Telvent and Trilliant Demonstrate Interoperability of Key Smart Grid Elements
Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, and Trilliant Incorporated, a leader in delivering Smart Grid solutions that enhance energy efficiency, utility operations, and renewable resource integration, today announced successful interoperability between Telvent’s suite of real-time monitoring and control solutions and Trilliant’s SecureMesh™ communications infrastructure. This validated integration will increase reliability and lower the cost of operating electric distribution networks.
Key to the success of widely deployed distribution automation and control devices is a high-bandwidth, low-latency network that can handle a variety of end points with real-time performance and security. Now, utilities can perform in a secure way and condition-based monitoring of those assets.
Together, the solutions enable utilities to advance automation of electric energy distribution towards a true Smart Grid. By developing the capability to use broadband-scale, fully integrated networks with a range of substation and beyond-substation devices, Trilliant and Telvent have simplified deployment and greatly reduced the cost of network monitoring and control.
“Distribution grid automation is a major component of a holistic Smart Grid system that spans the Enterprise,” said Andy White, President and CEO at Trilliant. “We’re excited to be working with Telvent to help utilities realize the next generation of Smart Grid technology.”
“This solution will increase the reliability and drive down the cost of owning and operating smart network devices,” said Manuel Sanchez, Telvent’s President and CEO. “With Trilliant networks running these devices, our customers can move their distribution grid automation to the next level.”
