1 Smart Metering and RF Mesh Networks for Communities

2 AMI RF Mesh Networks Wireless neighborhood networks (typical) Attractive bandwidth/cost trade off Signal penetration Path diversity (reliability) Self configuring Self healing Serves our citizens Proven by Elster. All rights reserved.

3 Wireless Network Wireless, low profile network is friendly to the community... - Low hardware footprint - Low energy burden - No RF interference

4 One Wireless Network, Many Capabilities Electricity metering Water metering Gas metering In home devices Distribution grid devices by Elster. All rights reserved.

5 RF Mesh Installation is Simple Plug in a meter Connects itself to RF Mesh network Asserts itself to Gatekeeper (path construction) Passes its data to head end (per schedule) No manual intervention in the field or office

6 RF Mesh Network Self Configuration 1. GK registers Level 1 nodes 2. GK registers Level 2 nodes Up to 16 levels (rarely goes beyond 2-3 levels) Gatekeeper Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level by Elster. All rights reserved.

7 RF Mesh Reliability is Simple Meter detects broken path Meter re-routes itself back through another path No manual intervention in the field or office

8 RF Mesh Network Self Healing Broken Path Restored Path

9 Technology choices today Mesh Tower PLC Point to Point Speed Fast Fast Slow Bandwidth Broad Narrow Narrow Scalability High Low High Broadcast Speed Medium Fast Slow WAN Choice Fixed Fixed Interference Technology Does Prevent Technology Does Not Prevent No Interference License Unlicensed Shared Bandwidth License Protects Right to Exclusive Bandwidth NA Risk of Frequency Reallocation Very Low Low NA Contention Low (Distributed Path) High (Bubble Up) Low Redundancy Easy (Add gatekeeper) Difficult (Add Towers) None Self Healing High Low None Data Throughput Reliability High (Every Network Element is Repeater) Low to High (Varies with # of Towers and Repeaters Deployed) High

10 Network Bandwidth 10% or less of network capacity used today 1-2 seconds per on-demand read by Elster. All rights reserved.

11 Strong, penetrating signal Lower frequency networks Higher power radios by Elster. All rights reserved.

12 Path Diversity Higher path diversity drives higher reliability and faster network performance by Elster. All rights reserved.

13 Urban, suburban, rural Cost Density of nodes (electric meters) by Elster. All rights reserved.

14 Rural Example Alaska Village Electric Cooperative Villages are several hundreds of miles away and are not accessible in the winter. It is impossible to manually read meters in the winter. Meters are read remotely from office in Anchorage, Alaska. Proactively respond to power outages and other events by Elster. All rights reserved.

15 Affordable Widespread Communications Improvements in RF technology Scale (radio on a chip) Cost Performance (2 way, bandwidth, network latency) Architecture & Packaging Small hardware footprint Reduced installation cost Reduced energy consumption (less hardware + low burden hardware) Reliability (meters are still cash registers) Understanding customer service Understanding the environment Understanding longevity issues Leveraging trade secrets High volume logistics Manufacturing Supply management Quality by Elster. All rights reserved.

16 Serves our citizens Distributed intelligence Accurate, auditable, discrete metering Accurate in home displays Rate flexibility Eliminate premise visits by person or vehicle Outage notification & restoration notification Avoids technology obsolescence by Elster. All rights reserved.

17 Distributed Intelligence by Elster. All rights reserved.

18 Not all RF Mesh Networks support distributed intelligence

19 Serves our environment Low energy burden Low hardware profile Supports demand response Protects natural resources Leak detection Volt/Var control Supports renewable energy by Elster. All rights reserved.

20 AMI RF Mesh Networks Wireless neighborhood networks (typical) Attractive bandwidth/cost trade off Signal penetration Path diversity (reliability) Self configuring Self healing Serves our citizens Proven by Elster. All rights reserved.
