(PresseBox) ( Noerresundby, )
RTX Telecom A/S enters the European Smart Metering Industry Group (ESMIG) in order to promote the acceptance of wireless communication for Smart Grids on the European Market.

As a fully-fledged member of ESMIG, RTX Telecom A/S will take an active share in bringing the metering technology into the 21st century with a pan-European transition from traditional (manual) utility metering to Smart Metering.

Smart Metering entails aspects of providing a two-way information, gateway and communication infrastructure, between the metering systems and relevant parties and their systems. This allows RTX to contribute to the work and partners of ESMIG by bringing a deep knowledge about combining communication technologies used in Home Area Networks (HAN) with technologies used in Wide Area Networks (WAN). Hence, based on its extensive experience, designing and developing complex wireless solutions in various contexts, RTX assumes the role as wireless communications expert in ESMIG's standardization work for metering and communications.

"Entering ESMIG is an important step to positioning RTX as a key player within Green Communication Technology", says Jesper Mailind, President and CEO, RTX Telecom A/S. "We have launched several initiatives to achieve this objective, including the Ultra Low Energy program, and we are pleased to see that the synergies between these initiatives are becoming visible."


ESMIG's members are the leading companies in the European Smart Metering market: meter manufacturers, communications solution suppliers, IT companies, system integrators. ESMIG provides advice and expertise to key stakeholders, such as the European Union institutions, EU Member States governments and authorities, regulators, consumers and utilities on all aspects related to Smart Metering including electricity, gas, water, and heat measurement

ESMIG encourages the relevant industries to take a key role in rolling out and making adequate use of Smart Metering technology consistently in each of the 27 Member States of the EU and in securing the maximum benefit from the new technology for users, utilities and the environment.
