Wireless Meter Bus (wM-BUS) is the extension of the meter Bus (M-BUS) with a wireless protocol and role scheme for handling communication over a standardized wireless communication interface between meters and data loggers – so called smart meter gateways (SMGW). This scheme is specified by the European standard EN 13757 and its sub-standards. The motivation of this standard is to allow an automated measuring and processing of data, track the usage of resources and to optimize provisioning in order to create an “Advanced Metering Infrastructure” (AMI).
Such Smart grid / meter devices are typically battery operated and in need for a long range and robust wireless communication. This is the reason for using the Sub GHz frequencies in the free ISM Bands. EN13757-4 is specifying radio options in the 169 MHz, 434 MHz or 868 MHz band, regarding to the region.
In between those frequencies there are different modes with different functions. In the table below you can see those specifications.
