DNO concerns were mostly around power outage/restore alerts and the power supply via the ICHI. Service user concerns regarding size of the Comms Hub addressed through Comms Hub Data Sheets to be released end March 2014 (some data already provided to TBDG in Feb). * Metering equipment manufacturers include the UK Meter Forum † Other SEC Party is a natural person Response: Q1: Do you agree that the Specification is achievable? Q2: Do you agree with the wording concerning cradles, adaptors and flying leads? Q3: Is there a market requirement or desire to mount a Comms Hub on any other devices apart from than a ESME, Cradle or Hot Shoe as defined in ICHIS?
