Indianapolis Power & Light to use Landis+Gyr smart grid network

Sponsored by

Landis+Gyr and Indianapolis Power & Light Co. (IPL) announced the two companies have reached agreement on an extension of their existing network management agreement for the utility's advanced metering network that has been in place since 1997.

As part of the agreement, Landis+Gyr will migrate the network to its advanced two-way Gridstream solution, allowing IPL to deploy the latest advanced meters and distribution devices for smart grid applications.

The Gridstream solution is a mesh network that connects advanced meters, distribution devices and home area networks as part of a smart grid. Once the new network is installed, IPL will have a scalable and future-ready platform that will support both currently deployed meters and new meters with two-way communications capabilities and advanced data functions.

Based in Indianapolis, IPL provides electric service to more than 470,000 consumers in the city and surrounding central Indiana communities.
