Raleigh, NC and Abilene, TZ, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- October 24, 2008 - Interoperability has been achieved between Milsoft Utility Solutions’ DisSPatch® Outage Management System (OMS) and Elster’s EnergyAxis® System.

Using MultiSpeak 3.0 as the primary integration platform, OMS and smart meters combine to give utilities powerful tools to use real time power outage data to restore power faster and more efficiently than ever before. With the certified cross functionality, utilities can take an important stride toward implementing key components of a smart grid.

"Milsoft is excited to be proven interoperable with Elster's EnergyAxis® System, said Ed Carlson, vice president of sales and marketing, Milsoft Utility Solutions. “The ability to utilize data from Elster's system in a near real time method toward outage device predictions and verification of restoration maximizes both the available technology and the utility’s return on investment."
