Canadian utility BC Hydro has entered the next phase of network migration for its smart metering program with the testing of Itron and Cisco's jointly developed IPv6 network architecture.

BC Hydro is transitioning from Itron's RF Mesh smart meter architecture to the smart grid IPv6, according to Itron. After successful back-office migration testing, BC Hydro will now commence validation for the broader-scale migration to the IPv6 network using close to 40,000 of the over 1.8 million meters currently installed, Itron notes.

Itron adds that following validation, migration of the remaining network-connected meters, via over-the-air firmware download, will take place in 2014.
