Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) has selected Toshiba Corp. to lead the utility's advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) initiative as the prime contractor and system integrator for the AMI communication system and associated meter data management system (MDMS).

Landis+Gyr, which Toshiba partly acquired in 2011, will be supplying the head-end system, RF communications modules and other pieces of the project. NTT Group and NEC Corp. will also be serving as contractors for the project, which could extend to 27 million customer endpoints.

"We have built a special team to leverage our Gridstream suite and network expertise for the worldwide utility market," says Landis+Gyr's Marius Chilom. "We think TEPCO's approach to this massive upgrade project truly represents the new way of business in the industry and will become a flagship for how utilities will approach the next-generation infrastructure."
