Trilliant, a global smart communications platform leader, today unveiled the newly-enhanced, multi-technology and multi-purpose Smart Communications Platform at DistribuTECH, North America’s largest annual smart grid conference and exhibition, to help utilities and cities deliver smart grid and smart city benefits.
Having worked with electric utilities and cities globally who collectively serve more than 100 million customers, Trilliant understands that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to infrastructure modernization. Each utility and city has different priorities, opportunities, challenges and regulatory environments.
Some may want to start with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) to improve operational efficiency and consumer engagement, while others want to start with distribution automation (DA) to enhance reliability. Still others, especially in developing countries, may want to start by better addressing non-technical losses and achieve revenue protection first.
Utilities may also approach deployments differently: some may prefer mass deployments while others want to start with targeted deployments first. No matter what the priorities and approaches are, many understand that it is important to put in the right Smart Communications Platform from the beginning, to immediately address their challenges today, while at the same time putting in the right foundation to enable other applications as needs evolve in the future.
The newly-enhanced Trilliant Smart Communications Platform is developed with this in mind. It is a multi-technology, multi-purpose Smart Communications Platform that addresses utilities’ needs today while giving them the options and flexibility for tomorrow.
For those utilities who want to focus on distribution automation first, Trilliant offers the high-bandwidth, low-latency, private 5.8 GHz WAN/FAN Mesh network suitable for advanced DA applications. For those utilities who want to deploy mass AMI deployments, Trilliant offers the private 2.4 GHz NAN Mesh network.
For those utilities operating in a highly-deregulated environments and prefer a public network, Trilliant also offers the globally-proven public cellular-based AMI network. To further provide utilities with even more options and flexibility, Trilliant recently added RPMA technology to its platform, best suited for targeted deployments or hard-to-reach areas.
The breadth and depth of the multi-technology, multi-purpose Trilliant Smart Communications Platform give utilities the most options and flexibility to choose the technology that best fit their priorities today while preparing them for the opportunities of tomorrow.
