London, Canada and Liberty Lake, WA, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- December 10, 2010 - Ontario utility London Hydro is to implement Itron’s Enterprise Edition™ Meter Data Management (MDM) as its local data analysis and storage repository to realize the benefits of its smart meter infrastructure.

London Hydro will deploy Itron’s software as an SAP meter data unification and synchronization (MDUS) solution, whereby it is fully integrated with SAP’s AMI billing solution. In addition, to ensure seamless coordination of data synchronization and data transfer, Itron’s software will normalize data from data collection systems to enable time-of-use rates.

According to London Hydro’s director of programs Syed Mir in a statement, the choice was based on the MDM’s robust functionality coupled with Itron’s participation with the SAP Lighthouse Council and pre-integration work with SAP.
