NetComm Wireless Ltd. has been selected by Australian utility SP AusNet, through its integration partner Ericsson, to supply the 3G communications card component for the Victorian Government's mandatory statewide rollout of smart meters.

SP AusNet will manage the replacement of existing mechanical meters with smart meters across northern and eastern Victoria. NetComm Wireless says it purpose-built its 3G communications card to interoperate with the utility's preferred smart meter provider, Landis+Gyr.

“NetComm Wireless has targeted the smart meter sector as a key area of M2M growth, and this announcement marks our first major smart meter win,” says David Stewart, NetComm CEO and managing director. “We are currently engaged in a wireless smart meter trial in North America and see excellent prospects for the deployment of 3G solutions to other smart grid projects across the globe.”
