Title: PORTABLE COMMUNICATION GATEWAY FOR UTILITY METERING DEVICES
Abstract:
A communication gateway communicates with a utility meter and a meter servicing device. The communication gateway includes a one-way processing module to process communications received from a one-way utility meter and includes a two-way processing module to process communications received from a two-way utility meter. For communications from a one-way utility meter the communication gateway may decode a signal received from the meter to obtain only certain information. For example, metering information may be extracted from the signal, but a spreading sequence may not be decoded.
