Competitive Landscape
ICSA’s competitors meet the requirements through a fragmented approach. Different manufacturers use proprietary protocols and provide product specific solutions suiting their equipment and not an industry standard open protocol to consolidate a uniform solution. There are no competitors for the IAMRs as on date. Hence, the prices can not be compared. However, a few modem manufacturers are in the market. The ICSA’s prices are equal to or lesser by around 10% depending on the quantities. ICSA has effectively developed a platform whereby it can leverage on the skills in the Power metering space and serve other explosive growth platforms like Oil pipelines etc. Also, its proposed solution for Oil & Gas pipelines has no competitor till now.
 
Uniqueness of the Technology - Key Differentiation Point
ICSA developed niche technology to service Power sector. The technology can make use of various communication options. The products can communicate using GSM (Data call / SMS / GPRS) / PSTN (Dial up / Leased line) / RF / PLCC methods. The GSM platform ensures low OPEX and high expandability. Also no additional equipments like telephone lines/towers & big antennas are required. The platform is easily scalable to thousands and lakhs of units, without any major restriction on the available communication network. The technology also involves minimal to no human interaction: only specific and required data is received at the base station as per the pre-programmed intervals.
Easy configuration and flexible logics building
Logic implemented in these products is easily configurable. The logic can be modified in the meter functionality as per the requirements of the DISCOMs by changing the firmware, which is not possible with the existing meter manufacturers.
Remote programming
The functional modifications of the product if any at the customers’ premises can be done by remote programming of the firmware from the central station.
Intelligence built-in for all types of existing meters
These products function irrespective of the type or make of the energy meters existing in the field. Depending on the type of meter, the corresponding commands will get activated and the data will be collected and reported to end user.
The products are characterized by low turnaround time where any customer specific modifications can be executed on a very short notice.
