Smart meters need to communicate with appliances, consumers, and utilities, and a standardized protocol doesn’t exist. That’s where GridRouter comes in. I read more about this smart grid issue and I found a lot of Smart meters!
I assured you’ll probably see GridRouter’s headed to your neighborhood sometime soon—as we discussed when SmartSynch first announced its plans for a so-called universal communications model, the GridRouter has the potential to future-proof the smart grid
IP-based public wireless networks enable utilities to strategically and rapidly deploy more secure and scalable smart grid solutions with minimal capital expenditures. IP networks and solutions may be remotely upgraded to interface with new technologies, since they are built upon open standards and leverage existing programs and tools. SmartSynch’s IP-based Smart Grid communications infrastructure encourages rapid application innovation and delivery of new functionality by allowing the broadest spectrum of ecosystem participants to focus on providing maximum benefits to utilities and their customers.
