Jackson, Mississippi upgrades AMI with Mueller Systems

The city of Jackson, Mississippi will upgrade its water system with Mueller Systems’ advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network through a contract from Siemens Industry’s Building Technologies division.

The city of Jackson will implement the Mi.Net Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities — Mueller Systems’ advanced two-way AMI network. The Mi.Net System will automate the city’s meter reading-to-billing process by linking its meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network.

In addition to the Mi.Net System, the city will install 65,000 water meters throughout the city by the end of 2014. All residential meters will be Mueller Systems’ 420 Remote Disconnect Meter (RDM). The 420 RDM is a fully integrated remote disconnect meter and is designed to enable the city to remotely manage water services through the Mi.Net System.

The Mi.Net System enables utilities to improve operational efficiencies and customer service by fully automating the meter reading-to-billing process and linking meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network. The Mi.Net System features on-demand meter readings, e-mail alerts and alarms based upon near real-time information as well as the ability for utilities to better manage their water resources through on-going access to custom data and information.
