Rockville, Md., October 5, 2011 — Telvent announced that its alignment with Microsoft has created more efficient and cost-effective smart grid solutions for utility companies.
This creates an opportunity for utilities to gather business critical information from multiple systems, which can then be easily integrated into their network. Utilities benefit from this functionality by gaining information that can be shared efficiently company-wide.
By allowing for open technology and easy integration of Microsoft and Telvent products, SERA allows utilities to navigate rapidly changing smart grid dynamics and create a secure network. This functionality is scalable, so it can be implemented by utilities of all sizes and easily expands to meet growing needs. The end result is an integrated network that not only maximizes network efficiencies, but also creates a lower total cost of ownership for utilities.
Telvent is leveraging the SERA framework within its own technology offerings for the smart grid industry including distribution management, SCADA, outage management, geographical information systems, and meter data management. Additionally, Telvent serves on the SERA advisory council, which focuses on turning mass amounts of data into meaningful information.
