ATLANTA, July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Landis+Gyr announces the release of
version 6.2 of its operating software, Command Center, for the Gridstream^®
advanced metering and grid management system.

The latest version supports new network management tools for routers and
collectors, improved monitoring of load-side meter voltage and remote service
switch operations, as well as scheduled "snapshots" of meter information, such
as temperature, to aid in diagnostics and analytics.

"This system update continues to address the needs of our Gridstream customers
by providing enhanced controls and monitoring functions across the system to
improve efficiency and security and gain added visibility across the network,"
said Lisa Washburn, Director of Software Product Management. "These features
are offered in addition to added support for new products and meters."

New features include:

  oLoad-side voltage monitoring and alarms that help utilities detect load on
    a disconnected meter for identification of a tamper condition.
  oEnhanced monitoring of remote service switch activity with the ability to
    define thresholds for a number of operations and scheduled maintenance.
  oAbility to specify exact time of snapshot readings of meter data for
    applications such as temperature monitoring, voltage analysis and
    coincident demand.
  oEnhanced network management capabilities via health indicators from the
    collectors and routers, and ability to return a variety of network
    statistic data for analysis.
  oMore granular control of firmware broadcast commands.

New products supported within Version 6.2 include the latest Gridstream
endpoints designed for the E331 and E351 FOCUS^® AXe and E650 S4x meter
offerings with enhanced performance features.

America, South America and Asia to manage Gridstream advanced metering network
technologies, including RF mesh, PLC and cellular. The 6.2 version release is
