Pacific Power Procures Platform for Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Silver Spring will deploy its multi-application Gen5 IPv6 platform to provide two-way communication capabilities for advanced metering.

Silver Spring Networks, Inc. has been selected by Pacific Power to provide the platform and solutions for an advanced metering infrastructure for approximately 600,000 homes and businesses across 180 communities in Oregon.

Silver Spring will deploy its multi-application Gen5 IPv6 platform to provide two-way communication capabilities for advanced metering that can help Pacific Power better serve its customers, improve grid maintenance and reliability, and offer operational efficiencies.

"Our smart meter investment is another key step toward the energy grid of the future here in Oregon," said Stefan Bird, president and CEO of Pacific Power.

The initial phase of the Pacific Power advanced metering and customer engagement program is expected to begin this year, with meter deployment planned to start in early 2018 and run through mid-2019.
