eMeter completes metering benchmark test
eMeter completed a 50 million meter benchmark test, meaning its EnergyIP Smart Grid Application Platform can provide utilities with the energy consumption analytics
As part of the benchmarking process, eMeter achieved Oracle Exadata Optimized status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), demonstrating that EnergyIP has been tested and tuned with Oracle Exadata Database Machine to deliver speed, scalability and reliability to energy and water utility customers.
Testing EnergyIP 7.6 with Oracle Exadata was based on multiple real world scenarios requiring estimation of missing data, computing and delivering time-of-use billing values, and updating database records related to high-volume smart meter installations and normal daily customer changes. Combined with the meter read processing, these "day in the life" scenarios required less than nine hours processing time and averaged less than 50 percent of Oracle Exadata capacity.
eMeter, a Siemens business was acquired by Siemens in January 2012. EnergyIP is in use by electric, gas and water utilities in over 16 countries.
