To achieve better service and smarter, streamlined processes, energy providers require reliable, real-time access to data. NXP® products help data concentrators or energy gateways create the necessary infrastructure to gather data from different sensors and utility meters, upload it to the central utility server, and show it to the user. The energy gateway synchronizes time and date data of utility meters to the central utility server and enables secure data transfer of user authentication and encryption information.
Communication to sensors uses RF technology such as ZigBee, Sigfox, and Bluetooth Low Energy.
The Cryptographic Accelerator and Signaling Processing Engine with RAMsharing
(CASPER) peripheral provides acceleration to asymmetric
cryptographic algorithms as well as to certain signal processing algorithms
