Allegro AMI Fixed Network
Allegro™ is a branded suite of AMI communication technologies from Master Meter. Allegro helps address a problem that utilities often face when considering AMI – regardless of a particular utility’s nuances and deployment challenges, the same ‘one size fits all’ AMI radio choice is pushed by a vendor. It brings to mind the adage, ‘when you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail.’ We believe that a mix and match approach of different underlying communication technologies which share a common endpoint design is a highly efficient and cost-effective approach that delivers the greatest results.
That’s why we’ve developed a toolbox full of choices in communication tech. Allegro Licensed (ideal for densely populated areas), Allegro Cellular (ideal for remote areas or the entire city), Allegro IoT (a LoRa-based smart choice for smart cities), and Allegro SmartGrid (our GridLinx endpoint that piggybacks water meters onto the Landis & Gyr GridStream electric smart grid without additional infrastructure).
Keeping with our ConnectionFree™ tradition of AMI and AMR endpoints without connections or wires, we are excited by our latest residential ultrasonic meter with integrated licensed AMI inside – the Sonata Allegro. This meter combines the best of solid-state measurement with the best in FCC-licensed AMI.
Our Under-the-Glass (UTG) universal register endpoint offers a mix of integrated radio and connectivity solutions in a single environmentally tested body. Similarly, the same Allegro Pit and Wall endpoint bodies secure a mix of different radio technologies.
Patented Under-the-Glass (UTG) register delivers powerful AMI network results without wires or connections for simplified deployment
Allegro UTG is built on the Interpreter register platform to work with any competitor meter
The endpoint Smart Antenna™ automatically adjusts the RF signal if performance-robbing water is present (flooded pits).
The UTG register lowers long term ownership cost by reducing maintenance hassles, and speeds up the deployment process.
Allegro’s extensive geographic RF reach means more coverage in less deployment time, and reduced cost.
Full communication between the utility and the customer provides for in-demand reads, responsive alerts, and firmware upgrades.
Get an accurate understanding of Non-Revenue Water (NRW) with precisely synced consumption & production meter information.
Allegro’s exclusive time-sequenced architecture and AES 128 / 256 hardware and software encryption provides an optimal security posture.
Our minimized signal duration and communication structure produces less energy than a cell phone or microwave oven.
Combining best-in-class propagation, quality componentry, and an engineered implementation, Allegro excels in timely, reliable data.
On-demand consumption information is available in 15 minute increments for an enhanced understanding of usage.
Remote programming of endpoints, network diagnostics, and troubleshooting are all available from the utility office.
