Modification Report Consultation – SECMP0067 ‘Service Request Traffic Management’ (Closing Date: 24 April 2020)

SECMP0067 ‘Service Request Traffic Management’

The Data Communications Company (DCC) Systems are limited by a finite capacity. As numbers of Smart Meters and Devices increase in the Smart Metering Implementation Programme (SMIP), this will increase the traffic of Service Requests in the DCC Systems. In exceptional instances this traffic, if left unchecked, could result in an overload of the DCC Systems and cause an outage, resulting in no Service Requests being sent from the Data Service Provider (DSP). The DCC has recommended management of the System, in order to prevent an outage without the expense of expanding the DCC infrastructure.
