Itron Inc. will provide Texas-New Mexico Power (TNMP) with analytics software-as-a-service to help ensure the data from its advanced metering network creates additional value for the utility.

According to Itron, TNMP is more than halfway through its deployment of Itron's network solution that utilizes cellular communications, with 125,000 Itron cellular smart meters installed and operating.

As a part of its managed services offering, Itron says it will run and manage the analytics solution, deliver regular analytic reports and provide operational recommendations to TNMP.

The analytics solution, which is pre-integrated with Itron data collection and management systems, includes energy diversion detection, transformer load management, and outage and voltage data analysis, Itron adds.

"We look forward to helping TNMP take advantage of its smart cellular network by delivering new insight into utility operations and opportunities to improve energy delivery," comments Mark de Vere White, president of Itron's electricity business line.
