Events and scheduling for communication in wireless networks

Techniques for communicating schedule data regarding a schedule are described herein. For example, a device may communicate a schedule information element that includes a tag indicating a first operating context to which to apply schedule data regarding a schedule. The schedule information element may also include a reference tag to... Itron Inc

Discovery mechanism for communication in wireless networks

Techniques for discovering a device in a wireless network are described herein. For example, a first device may send a network discovery solicitation message to a second device to solicit a communication relationship (e.g., request connection to a parent). The network discovery solicitation may include one or more information elements... Itron Inc

Channel structure for communication in wireless networks

Techniques for communicating channel data regarding a channel plan are described herein. For example, a device may communicate a channel information element that includes a tag indicating a first operating context to which to apply channel data regarding a channel plan. The channel information element may also include a reference... Itron Inc

Hub and agent communication through a firewall

Hub and agent techniques allow safe command execution and data retrieval through firewall(s). In an example, cloud-based server of a company communicates with a plurality of agent applications operating on a remote customer's site. Using hub-and-agent techniques, cloud-based systems are able to direct the agents to perform functions for, and... Itron Inc

Efficient battery-powered modular meter

Techniques for the design and operation of an efficient battery-powered meter are described herein. A metrology unit of the meter may be at least partially located in the gas flow of a pipe, and measures gas flow rate data according to a static flow sensor. The metrology unit calculates raw...

Mounting device for acoustic leak detection sensors

A sensor unit to detect fluid movement and/or leakage from a pipe may be attached to a mounting device that is attached to a pipe by a clamp. The mounting device may be configured to transmit vibrations from the pipe and clamp to the sensor. The sensor unit may be... Itron Inc

Detection of electrical theft from a transformer secondary

Techniques for identifying electrical theft are described herein. In an example, a secondary voltage of a transformer may be inferred by repeated voltage and current measurement at each meter associated with the transformer. A difference in measured voltage values, divided by a difference in measured current values, estimates impedance at... Itron Inc

Intelligent receptacle

An intelligent receptacle (or receptacle device) enables individually monitoring and/or controlling consumption of utility service by one or more loads through a supply outlet that is associated with the receptacle device. A client device may enable a user to remotely control a provision of the utility service from the supply... Itron Inc

Secure customer key injection for build-to-stock systems

Techniques for manufacturing cryptographically-enabled network endpoints are described herein. In an example, an endpoint is provisioned with keys, which may include a revocation key, a command key, a recovery key and other cryptographic information. A buyer of the endpoint may send one or more keys to the manufacturer, and request... Itron Inc

Gas leak detection and location determination

A method of gas detection includes receiving, by a data collection device, reports of detected concentrations of a particular gas from one or more gas sensing devices having one or more associated gas sensors, receiving an alarm from a gas sensing device indicating a detected concentration greater than a predetermined... Itron Inc

Hardware cryptographic authentication

An example method of establishing an authenticated session between two communicating devices includes establishing, by a first processor of a first device, a secure connection with a second device over the network using a communications protocol; receiving, by the first processor, an identity authentication request from the second device; passing,... Itron Inc

Universal abstraction layer and management of resource devices

An example method of managing a resource includes receiving a request associated with one or more of at least one resource device from one or more other devices over a network; standardizing the request using standardization definitions that are universal across different types of resource devices and their associated drivers;... Itron Inc

Electrical phase identification

An electrical phase (e.g., a phase from among three-phase power) connected to an electrical meter may be determined. In one example of the techniques, changes in energy or power (e.g., a derivative or differences) may be determined based at least in part on measurements from each of a plurality of... Itron Inc

High data low latency communications with minimized power consumption

An endpoint device capable of communicating with a data collection device comprises a first communication subsystem for low data rate messaging, a second communication subsystem for high data rate messaging, and a controller in communication with the first and second communication subsystems, where the first communication subsystem may be used... Itron Inc

Multi-channel decoder architecture

An example method of receiving a data packet includes receiving a data packet at a channel receiver of at least one channel receiver each associated with a channel, providing the data packet to a data packet identification block that corresponds to the channel receiver, validating the data packet at the... Itron Inc

Collection of telemetry data through a meter reading system

Disclosed are apparatus and related methodologies for transmitting data related to utility conditions between monitoring locations and a central and/or data collection facility using a meter reading system. Collection of both corrected and uncorrected data from meters is achieved to thereby provide backup data in case of corrector failure. The... Itron Inc
