Landis+Gyr has released version 6.1 of its operating software, Command Center, for monitoring and control of Gridstream advanced metering and grid management solutions.

The company says the software provides support for new meters and communication modules, new network management functionality, and security enhancements. The software also introduces an IPv6 gateway to enable use of common IT tools in addressing Gridstream RF devices.

According to Landis+Gyr, the Ipv6 gateway provides greater interaction with utility IP-based tools for communicating with network devices, exporting meter data and simple network management protocol monitoring. The gateway is part of a standards-based architecture initiative to enable the use of IPv6 applications in legacy smart grid systems and enhance Gridstream functionality with grid management equipment partners.

Security enhancements include new password management options and new settings for advanced security related to the expiration and reconfiguration of encryption keys, the company notes.

"Command Center 6.1 includes updates that allow Gridstream customers to expand their connected devices, gain operating efficiencies and improve overall network performance," comments Lisa Washburn, director of software product management. "It's focused on improving user controls and adding support for new products and standards-based protocols."
