MDC High Volumetrics Version
The high-volume version is characterized by including additional components that enhance the functionality of the Prime suite. This new architecture supports the consuption of millions of data points and optimizes the process of downloading and inserting information in the DB.
Architecture high volumetric version
The high-volume version of our MDC has a high availability architecture for managing large volumes of data through messaging queues. This ensures optimal performance of the solution in the event of system failures, and involves deploying a master node and one or more mirror nodes so that when an event occurs one of the mirror nodes can take the place of the master node, making the solution resilient to faults.
Under this architecture the extraction of data from the meters is done through messages, which are sent and managed by a messaging queue manager. Among the components that make up this version are:
- Cache database: Cache memory allows you to quickly retrieve frequently used or requested information.
- Messaging Queue Manager: Scalable messaging agent, high availability for messaging queue management and indispensable in data processing.
- Azure Service Fabric: Microservices architecture for processing information that is extracted from meters.
Benefits of the high volumetric version
- Scalable to multiple instances
- High availability
- Better application performance
- Management of millions of data points
- Optimizing the process of downloading and inserting information
- Distributed architecture that allows you to adjust to the growth of your business
PrimeAnalytics + Meter Data Management (MDM)
+ Solutions, + Intelligence
Our MDM integrates state-of-the-art Big Data and Analytic technologies for consuming, validating and analyzing data from a variety of sources, supporting strategic decision-making, which allows you to take advantage of the information. This becomes the ideal tool for management and administration of your AMI Advanced Measurement Infrastructure.
This solution is designed to work with various data sources with the ability to exchange information with other back-office systems and with multiple HES (Head End System) using cim, MultiSpeak and AMRDEF standards. Our MDM allows both the adequate management of large volumes of information, as well as the generation of value from the data collected to obtain improvements in terms of operations, quality of service, productivity, and profitability of companies. This solution operates as Software as a Service (SaaS). Below you will find the main features of the solution:
We store and centralize information related to your advanced metering infrastructure, providing up-to-date and detailed data on your customers’ consumption, and on the state of the network. We in turn allow the exchange of information from and to external systems. Through the communication and exchange of information with your back-office systems, our solution performs the self-configuration of the business entities, which becomes automated.
We store all the readings received for a variable from a service point even when it already exists with the same time stamp, in such a way that it is possible to perform the versioning of each reading and make this data available for various purposes.
AMI systems management
We support remote and massive execution of tasks such as: cutting, reconnection, power limitation, firmware update and meter programming. This is to maximize the use of your smart metering infrastructure and the reduction of on-site labor costs.
We have a formulator that allows you to establish a wide variety of parameters for the validation and verification of the integrity of the data of your AMI devices, as well as allowing the estimation and editing of data.
Alarms and notifications
We manage the detection and notification of faults and events present in your Intelligent Measurement Infrastructure.
We implement analytics models to give energy companies the ability to control their energy flows, regulate the grid, optimize work, and avoid errors that could cause large losses. Our analytics models enable:
Telemetry Control: Generates indicators and statistics regarding meter calls to offer a clear view of how efficient the different means of communication implemented are used for the inquiry of devices.
Energy Loss Reduction: Implement artificial intelligence algorithms to optimize your business, which allow detecting electrical energy losses by potentiating the power of analytics through the application of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive models.
Tailor-made designs: Understanding that each company has its own needs, the solutions we offer allow our customers to parameterize their own business rules.
Dynamics: Adaptable to the needs of each market since it is oriented to evolve and adjust to changes in the industry.
Interoperable: Ability to exchange information with numerous back-office systems such as HES, GIS, OMS, CIS, ERP and SCADA, through MULTISPEAK, CIM, AMRDEF or web services.
Analytics: Analytics based on artificial intelligence, which, supported by the consumption of data from multiple sources, allows the prediction of results from various processes such as consumer criticism, among others.
Big Data– We have the right architecture to load, transform, and process large volumes of data, without the need for large investments in HARDWARE and IT resources.
Computer Security: cybersecurity based on the NIST SP 800-53, NIST CSF, FedRAMP, ISO27001 and ISO27034 frameworks.
Interactive Dashboards: We guarantee the clear vision and the management of the information related to your Advanced Measurement Infrastructure, through the consultation of indicators and statistics from the solution dashboards.
Architecture of our MDM
The architecture of our MDM is designed to be scalable, high performance, with high availability and incorporates Big Data for the storage, processing, and analysis of large volumes of data. Being a scalable platform, it is possible to increase computing capacity as the customer increases its fleet of meters, since an adequate and effective processing cost is sought, therefore, as the client grows, our solution will also grow seamlessly without noticing changes in the performance. In addition, being a distributed system allows for fault tolerance, thanks to the redundancy of the information that, when stored in different nodes, makes it possible to respond to an event that causes the unavailability of a component.
Our MDM operates as Software as a Service (SaaS) backed by the cloud through AWS, being a 100% web solution, with a modern interface and compatible with the main browsers on the market. This infrastructure allows:
- More efficient development practices
- Continuous performance improvements to the solution
