San Diego, January 31, 2011 — Trilliant, a smart grid communications provider, and KORE Telematics, a digital wireless services provider, announced a partnership to deploy Trilliant’s CellReader and CellGateway meter communication solution across Tier 1 GSM and CDMA networks.
Under the partnership, KORE will also obtain device approvals for the CellReader under its One-Stop Device Accreditation Program.
Trilliant’s CellReader solution installs under-the-glass of solid-state C&I electric meters and provides two-way IP based communications over digital cellular networks.

The CellReader and CellGateway digital cellular communications products complement Trilliant’s industry-leading SecureMesh communications solution, which provide utilities with a private wireless mesh network for multi-tier smart grid applications.
KORE is at the forefront in accelerating and enabling innovations in the M2M world, including energy management solutions such as Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI).
