Wireless M-Bus / OMS-Training


Open Metering System Group (OMS-Group) is an association of 54 companies from 12 European countries and China. Until today, the OMS Standard has grown to the Standard for Smart Metering in Europe. The specification being worked out by the OMS-Group is the base of rework of the European standard EN13757. It is therefore part of the Smart Metering Mandate M/441 of the European Union. It is also mandatory for the communication of meter devices inside an LMN according to the Technical Rule TR 03109 of the protection profile Smart Metering by the “Bundesamt für Sicherheit und Informationstechnik” (BSI).

Therefore it is important to stay tuned, monitor developments and collect detailed Know-How. Already for years, the experts of STACKFORCE GmbH are actively participating in the OMS Group in different working groups. Furthermore, STACKFORCE has been developing an OMS compatible protocol stack, which has been licensed by practically all leading semiconductor manufacturers and therefore serves as a golden standard.

Learn in a two-day course directly by the developers and system architects!
