This is the first time i am using this types of sites to find out my required expertise on preparing communication software.
Our company is a technical service provider for telecom and power distribution sector. We need a simple, reliable and stable software solution for about 500 energy meters installed in the field(Consumer premises) The number of meter would be 350 but will not exceed more than 500 pieces.
I need a simple web based energy management software for online energy meter monitoring and data collection at remote desktop server. Total Number of 3 phase digital energy meter installed in the field = 400 to 500 meters. All the meters have inbuilt wifi modem and the places where wifi not available, a wifi to 3G converter will be used with the meter in field.
I cant use any big server like oracle or else. Since the number meters will be limited within 500 (Max) meters, I want to use a high configuration desktop PC as my server. All the meters in the field will be connected with the remote desktop and the operator will be able to monitor the meters online in real time and to collect data through internet from the installed meters.
There having several energy meters of Chinese suppliers and i have option to use any meters from a big lists for which software making will be easy. There is a meter from a Chinese supplier who is providing mobile phone apps free to monitor and collect data from his meter online. He has no PC software. I need the software for that specific meter and as said free android & iPhone apps are available, i can provide the apps if needed to make the PC software.
