This Standard defines a Table structure for utility applicationdata to be passed between an End Device and any other device. Itneither defines device design criteria nor specifies the languageor protocol used to transport that data. The Tables defined in thisStandard represent a data structure that shall be used to transportthe data, not necessarily the data storage format used inside theEnd Device.
The Utility Industry has a need for a Standard that provides aninteroperable "plug-and-play" environment for field meteringdevices. The purpose of this Standard is to define the frameworkand data structures for transporting Utility End Device data to andfrom End Devices and for use by enterprise systems.
This Standard is intended to accommodate the concept of anadvanced metering infrastructure, such as that identified by theOffice of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability of the U.S.Department of Energy; the Smart Metering Initiative of the OntarioMinistry of Energy (Canada); and the stated requirements ofMeasurement Canada for the approval of a metering device for use inCanada.
This Standard is to provide a uniform, structured, and adaptivedata model, such that Utility End Devices and ancillary devices(e.g., home appliances and communication technology) can operate ina "plug-andplay" and multisource enterprise Advanced MeteringInfrastructure (AMI) environment.
This Standard extends the definitions provided by IEEE Std1377-1998 to include provisions for enterprise-level assetmanagement, data management, and uniform data exchange capability,through the use of common and managed Extensible Markup Language(XML)/Table Definition Language (TDL) and XML/Exchange DataLanguage (EDL) End Device Class models.
