Smart Meter Technologies Sdn Bhd and EnVerv, Inc. announced today their collaboration on a family of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) products for Residential, Commercial and Industrial Meters in which EnVerv’s EV8000 Power-Line Communications (PLC) modem System on Chip (SoC) constitutes the communication engine of these platforms.
“We have chosen EnVerv as our AMI technology partner due to superior performance of EnVerv’s modems under difficult network conditions and the fact that all necessary modem components including line driver, physical layer (PHY), media access control (MAC) layer and network layer are all integrated in the EV8000 single-chip SoC,” said Azemi Zainol Abidin, Chairman at Smart Meters Technologies. “Supporting multiple AMI standards and different frequency bands on a single communication hardware allows us to service multiple AMI markets with a single hardware platform.”
“We are very pleased to have Smart Meter Technologies (SMT) as our partner,” said Reza Mirkhani, Sr. Vice President at EnVerv. “Smart Meter Technologies is one of the most established meter makers in Malaysia and offers some of the most advanced Smart Metering solutions in the world. We look forward to a strong relationship with SMT for years to come as SMT expands its product offering to address the export markets of Middle East and South East Asia.”
The EV8000 is a fully integrated single-chip PLC SoC that includes comprehensive modem functionality from the powerline to the network layer and has a programmable frequency bands, covering CENELEC-A, FCC and ARIB frequency bands without any changes to the chip or module hardware. Furthermore, the EV8000 soft-modem can be programmed to operate in ITU-T G.9903 G3-PLC or ITU-T G.9904 PRIME modes simply by downloading their respective firmware code to the chip remotely over the powerline network.

SMT was incorporated in Oct 1986 as a private limited company. It is a fully Malaysian Bumiputra owned company. Since 1996 SMT has been awarded the vendor license to produce and supply electronic meters for Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) and is now established as a “Preferred Vendor” to supply both single and three phase meters to them. Since its inception, SMT is now proud to position itself as one of the leading companies in providing electronic metering solutions. Having installed some metering solutions outside of Malaysia and with their renewed mission to become a global payer, SMT is looking forward to a more vigorous role in future AMI markets.

Actian Corporation has announced the latest version of the Actian Vector in Hadoop (VectorH) database, generally available at the end of July. VectorH is based on the same query engine that powers Actian Vector, which recently doubled the TPC-H benchmark record for non-clustered systems at the 3000GB scale factor (see tpc.org/3323). The ability to easily ingest information from different data sources and rapidly develop queries to make better business decisions is becoming increasingly importan...
