    In today’s landscape of utility management, the contribution of Internet of Things (IoT) to smart grids has acquired extensive potential. IoT paves a way to virtually control every smart device in almost every domain of society. Contrariwise, the smart grid networks attracted the attention of the universal research community. The idea of merging IoT with smart grid together demonstrates enormous potential. In this work, we investigate the suitability of Wireless M-BUS communication protocol for possible adoption in remote metering by evaluating possible communication range and system stability in future housing estate represented by university campus made of steel and concrete – this living area acts well when it comes to wireless transmissions. Measurements were executed by means of constructed prototype sensor devices utilizing the frequency 868 MHz which is the frequency by far the most used by WM-BUS devices in Europe.
