ABB joins Trilliant over smart grid.
ABB, the power and automation technology company, and Trilliant
Incorporated, a leader in delivering smart grid solutions that enhance
energy efficiency, utility operations, and renewable resource integration, recently announced successful interoperability of
Trilliant's SecureMesh communications network with ABB's
station automation and protection products, enabling utilities to choose
best-of-breed technologies for their smart grid rollouts. "The
smart grid is moving into a phase where distribution automation is
becoming critical, and this capability is largely dependent on the
reliability of high-bandwidth, low-latency solutions," said Gary
Rackliffe, ABB vice president, smart grids. "For this reason, we
are particularly excited to be working with Trilliant to integrate our
solutions and help deliver them to a growing market." The
demonstration is another indicator of the increasing capability within
the smart grid market and the power of standards-based technology
solutions available to today's forward-thinking utilities.
Trilliant's SecureMesh communications network is based on open
standards to ensure out-of-the-box interoperability with the leading
distribution automation equipment. The network infrastructure supports
applications ranging from electric meter data collection to low-latency
monitoring and control of distribution automation devices, including a
wide variety of station automation and protection products from ABB.
"The successful deployment of smart grid networks around the world
requires cooperation, innovation, and shared best practices," said
Andy White, president and CEO of Trilliant. "The demonstrated
interoperability of Trilliant's SecureMesh network with ABB's
automation products is another significant proof point in the maturation
of the smart grid." Interoperability of distribution protection,
control and automation devices was conducted using Trilliant's
SecureMesh Gateway and Connector WAN products.
