Landis+Gyr, a provider of integrated energy management products, has announced the availability of version 3.3 of the Gridstream meter data management system (MDMS).

According to the company, the Gridstream MDMS automates the movement of data between utility systems and advanced metering head-end systems. In version 3.3, Landis+Gyr says it has further extended the automation functionality that helps utilities establish business rules governing common processes while keeping detailed audit records that ensure compliance with utility business policies.

The new version, Landis+Gyr reports, also includes embedded Cognos software from IBM. The company notes that the combination of Gridstream MDMS data and the business intelligence reporting solution helps enhance the ability of utility personnel to assemble and interact with relevant operational information.

Landis+Gyr adds that it recently validated the real-world scalability of Gridstream MDMS by successfully completing a performance benchmark test. The test was conducted on an Oracle Exadata X3-2 Half-Rack Machine with 30 million meters and recorded sustained processing of more than 427 million meter reads per hour while using 50% of CPU capacity.
