Arizona Public Service has selected KORE Telematics to provide wireless communications services as part of the large scale expansion of the utility’s automated metering infrastructure (AMI). APS has contracted with Elster Integrated Solutions for 800,000 new meters, all of which rely on the KORE M2M network for two-way cellular data communications.
