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.
