© 2015 IEEE. In order to deploy an Electrical Energy Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), Electrical Enterprises traditionally have to rent the infrastructure of a primary Mobile Network Operator (MNO). This paper presents a model for optimizing the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) infrastructure employed for the communication between the Central Office with the Smart Meters (SM). It is proposed a model which minimizes the cost of the primary network operator infrastructure and reduces the expenses of the secondary network operator while saves and facilitates the spectrum utilization. The algorithm employed in the optimization model searches the best scenario for the SM clustering with purpose of minimizing the distance among Cellular Base Stations. In this paper the Smart Meters (SM) are considered fixed data terminals placed in Neighborhood Area Networks (NAN) covered by the mobile communications network.
