For Customers upgrading from the 3.3 release of the RNI to RNI 4.1, or are considering doing so in the near future, the following information is provided.
1. Where to Start – The 4.1 Introductory Series
The Introductory Series familiarizes the student with the basics of the FlexNet communication network, and its components and applications. While upgrading customers may already be familiar with the information covered in the FlexNet and RNI overview modules, focus should instead be on the Device Manager and Roles and Responsibilities modules. Experiencing the Roles and Responsibilities module provides an understanding of the organization of Sensus’ core role-based education.
2. Delta Modules
For customers upgrading from a 3.3 version, the current Delta modules provide a general understanding of the differences, and summarize the changes and features between RNI releases. Delta content includes descriptions of new features, application changes, and any relevant procedures for performing new tasks associated with the release. In addition, Job Aids within the 4.1 release are also available to assist in transitioning tasks from the legacy interface and MDMIF commands to RNI 4.1.
Delta 3.3 to 4.1
3. System Administrator & Operator Role-Based eLearning
And finally, upgrading customers may look at easily accessible eLearning modules that serve as the foundation for Sensus’ customer role-based training. In the Sensus core training, person(s) responsible for monitoring and maintaining their Utility’s FlexNet are shown what specific tasks should be performed regularly, and what application functionally helps them achieve these tasks. Sensus refers to these persons as FlexNet Administrators and Operators. Therefore, by reviewing the tasks associated with these roles of monitoring and maintaining a FlexNet solution, experienced customers can see even more of the changes found in RNI 4.1.
