This paper describes the features of the GPRS platform and how the DNP 3.0 protocol is used to provide communication among devices. It explains why DNP 3.0 has been chosen as one of the most complete, versatile protocols for electric applications under a GPRS network and how combining the two decreases service costs, enhances efficiency and increases event transmission speed. By implementing the GPRS platform, C.A. La Electricidad de Caracas (EDC) was able to achieve significant savings, as compared to the previous platform, as well as multiple other technical benefits
