Sensus to provide communications for Britain smart meter rollout

Utility infrastructure company Sensus will provide the core communications technology to support the U.K. government’s plan to put smart meters in millions of homes and small businesses by 2020.

Sensus technology will support the rollout of electric and gas smart meters to ten million locations in the Northern region of Great Britain, subject to contract.

The U.K. Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced August 14 that communications company Arqiva has been selected as preferred bidder to provide the smart metering communications service for Northern England and Scotland. In conjunction with Arqiva, Sensus will provide the long-range radio technology for a private, secure and resilient communications network.
