Trilliant, a smart grid communications provider, unveiled on Nov. 3 the newly-enhanced SecureMesh platform to utilities in Europe and globally, in advance of European Utility Week (EUW) 2014, Europe’s largest annual smart grid conference and exhibition.
Building upon the company’s proven technology and expertise gained working with leading utilities globally who collectively serve more than 85 million customers, Trilliant aims to bring even more reliability, performance and flexibility to utilities and energy retailers worldwide with its newly-enhanced SecureMesh Platform.
Part of the powerful Trilliant Communications Platform, SecureMesh is a secure, multi-tier NAN/WAN wireless field area communications platform, pre-engineered to work seamlessly together and purpose-built for utility’s smart grid applications. High bandwidth and low latency provide the high reliability and superior performance necessary to enable utilities to successfully deploy any smart grid application – Distribution Automation, Smart Metering, Demand Side Management – on one powerful platform, today and tomorrow.
The Trilliant SecureMesh Platform is the only utility-grade field area network that has been proven at scale that can be deployed anywhere in the world. It is also the only Platform that has a pre-integrated, multi-tier architecture capable of supporting multiple advanced Smart Grid applications.
Trilliant understands that a particular utility’s smart grid business needs may differ from those of other utilities. For example, some utilities may seek to satisfy regulatory mandates while improving reliability and operational efficiencies. Others may seek to empower consumers to improve energy efficiency and offer value-added services. Still others may seek to integrate more intermittent renewables and distributed energy resources or be able to reduce non-technical losses. The newly-enhanced SecureMesh Platform offers utilities the widest range of options and flexibility to strategically and cost-effectively address today’s smart grid challenges while preparing for tomorrow’s smart grid opportunities without re-deploying their network.
“Utilities are being asked to do more with aging infrastructure,” said Andy White, Trilliant’s chief executive officer. “Trilliant’s deep heritage serving the utility industry enables us to provide solutions that address these needs. By combining advanced grid technologies and best-in-class communication networks, Trilliant’s newly-enhanced SecureMesh helps utilities future-proof their grid communication systems. They can effectively manage their smart grid needs today and prepare for other smart grid applications in the future.”
