Sensus has announced that its open standards-based FlexNet communication network has achieved MultiSpeak 3.0 certification for interoperability with the iVUE system from the National Information Solutions Cooperative.

The MultiSpeak specification is a standard developed under the guidance of National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) members that facilitates interoperability among multiple vendor software products used primarily by electric utilities. Sensus says the new FlexNet MultiSpeak interface allows iVUE users to import data generated from wireless endpoints to existing enterprise applications for customer care and billing, accounting, engineering and e-commerce solutions, as well as customer portals. The FlexNet system supports multiple applications for utilities, including smart metering, distribution automation and demand response.

“Harnessing data from discrete systems into actionable intelligence is an important aspect of utility operations, and interoperability is crucial,” says Matt Ferguson, software marketing director at Sensus. “For that reason, Sensus is an enthusiastic supporter of, and participant in, the establishment of industry standards such as MultiSpeak.”

“Achieving certification with the MultiSpeak specification assures interoperability with the Sensus FlexNet communication network and the iVUE system, which reduces the costs of implementation for distribution utilities,” adds Bob Saint, NRECA’s MultiSpeak program manager.
