Silver Spring Networks wins AMI contract in New Zealand

Silver Spring Networks has been selected by Metrix, a metering service provider and a division of Mighty River Power, to partner with Metrix in delivering advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) services for Trustpower, an electricity generator and energy and telecommunications retailer serving over 225,000 customers across New Zealand.

The deployment will leverage Silver Spring’s multi-application, standards-based IPv6 networking platform and deliver two-way communications.

This furthers the joint deployment in New Zealand by Silver Spring and Metrix, with Silver Spring’s platform being utilized by Metrix in the Northpower and Wellington Electricity networks to deliver services to retailer Mercury Energy, as well as delivering smart metering-as-a-service to multiple retailers alongside distribution network owner, Counties Power.

Silver Spring Networks customers include utilities around the globe such as Baltimore Gas & Electric, CitiPower & Powercor, Commonwealth Edison, CPS Energy, Florida Power & Light, Jemena Electricity Networks Limited, Pacific Gas & Electric, Pepco Holdings, Progress Energy and Singapore Power, among others.
