Technology and services provider Itron Inc. is rolling out Itron TOTAL, a new way of delivering the company's smart grid and advanced metering infrastructure solutions.

According to Itron, the new offering packages the company's existing capabilities in metering, communications, data management, analysis and professional services in a simplified, subscription-based pricing structure with complete managed services.

With the bundled managed services offering, the company says utilities own the hardware, and Itron manages all network communications, system operations, data delivery, data collection and reporting, basic meter data management, and network management.

Itron notes that utilities can add additional functionality, such as analytics, field installation and maintenance options, distribution automation, and consumer engagement.
