Toshiba Corp. has announced that it will work with Tokyo Electric Power Co. to create a communication system for the utility's smart meter rollout of 27 million units in the next decade.

Toshiba says this platform will be its largest communication system, breaking the company's previous record of 10 million endpoints for Pacific and Gas Electric Co. The company will work as a prime contractor and system integrator of the communication system and supply a head-end system and concentrators.

In building the system, the company says it will incorporate global standards together with smart meter technology from Landis+Gyr AG, a subsidiary of Toshiba. Toshiba also will work closely with NTT Group and NEC Corp. on the project.
