Abstract: The paper focuses on the utilization of LTE-UMTS resources for communication or calls within Smart Grids to relay metering information or other data required. The LTE resource blocks (RBs) or UMTS codes are assigned to Smart Grid (SG) calls when they arrive in real time. The SG network relies on dynamic servers (mobiles or workstations) to store information sent to them. In this paper, each server will account for metering loads of five nearby meters. The proposed scheme aims to reduce the loading of the LTE-UMTS interface at the base station (BS) to increase call capacity. The proposed scheme is compared with related articles in literature in real time conditions. The calls (information) sent using LTE-UMTS provide fault detection and fast recovery, the server is usually serving five nearby domestic users. The metering information at servers will be available to domestic users and the electricity providers both. The result shows that using mobiles and PCs as servers reduces the load of BS and handle significantly larger number of SGs calls.
