Arm was picked by Korea Electric Power Corp., South Korea’s largest utilities company, to lead the transformation of its metering systems.

As part of a multi-year agreement, Arm will provide IoT software and device management, hardware IP, and consulting services to drive new smart utility use cases for KEPCO.

Arm is working with KEPCO to expand their existing metering system that currently connects household smart meters mainly over wired connectivity. The Arm Mbed IoT Device Management Platform delivers secure connectivity, over-the-air provisioning, and device management.

The solution provides the flexibility organizations require in managing all of their IoT devices whether in the public or private cloud, on-premise or in hybrid environments.

KEPCO plans to use the Mbed IoT Device Platform, Arm Cortex-M33 processor, and Platform Security Architecture (PSA) including Arm TrustZone technology for secure device development, deployment and management.

Arm will deliver a set of IoT solutions that enable KEPCO to deploy and manage millions of connected units and introduce new smart utility use cases.
