Sweden’s isMobile is to provide its Field Service Management solution in partnership with Ericsson.
The solution, designed to empower the mobile workforce and increase its operational efficiency and delivered on the Coordinator platform, is intended to serve as a deployment tool handling all stages of the meter exchange project.
The smart meter rollout is an initiative of the Israel Electric Corporation.
The first phase of 565,000 smart meters for residential customers has been awarded to Landis+Gyr, with the potential to extend the order up to 4.2 million units.
In addition, Landis+Gyr will provide the head-end system and services for the maintenance of the existing meter data management system and related applications.
“We have been working for a long time together with Ericsson and we are thrilled to have a part in this extensive project,” comments Jonas Ljungdahl, Business Development Manager at isMobile.
The installation of the smart meters is a key component of Israel’s energy sector reform, which is underway until the end of 2024 and will see Israel Electric focus increasingly on transmission and distribution and reduce its activity in generation and supply – this latter opening to competition.
Further, its system administrator role has been taken over by the newly formed Noga company.
isMobile provides a range of solutions from smart meter rollouts to logistics equipment tracking.
Among other recent initiatives announced is a partnership with Tech Mahindra to enhance its AMI Command and Control Centre offering with smart metering operations and field service management.
