As the Smart Grid evolves, utilities will ask their communication networks to do more and more beyond just meter reading – distribution automation, customer communication and other applications. That’s why Itron is working with its key partners such as Cisco to architect communication networks with the future firmly in mind, ensuring that Itron solutions support open standards, that they’re secure, and that they’re scalable and adaptable to meet future requirements as they emerge.
Our smart grid technology provides 100% utility service territory coverage through seamless integration of multiple communication technologies such as RF, GPRS, Fiber, PLC, and BPL communications, as well as broadly accepted standards such as IPV6.
The ability to offer interoperable, secure solutions based on specific customer needs is due, in part, to Itron’s broad partner ecosystem in the communications, software, and customer-facing industries.
