To answer this growing need, WECO has formed a strategic alliance with AMSLLC to provide the latest in enterprise integration. WNP uses the AMSLLC Listener integration technology to manage all data flow to and from the WNP System, freeing WNP to do what it does best manage the meter operation process. Sample/Periodic Testing and Reports Progress Reports (like dashboard report) Nag Reports (listing of meters that need testing) Pass Fail Reports Market Drivers Device Configuration Management Device configuration management and validation testing is an industry driver for most metering operations today. WATT-Net Plus provides full functionality to ensure traceability with any device at any moment in time. Associate Devices - Peer-to-Peer (devices tracked independently in database) Associate Devices - Parent Child (child device only tracked when associated) Disassociate Devices Manage Firmware Versions Manage Program Versions Manage Multi-function Meter Settings Introducing WATT-Net Plus (WNP) the premier asset and smart grid device management database software solution for electric and gas utilities. WATT-Net Plus is an innovative, industrytargeted solution with a unique testing approach that is full featured and highly configurable to meet your business process requirements. Sample/Periodic Selection Utilities are increasingly looking for ways to more efficiently perform their work, integrate with utility-wide information systems, and manage the significant cost of asset management and AMI meter roll outs. WATT-Net Plus (WNP) provides the vital link in the meter-to-cash process that has become so critical in the Smart Meter/Smart Grid environment. The seven most compelling features needed in today s Smart environment are: Sample/Periodic Reporting Site - Premise Management Now manage commercial, industrial, and substation metering from WNP with full details being documented.

4 WATT-Net Plus Advanced Features: True Device Configuration Management True device configuration management integration is needed for the utility enterprise. Piecing information from specific traditional utility departmental software packages is not effective reliable management. WATT-Net Plus is the first software providing comprehensive firmware version and test tracking for all AMI device configurations. WNP documents meter configuration as soon as it is entered into the system through its full life cycle of multiple firmware, software architecture changes, and test cycles. Any device configuration can be tested and verified with full test details captured for future reference with the WECO 4000 series test equipment. Device Configuration detail can then be shared with the utility enterprise via WATT-Net Plus Listener web services and Service-oriented architecture and Enterprise Service Bus integration. Advanced AMI Testing and Configuration Functionality Legacy meter record systems were not designed to support the extended testing functionality of AMI Devices. As a workaround, utilities have been forced to use the conventional accuracy test points of Full Load, Light Load, and Power Factor for devices that require extended test functionality. WNP is the first meter test automation system to address full AMI configuration and test procedures. Using the WECO patented Dynamic Sequence and Test Processing, it is now possible to configure a device to meet specific AMI metering requirements and verify the configuration under those test conditions by using WECO s 4000 series test equipment. WNP supports all 4000 series test functionality, providing detailed history of any test requirements needed. WNP can capture any conventional KWH Test, as well as Demand Test, 4 Quadrant Test, Harmonic Test Accuracy, or Disconnect Test configurations under load. WNP will then archive these test details for future reference as a part of the device history and can share part or all of this information with other systems on demand via the Listener integration technology. Premise and Site Management Online For years utilities have managed commercial, industrial, and substation accounts on spreadsheets. WNP now offers a solution to provide the functionality to support metering scenarios by tracking the configuration, site, and circuit Administration WATT-Net Plus offers an extensive set of functions to manage systems to meet changing business needs.

6 The Management Dashboard in WNP provides customizable, shop level activities at a glance. Information is quickly viewable on everything from running in-service sample and periodic test progress to device accuracy reports at a glance. Dashboard graph reports include, but are not limited to: extensive AMI test functions supported in the 4000 series, conventional integration technology is not enough. WECO now provides a feature rich Dynamic Link Library (DLL) with full control over our most advanced test functionality for software developers. Meter Shop Customizable Management Capabilities From the meter shop to the field, WNP is feature rich with customization options for everyone along the path. Among the constantly expanding feature list are Sticky Notes, Red Tags, Multimedia Functionality, and the Management Dashboard including the helpful Dashboard Widgets Manager. Yellow Sticky Note The WNP Sticky Note is an electronic alert which can be assigned to any device for downstream processing, providing specific tidbits of information regarding a device, over a certain period of time. This allows users to retrieve the tidbits for future reference. When the device arrives at another test station or returns from the field, a Sticky Note can convey useful information to the next person in the custody chain. One of the most difficult challenges in a meter shop is how to handle and track special process events such as tamper alerts, customer complaints, or other important one-off events as material is returned from the field. Using the WNP Red Tag process is ideal for just such situations. Similar to a Sticky Note, but with Red Tag history and event tracking to capture process details. When a device needs special handling for future processing and reference a Red Tag is the answer. Another convenient feature WNP provides is full multimedia support with the ability for any device, site or circuit identifier to link documents and photos to the item.
