This part of IEC 62056 provides information on the smart metering use cases and on architectures supported by the IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM series of standards specifying electricity meter data exchange. It describes the standardization framework including:
• the principles on which the standards shall be developed;
• the ways the existing standards shall be extended to support new use cases and to accommodate new communication technologies, while maintaining coherency;
• the aspects of interoperability and information security.
It also provides guidance for selecting the suitable standards for a specific interface within the smart metering system.
Other aspects of metering covered by TC13, like metrological requirements, testing, safety and dependability are out of the scope of this Standard.
