Chinese smartmeter maker Hexing is using the Pelion Device Management technology from ARM with Wi-SUN wireless links to reduce costs and reach new markets
Hexing used the platfrom to create full-stack IoT designs with Pelion Device Management and standard-based Wi-SUN (Smart Ubiqitous Network) links for markets in Europe, South East Asia, India and South America. Wi-SUN provides a mesh network architecture that minimizes direct cellular connections for devices without compromising on bandwidth, throughput or security. Pelion Device Management ensures that these smart meters can be maintained and updated over-the-air throughout their multi-year lifecycles.
“Single-network, multi-application deployments adhering to Wi-SUN standards ensure utilities can be confident that their technology is on the most reliable, economical, and extensible secure network available today.," said Liangzhang Zhou, Chairman at Hexing, "Integrating Arm’s market-leading Pelion IoT platform into Hexing’s smart metering products and Orca application offerings delivers proven device management and meter control to operate and maintain the in-life assets, as well as the cost-effective solution for utilities.”
