The key to smart meter deployment in the millions is the dependency of installation of the AMI wireless communications network that provides a complete solution to collect meter reading data and also manages the smart devices and feeder meter asset
The total capital costs of deploying AMI include:

AMI hardware costs have declined by more than a fifth over the past decade. By 2005 - 06, the average hardware cost per meter was estimated to be $76. The capital costs related to communications infrastructure installations ranges from $125 - $150 per meter.
Benefits associated with AMI deployment can be broadly categorized as:
