The Challenge
The UK Government is requiring energy companies to install 53 million gas and electricity meters at 30 million domestic and smaller non-domestic properties by 2020. Under the UK Government's Smart Metering Implementation Programme (SMIP), there was a need for a Communications Service Provider (CSP) to provide connectivity services and communication hubs to energy suppliers. Telefonica was chosn to be this CSP.
The Customer
Department of Energy & Climate Change
About The Customer
Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) of the UK Government.
The Solution
Communications Services Provider (CSP): The UK Government chose us as CSP for two of the three UK regions (South and Central).

M2M Connectivity: We will use their existing cellular network to provide the communication link between the smart meters and the data centre.

Communication Hubs (CH): We will provide CH to connect to the smart meters.

Communication Hubs Management: We will support efficiently CH roll out, maintenance and troubleshooting using our device management services.
Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Compliance]
    These solutions help the UK comply with EU sustainability policies. EU regulation obliges member countries to comply with “triple 20” targets by 2020 (i.e. 20% energy consumption reduction).
  • [Cost Reduction - Energy]
    Reduce energy consumption and cost savings for energy suppliers.
