Landis+Gyr launches Gridstream Connect
Landis+Gyr has announced the launch of Gridstream Connect – a next-generation IoT platform for utility, consumer and smart city applications – at DistribuTECH 2018.
Gridstream Connect is built to seamlessly and securely integrate smart devices using a variety of communication protocols and vendors. This enables utilities to push sensor technology to the grid edge for smart community and smart home applications, while preparing for changing distribution strategies.
Built on an IPv6-enabled architecture, Gridstream Connect features support for multiple communication technologies – such as RF Mesh, LoRa and cellular – under a single network. This provides greater options for utilities to deploy layered intelligencewith connected computing power at the grid edge, at the community level and across the distribution system. Networked meters, sensors and devices can run applications and interface autonomously with third-party devices and software platforms to control streetlights, EV charging stations, solar invertors and environmental sensors, along with an array of distribution assets.
