EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The report relates to the research conducted in the current situation of utility industry in Pakistan and how
Mobilink can diversify. This report gives recommendations for increasing awareness in government sector to
introduce smart meters in Pakistan
Revenue of utility companies in Pakistan are above 10 billion USD. Mobilink can provide it infrastructure on
revenue shared model / rental basis. It will help in soaring Mobilink profits and also will open ne streams of
businesses.
Various telecom operators in the Europe and America are already providing such services to utilities companies,
Verizon , O2, Telefonica to name a few.

For broadband and telecommunications service providers, the smart grid represents a compelling opportunity to
differentiate their service packages and create new revenue streams with home automation and energy
management services. With the smart grid, broadband providers can further extend their reach inside the home
with innovative, practical applications that improve everyday life by enabling homeowners to monitor and control
their home appliances. This whitepaper educates telecommunications and broadband service providers on the
concepts and latest developments in the smart grid, with particular focus on the Home Area Network (HAN), and
the technologies used to communicate among the utility, smart meter, smart appliances, and homeowner. This is a
critical time to keep an eye on developments in the smart grid, and service providers should be well prepared to
take advantage of smart grid applications in the near future

ADVATAGES OF CHOOSIN G FOR OPERATOR OR WH AT MOBILINK CAN PROV IDE

Cellular WAN solutions offer a number of advantages for Smart Metering deployments. First, when a utility
chooses cellular communications, they can rely on the mobile operator to provide the network instea d of
having to bear the cost of deploying, operating, and maintaining the entire communications infrastructure
themselves. By outsourcing the communications network to a mobile operator, energy suppliers can radically

reduce both installation costs and implementation times for the ir Smart Metering projects . In addition, mobile
operators increasingly view machine - to - machine (M2M) communications as an important and growing
subscriber market and are implementing new service offerings and billing approaches to compete for this business.
As a result, data rates for WAN - based Smart Metering communications are now extremely competitive.Todays
cellular coverage also extends literally everywhere, covering approximately 99 percent of the addressable
population for Smart Metering infrastructures. Indeed, most areas are covered by multiple cellular networks,
allowing utilities to deploy Smart Meters using the best cellular network available depending on location, and
maintain backup network capabilities.Finally, c ellular WAN is now a proven technology that is more than capable
of supporting Smart Metering infrastructures. Cellular technology has existed for more than 20 years, and the
security and flexibility of wireless communications is no longer debated. In fact , 1 billion machines already use
cellular networks today, and data communication (typically IP - based) now makes up 20 percent of all cellular
communications worldwide.

INFRASTRUCTURE

In developing a mobile network, operators have core competences that are essential to their business that are
easily transferred into supporting utilities services:- Network security High availability and resilience in disaster
situations User Authentication Billing, customer care and CRM Subscription and Device management These
are essential aspects of managing customers and their devices on
