System Software is NES' central data hub empowering smart grid applications:

• Provides powerful management, collection and integration software engines based in the utility's data center
• Deploys, provisions, configures, audits, diagnoses, and retrieves data from low voltage grid sensors
• Includes processing of grid events, collection of meter load profiles and power quality data
• Offers extensive Application Program Interfaces (APIs) for back office integrations.

Key Features of NES System Software

NES system software takes advantage of NES’s local intelligence to reduce data deluge and WAN costs. It enables on-demand reads, instant diagnostics, power outage detection, verification and restoration, move-in/move-out, and secure remote disconnect/reconnect services. Simplified, automated management of communication schedules is also made possible for collecting meter billing reads, on-demand data, reads, events, alarms, power-quality data, and load profiles. All communication is encrypted with enhanced security features and advanced OSGP-AES-128-PSK security is supported.

Secure
Built on industry
leading security features

Reliable
Provides 99.7%
to 100% data availability

Extensible
Enables a full range
of smart grid applications

Proven and Built to Scale
• Capable of scaling to a 5-million meter network
• Uses any standard IP network to communicate with NES Data Concentrators, Distributed Control Nodes, and other utility and non-utility assets
• Backward-compatible and extensible architecture protects investment.

Local Intelligence Reduces Data Deluge
• Two-way grid intelligence for a more stable, reliable, and smarter grid
• Visibility for lowering grid infrastructure lifecycle costs.

Multi-Application Platform Built to Reduce Operational Costs
• Supports sensor assignment and commissioning
• Large-scale demand response and load control
• Automated collection of events, alarms, load profiles, and meter-billing, demand, and power-quality data
• Provides instant diagnostics, power-outage detection verification and restoration, secure remote disconnect/reconnect services.

Open and Built on Industry Standards to Reduce IT Costs
• SOA with SOAP/XML enables easy integration with utility middleware, meter data-management systems, and Web services-aware applications and infrastructure from leading providers.
