Abstract: To secure the communication reliability of an Integrated Meter Reading (IMR) network consisting of Broadband over Power Line (BPL) and wireless networks, the communication route may be changed between both networks automatically when the communication environment changes. This paper not only designed the Wireless Automatic Routing Mechanism (WARM) to create the wireless meter reading terminal route and communicate with the BPL terminal next to it but also verified the communication performance of the developed mechanism via a verification test. Such verification test revealed a meter reading success rate that was 11% higher than the existing BPL-based IMR system, which is not adopted WARM.
