Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Trilliant with 2015 Global DA Company of the Year Award

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — June 9, 2015 — Based on its recent analysis of the distribution automation and smart grid industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Trilliant with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award. Trilliant is a leading global smart grid platform company that helps utilities globally achieve their smart grid goals. Its pioneering management and workforce have consistently developed best-in-class solutions, including a smart communication platform that is well ahead of its peers in terms of performance, which includes bandwidth capacity, latency and security.

Trilliant offers a robust and proven multi-tier, multi-purpose Smart Communications Platform to enable utilities to securely and reliably deploy any Smart Grid applications – Distribution Automation, Advanced Metering Infrastructure and Demand-Side Management – and Smart City applications today and tomorrow. The Trilliant’s mesh-type architecture ensures high reliability and minimal interruptions, unlike other point-to-multipoint architecture that could cause power interruptions across the area.

Trilliant’s management team clearly understands that the diverse consumer needs across the globe are based on countries’ market dynamics; however, there is great similarity in their demand for reliability, quality, scalability, and higher bandwidth to ensure that the solutions are future-proof. In response, Trilliant has developed an industry-leading Smart Communications Platform that has the capability to integrate all the market-leading technologies, including broadband mesh, RF mesh AMI, cellular AMI, and others, into a common platform. Such a unified, multi-purpose, and multi-functional platform enables utilities to leverage one powerful platform for all of their applications – from Smart Grid applications such as Distribution Automation, Smart Metering, Demand-Side Management, to Smart Cities and future Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Offering such a client-centric, revolutionary multi-technology platform with open standards will enable Trilliant to become one of the major participants in the smart grid industry in the coming years.


“Its provision of a unified, client-centric, revolutionary, multi-technology platform with open standards will enable Trilliant to become one of the major participants in the smart grid industry in the future,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Rajalingam A C.


Meanwhile, Trilliant identified the demand for advanced cyber security solutions for enhancing the reliability and security of the nation’s electric grid infrastructure, which entailed large bandwidth. In line with this market requirement, Trilliant developed a platform with the globally-available 2.4 GHz unlicensed bandwidth, creating wider headroom for addressing customers’ evolving needs. Significantly, Trilliant’s solution delivers a much higher level of performance and bandwidth than oters at very competitive prices.


Besides, utilities often look to use a smart communication platform for one application and extend its use to other applications as well in order to minimize ownership costs. Trilliant is ideally positioned to offer a superior ownership experience at a competitive rate through its proven Smart Communication Platform.


“It is my pleasure to recognize Trilliant with the 2015 Company of the Year Award for its innovative and market-centric approach to infrastructure modernization,” observed Rajalingam. “Among the many companies in the sector, Trilliant’s winning approach has positioned it as the pioneer in this space and we look forward to Trilliant’s continued innovation to provide the best-in-class Smart Communications Platform to this industry.”


“The Company of the Year Award is the most prestigious Award that Frost & Sullivan bestows on any company because it reflects excellence in growth, innovation and leadership. We are thrilled to recognize Trilliant for its visionary leadership in the smart grid industry, exemplified by its focus on driving business performance by innovating for the future,” said Frost & Sullivan Global President and Managing Partner Krishna Srinivasan.


With its robust and proven Smart Communications Platform, Trilliant continues to help leading utilities and cities around who collectively serve more than 85 million customers realize their “Smart” visions and deliver real benefits. Trilliant’s unified, multi-purpose, multi-technology platform gives utilities and cities the simplicity of one platform with the flexibility of multiple technologies, built with open standards and with broad industry support – providing utilities and cities a low-risk path towards smart grid and smart cities. Trilliant has also built a strong ecosystem of industry partners to enable utilities and cities to leverage the company’s best-of-breed Smart Communications Platform and have the most flexibility and options to choose best-of-breed application and analytics partners.


“Trilliant is honored to have been recognized by Frost & Sullivan. We recognize the strategic importance of the smart energy and smart city sectors globally,” said Andy White, CEO, Trilliant. “We look forward to continuing to work with our customers and partners to deliver tangible benefits to their operations, customers and societies globally.”




Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation. The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products and technologies, and the resulting leadership in terms of customer value and market penetration.
