We are a small electric utility that has Sensus AMI meters. We are brainstorming some ideas and want to see what other utilities have done to connect directly to their AMI meters from their GIS. We know about GeoEvent Server, but are wondering if there are other options out there? We would like to stay away from static data dumps. So some of our questions are...
1) Are there any other electric utilities using Sensus AMI Meters that have integrated their meters into their GIS to see meter activity live?
2) Is GeoEvent Server the only solution through ESRI to make that happen?
Any and all feedback is welcomed. Thanks!
