Grid Net has released the next generation of its Machine-to-Machine Network Operating System for the smart grid and applications — Advanced Metering, Demand Response Load Control, Distribution Monitoring & Control, and Premise Area Networking.
“The Grid Net Machine-to-Machine Network Operating System is purpose-built to take advantage of the three biggest trends reshaping our industry today: the move to leverage cellular data networks, the push to deploy more and higher value applications, and the need to do flexible deployments that show immediate returns and deliver lasting value,” said John W. Combs, chairman and CEO of Grid Net.
Cellular data networks — ubiquitous, reliable, and highly-capable — are the ideal communications infrastructure for the distribution grid. Grid Net's efficient and optimized use of network resources ensures that communications costs are only pennies per device per month. Security and data privacy are core strengths of the Grid Net Platform, and are preserved at all times on both public and private networks.
Grid Net enables utilities to securely deploy Advanced Metering, Demand Response Load Control, Distribution Monitoring & Control, and Premise Area Networking applications. Not only do multiple applications work in concert on each device, they also work in unison across the entire grid.
