Ecologic Analytics, a Landis+Gyr company, says it has completed a meter data management (MDM) system performance benchmark test. The test executed daily meter-to-cash processing for 10 million smart meters, each providing dual-channel 15-minute interval reads. All processing for the daily quantity of 2 billion meter reads was completed in 11 hours, according to the company.

The test was built and executed to represent real-world, daily meter-to-cash processing in a steady-state, fully deployed smart metering environment. To mirror production validation and data analytical operations, the test environment was pre-loaded with 10 million smart meters and 13-months of historical daily reads.

Daily meter-to-cash processing included adding 10,000 new smart meters, the consumption of 2 billion register and interval meter reads provided in IEC-CIM 61968 Part 9 compliant format, and validation editing and estimation processing of all 2 billion meter reads received for the day.

"By design, we are able to tune workload processing speeds to maximize hardware configurations and utility processing goals," says David Hubbard, co-founder and chief technology officer of Ecologic Analytics. "This latest benchmark test demonstrates the processes currently running at our customer sites on a daily basis."

Ecologic Analytics says it completed this test to illustrate how an optimized infrastructure can effectively and efficiently address the challenges of managing smart meter data at scale.
