M2M solution




I´m new in M2M topics and solutions. I have a client who is a gas and electric service provider. I´m looking for the best solution to provide at least 1 million ARM (automated meter reading) devices with the management software included, centralized in their control room. They want to monitoring the usage of the service, take a read in real time with a specific metering device, and if the customer doesn´t pay shut down the service remotely. The port interface with the meter device that they want to use are RS-232 Rs-485 and MBUS. And they want to transport data to the main server trough GPRS or even WI-FI.

Can you tell me wich solution are in the market to provide me these features and with the hardware and software supply?

I´m writing from Colombia.


Thanks in advance.

    Dear Jean,


    We are already providing similar solution on GPRS in India. We have a large scale solution running on the field. Our solution is specifically tailored for AMR. We use standards based protocols especially tailored for M2M communications (MQTT - www.mqtt.org) for sending meter data. This framework has been tested at a large scale and lot of support from big players is there. ex: Facebook uses the same for it's messenger and runs for 70 Million users. Please have a look at our web www.celllabs.com or write to me on vinpuli@celllabs.com so that we can kick start the things

    Jean Paul,


    Im not sure if you are familiar with RACO Wireless, however we may be able to assist you with this project.  Some of the companies and services offered in this post are great, however we may be able to help you with various aspects of this project.


    We specialize in helping our customers bring all of the parties to table in order to create a solution.  We initially will provide the SIM Card, Airtime Services, and the management portal which is called Omega Management Suite.  You will need help with hardware and software and we can help bring those people to the table for you as well.


    Please feel free to reach out to me if you have further questions.


    Thank you.

    Hi Jean


    According to your description, I think your application will be like this:

    What you need to do is developing the backgroud program. It is not a big job. The GPRS DTU(TCP/IP) is charging for communication between Meter and Database. It is sending transparent data. If any other query, tell me freely please.
