal.

“Through the integration of DLMS/COSEM, the most widely deployed metering protocol in the world, and Wi-SUN, a communications technology with tens of millions of connected devices, this collaboration represents a major step forward in the global adoption of a standardised ecosystem for Smart Utilities and Smart Cities,” says Phil Beecher, President, Wi-SUN Alliance.

“With key stakeholders from both the Wi-SUN Alliance and the DLMS UA working together, we will further strengthen the value proposition and business model for those deploying Smart Utility and Smart City solutions. This will extend the scope of DLMS/COSEM as a versatile, communication media-independent data model and rich application layer protocol,” says GyözöKmethy, President of the DLMS UA.
