Smart metering is a combination of metering devices, software, and connectivity solutions. The services associated with it, such as professional and managed services are termed as metering services. Metering services play a crucial role in available and future resource management. Majorly two types of meters are available in the current market which includes traditional and smart meter. Compared to traditional metering services, smart metering services are creating significant demand traction across end-use industries. The smartness of the metering systems mainly refers to the collection of metering data remotely. Energy meter is the most important component of the system. Energy meters record the consumption or usage and feed this data via IoT enabled solutions or through other communication networks such as wide area network (WAN) to the central system. A smart metering system requires advanced meter infrastructure (AMI). AMI makes smart metering different from the traditional automatic meter reading (AMR). Governments, water & sewage utilities, electricity manufacturers & distributors, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are gradually discovering the application of metering. Metering helps in lowering operating costs, eliminating leaks and inefficiencies, and improving water conservation. Metering provides accurate records and information for defined time periods. Metering utilities help to dynamically monitor and price resource consumption, are useful for load forecasting, offer faster power restoration, improved billing accuracy, and meet CO2 reduction demands. Metering services allows users to accurately measure energy consumption. Smart metering is anticipated to reduce domestic energy consumption across the world. Metering services are penetrating the end-use markets due to such advantages. A growing competitive atmosphere is anticipated to lead to remarkable growth of the metering as a service market globally.
