The MTG-Mehrwert-Konnektor (value-added connector, MWK) can be used to control any IoT device via the CLS channel according to the BSI-TR-03109 regulations. The transparent CLS channel transports the control commands from the application via a (BSI-FNN-regulated) area to the IoT devices in both directions
Utility companies that want to control various IoT devices in the role of an "active EMT" via the CLS channel benefit from the standardized security processes in operation and certification. With this vendor-independent system, various business models can be successfully and cost-effectively implemented and operated according to the guidelines of the BSI and the FNN.
Following Use Cases are applicable:
- Implementing IoT business ideas quickly and cost-effectively (e.g. LoRa WAN applications)
- FNN-compliant control of EEG systems with an FNN control box
- Submetering projects / successful implementation of multi-segment metering
- Receiving high-resolution smart metering data and using it for value-added services
The system is multitenant and has an open interface. It is therefore available for almost every value added application possible.
In cooperation with MTG, a special CLS control unit was developed for Theben's CLS plug-in module. This enables all TCP/IP-capable IoT devices to be connected (MTG value-added module TCP/IP). The value-added module can be plugged onto the CONEXA 3.0 to save space. On other SMGW models, the value-added module is mounted in a separate housing on the DIN rail.
Thanks to its intelligent switching technology, virtually any device with an IP address can be connected and controlled. The "MTG value-added module TCP/IP" and the MTG Mehrwert-Konnektor can be quickly and easily connected to the Smart Meter infrastructure.
Fast integration of value-added applications
Innovative startups and application developers who need access to the SMGW infrastructure can use the free MWK development license. This enables the existing application to become "SMGW-Ready" with little integration effort.
MTG provides selected partners with a development system for connecting the value-added application as an SDK.
The SDK is delivered in the form of a preconfigured Linux server (PC) including a detailed interface description for a small protection fee.
If required, MTG can provide consulting support for the connection process. If necessary, MTG can also offer its own simple portal for demo purposes.
