NRG-5 successfully validated and demonastrated the use case Advanced Metering Infrastructure as a Service (AMIaaS) using 5G technology. NRG-5 has enabled AMI service of a smart grid using low-cost/real-time 5G enabled smart meters for end customers and phasor measurement units (PMUs) demonstrating how 5G has the capability of revolutionizing the way modern smart grids are monitored.
