The alliance claims advanced metering solution will help power and grid companies to improve customer experience and operation efficiency
Chinese telecommunications equipment and services provider Huawei and Oracle have entered what they describe as a ‘Power IoT Ecosystem Partnership’.
The companies have signed a memorandum to cooperate around the sale and marketing of the Huawei’s advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution with Oracle Utilities’ meter data management (MDM) and smart grid gateway (SGG) and related Oracle Utilities products.
The alliance will leverage Huawei’s information and communication technology products and solutions, in coordination with Oracle’s R&D, implementation and outsourcing capabilities in the utility sector. This will enable a robust end-to-end AMI solution helping power and grid companies to improve customer experience and operational efficiency, achieve energy saving and emission reduction, the partners claim.
“Oracle is looking forward to working together with Huawei in marketing, sales and technology to take the AMI solution into the target sectors,” said Stuart Shaw, senior regional director sales, Oracle Greater China. “Huawei along with Oracle’s utility and customer experience will jointly approach the customer opportunity and achieve a win-win business situation.”
Huawei’s AMI solution can manage smart meters, communications networks and head end systems using Oracle Utilities MDM, Oracle Utilities SGG, and Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing (CC&B) to support MDAS and customer systems.
Huawei and Oracle have previously completed integration testing for Huawei’s AMI solution head end system and Oracle Utilities’ MDM and SGG. Both parties used standard IT technology under open architecture to achieve interconnectivity.
Based on the success of the integration test and technology seminar, the companies have agreed to continued cooperation as they seek to boost global smart grid construction and leverage global knowledge around utilities’ maturity and direction.
“Huawei is very glad to establish a favorable cooperation relationship with Oracle in connected smart grid territory,” added Cong Peijin, managing director, Huawei Energy Solution. “We plan to increase strategic investment in solution construction, market expansion projects and joint marketing, conduct the cooperation deeply and consistently, and to finally achieve a win-win business situation.”
