AMT-SYBEX, leading software supplier to the Utility Industries in the UK and Ireland, today announced that Kaifa, a Chinese global smart meter manufacturer, has signed an agreement to integrate Affinity Meterflow®, the Meter Data Management (MDM) application, into Kaifa’s advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution for global customers.

“We are delighted to work in partnership with AMT-SYBEX. Their Meterflow product will enable us to supply Smart Grid MDM system solutions to our customers, maintaining our position as a global key player within the Smart Meter and System Solutions arena.”
