What is Parse and Correlate?
Parse and correlate ensures critical service request messages sent to meters are understood correctly by the DCC and associated messages passed back to our customers can be read by their systems.
Delivering critical messages
The software allows customers to confirm that the content of any critical service requests sent to Smart Metering Devices, such as smart meters and Communications Hubs submitted in XML, is substantively identical (‘Correllate’) to the content of the associated command created by the DCC and returned to the User in a Home Area Network (HAN)-ready format, so that the returned command can be approved by the User for sending to the device.
Ensuring responses are received
The software also converts the relevant content of all Service Responses and Device Alerts sent from Smart Metering Devices from the HAN format into a standard XML format (‘Parse’) to enable the contents to be read by User systems.
