Frequently Asked Questions

Kalki.io Metering headend is a scalable data acquisition platform for reading energy meter consumption data and for billing systems, energy management systems, smart grid, and smart metering applications.
The platform has inbuilt support for various industry-standard open metering protocols like DLMS/ COSEM, Modbus, etc. In addition, the platform also provides protocol drivers for a set of meter specific protocol adaptors for legacy or non-standard meters.
Kalki.io not only has meter data collection support but also other smart metering functions such as metrology configuration, bill settings such as billing cycle, time of use (TOU) tariff, connect/disconnect, load limiting which are required for smart metering.
Kalki.io can be used to configure meters such as protocol settings, security settings, keys etc. Also capable of synchronizing meter time remotely and updating the meter firmware update over the air (OTA).
Kalki.io protocol driver is flexible and adaptable for most of the use cases prevailing in the industry. It can be configured to collect data on a periodic basis by request (pull-based) or configured for listening to the data pushed by the meter or as both depending upon data. For periodic polling, there is a gap-fill poll algorithm built in the platform which identifies if the data gaps and requests for those data during idle time.
Yes, Data collected by Kalki.io can be shared with on-premise or cloud-based applications over standard REST API interfaces.
Kalki.io platform supports inbound connection from field meters, cellular modems or routers. Meters under each connection can be identified using IP address, meter serial number, consumer number, or any other parameters using device-specific interfaces adaptors built in the platform.
Kalki.io can collect data from data concentrators as well. Kalkitech edge gateway software called SyncConnect can be used at the edge for data-concentration for collecting data from meters connected locally over various last-mile technologies and protocol and sharing the collected meter data with kalki.io on standard DLMS format. Kalki.io can also be integrated with third-party data concentrators over REST/ Web-sockets/MQTT /JSON as well.
Kalki.io has models for cloud-based deployment and on-premises deployment. You can choose the model suitable for your requirement. Contact sales@kalkitech.com for more details. which available as a subscription.
