PRIME is a vendor independent and license free public communication standard based on utility owned assets.

Non-proprietary, license free open standard that results in lower meter device costs (CAPEX) & lower communication carrier cost (OPEX).

Decentralized network architecture approach provides distributed intelligence with actionable intelligence at site. Distributed intelligence eliminates bulk risks.

A solution serving utilities communication needs due to vertical integration of medium- and low voltage networks, in-home and distributed energy resources.

The sole PLC based open standard that is fully mass deployment proven, providing a mature and complete ecosystem.

A system platform based on open standards eases the integration of future communications, grid monitor & control solutions in MV, LV and in-home networks
