Elster Solutions has developed a new infographic that is focused on "simplifying the key components of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) security."

The infographic presents the three benchmarks of AMI security and the top 10 questions to ask about smart grid security. It is available here.

"AMI is a complex system, and its bidirectional communications and power measurement functionality have inherent security considerations that cannot be ignored," says Mark Fronmuller, president of Elster Solutions. "This infographic presents the complex criteria of AMI security in a format that is quick and easy to grasp and which serves as an easily accessible checklist for utilities and practitioners concerned about smart grid security."

Elster offers advanced meters/sensors, secure communications, and data collection, management and analytics solutions for electric utilities.
