NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

About prepaid metering
Prepaid metering refers to paying for electricity before it is used. The consumer buys credit and then uses services until the credit expires. The concept of prepaid metering has been there for decades, but the major make shift took place in the 1980s by introduction of electronic or numeric credit transfer. A traditional prepaid metering system functions on three levels. The first level is the meters installed at the consumption point, the next level is vending stations situated at the utilities, and the top level is the master client, which ensures a database for reporting and provides administration, financial, and engineering control. The communication link between the vending stations and meters is in the form of a token, which is used to top up the credit in the meter.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global prepaid metering market to grow at a CAGR of 11.3% during the period 2014-2019.
