Following completion of feasibility analysis by MeterSYS, the Town of Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina has selected us to lead Phase 1 of AMI implementation beginning in May of 2018. MeterSYS, in partnership with United Systems and Itron, will begin converting the Town’s existing Itron drive-by AMR read technology to fixed-base AMI through Itron Choice Connect. Under this initial Phase, MeterSYS will install 3 collectors and 2 repeaters across a dense section of the Town’s 11,000 customers.
Beyond the network, MeterSYS field technicians will improve RF reach for the AMI network by installing Itron ERTs with through-the-lid adapters for 5,000 services served by the planned collectors and support the installation and training of Choice Connect software. MeterSYS will lead the evaluation of Phase 1 results and, in cooperation with Town staff, plan and deliver Phase 2 of implementation which will complete the conversion of the Town’s water utility to advanced metering infrastructure.
