As part of Metering, Billing/CRM Africa 2008 a Smart Metering MBA workshop will be offered, presenting a comprehensive look at advanced metering, including the drivers of smart metering and advanced metering technologies as well as an overview of available vendor offerings.

Advanced metering intelligence will also be covered and attendees will get to understand the importance of revenue intelligence in AMI and see how smart meters manage DSM in an effective way by dynamically managing the entire load spectrum. Attendees will also understand how fraud is prevented and how consumer equipment is protected from network anomalies such as high/low voltage.

Metering, Billing/CRM Africa forms part of African Utility Week which will take place from May 20-23, 2008 in Cape Town, South Africa. African Utility Week’s unique training, networking and discussion platforms will demonstrate how utilities can be more efficient and offer cost-effective services through improved infrastructure maintenance, load management, delivery and revenue management choices. Last year, this prestigious event attracted its highest level of delegates — over 1,000 from 47 countries.
