Atlanta, January 19, 2012 — Landis+Gyr announced the launch of their Series V next generation Gridstream smart grid technology aimed at providing utilities with a solution through an upgradeable platform capable of adapting to future applications and communication protocols — all without stranding existing assets.
Landis+Gyr's Gridstream Series V offering allows utilities to adopt an open, interoperable, and highly-secure smart grid solution that will deliver performance and reliability to the industry.
In addition, it provides a clear migration path for existing smart metering and distribution automation customers — compatible with today's Gridstream offering and upgradable to the next generation solution.
Smart grid networks enhance the efficiency and reliability of the electric grid by providing utilities with a dedicated data network that meets utilities' strict requirements to deliver power from traditional, renewable and distributed generation energy sources.
Gridstream provides the intelligence and connectivity to manage smart grid functions from the home to the grid to the utility office on a single secure network, providing utilities important monitoring and control points throughout their distribution networks.
