6 Digital Energy’s MDS Mercury provides the wireless communications for AMI Long distance, high speed, 2-way communications using WiMAX technology at 3.65GHz Secure data handling through data encryption and user authentication Network Management using PulseNET Smart Grid Communications Serves more than 2.5 Million customers Collects concentrated meter data and transmits to data center Enables WiMAX wireless network for Smart Grid Customer Highlight | wireless smart metering Residential Metering Data Remote Access Point MDS Mercury 3650 Utility Data Center

7 Goals and Assumptions Goal: Create a backhaul network from Itron Cell Relay Nodes to CMP substations Assumptions: Assume there are approximately 1,565 Itron CRNs Assume there are approximately 1,500 DA/SCADA devices Assume that there are 280 substations that can be used as network infrastructure Assume a height of 100 ft. for installing antennas at substations Assume a height of 30 ft. for installing remotes at CRNs (poles) Actions: How do we deliver coverage (range), speed (data rates), reliability (strong signals)? How do we make the infrastructure manageable? i.e. cost efficient, secure, easy to deploy and easy to manage
