STS joins African Utility Week as industry partner
“Event’s 16 year history has its roots in the metering sector”
AA – The global prepaid meter standards industry organisation, STS (Standard Transfer Specification), has joined the leading power and water conference and trade expo African Utility Week as an industry partner. STS will hold its AGM during the event in Cape Town in May and also run a free technical workshop on its improved KMC (Key Management Centre) features.
Franco Pucci, technical advisor for the STS Association says “the interest in the STS specification in and beyond South Africa continues to increase as the industry pursues electrifying many millions of home. Our innovative edge has been the cornerstone of the success of prepayment in South Africa over the past 20 years, and, since its inception in this country, all over the world. Our working groups have been working on the requirements for the new KMC (Key Management Centre), which will be launched at African Utility Week 2016.”
He adds: “the new KMC has many advanced features from high vending key security using state of art algorithms, to easier coding of security modules and it also supports key rollover. The new KMC has reduced risk when it comes to key validity period, which will assist in reducing the occurrence of ghost vendors.”
