Landis+Gyr and Indianapolis Power & Light Co. (IPL) have announced that the two companies have extended their existing network management agreement for the utility's advanced metering network, which has been in place since 1997. As part of the agreement, Landis+Gyr will migrate the network to its two-way Gridstream solution.

The Gridstream solution is a mesh network that connects advanced meters, distribution devices and home area networks as part of a smart grid. Once the new network is installed, Landis+Gyr says IPL will have a scalable and future-ready platform that will support both currently deployed meters and new meters with two-way communications capabilities and advanced data functions.

"Managing advanced metering networks is one of Landis+Gyr's core competencies, and it makes business and operational sense to continue this relationship," says Joe Bentley, senior vice president of customer operations at IPL. "At the same time, we look forward to implementing Gridstream and getting even more value from two-way meters and other devices going forward."
