Abstract? There is an increasing interest in making utility services, more efficient, reliable, safe and with enhanced control so as to meet the challenges and requirements of modern days. The solution to this is identified in terms of intelligent utility network popularly called Smart Grid. However, to achieve the goals of smart grid set-up of Advance Metering Infrastructure (AMI) incorporating advanced two-way communication and distributed computing capabilities is essential. A lot of ideas and techniques concerning to AMI have been proposed and attempted, however there was no unique and generally accepted protocol for a long time. DLMS/COSEM has emerged out as one of the most widely accepted standards that are closest to meet the needs of AMI. In the paper, basic functionalities expected from an AMI have been identified and required system architecture is discussed. Overview of the DLMS/COSEM standard is presented with detailed discussion on communication profile proposed in it. Various communication technologies that can be used for various interfaces in AMI are proposed and their characteristics are reviewed.
