Business Context and Use

The Utilities Connection Processing process component provides services for the utilities connection status change request in an A2A scenario to an external application. These cover the reconnection or disconnection of a utilities device.

An external application can be, for example, a meter data synchronization and unification system – MDUS.

Request messages are sent from the Utilities Connection Processing process component to application components (for example, Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)) to manage the utilities connection status. This allows smart meters to be controlled remotely using requests from the Utilities Connection Processing process component.

Notes on SAP Implementation

The target group must run the IS-U back-end application component to use the operations found in Utilities Connection Processing.
