Leading the Way: Itron + Cisco

Interoperable. Secure. Scalable. When Itron and Cisco joined forces, we had one goal in mind: to build the utility network infrastructure of today and tomorrow. And we’ve done exactly that. The right network is foundational to making cities smarter, utilities more insightful and communities more vibrant—and to making the most of the resources you have.

Redefining What’s Possible

Adaptive communications. Peer-to-peer connectivity. Distributed edge applications. We're redefining what’s possible for electricity, gas and water utilities and smart cities by turning the smart grid into the Active Grid.

The Need for Speed

With millions of devices communicating across a network, you need data in real time to be at your best. Networking technology from Itron, built upon our partnership with Cisco, gives you a reliable, secure and fast network that will help you make the most of your resources in the field and make sure your data is where you need it, when you need it.

The Gold Standard

The right networking technology opens the door to new applications and devices to make your utility, city and community more efficient than ever. But for those devices and applications to plug-and-play, you need a partner with open, interoperable standards that can unlock innovation and help make your operations more resourceful than ever before.
