Silver Spring unveils new DSM and distribution automation solutions

Jan 30, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Silver Spring Networks, a networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks, has extended its smart energy platform with new demand side management, or DSM, and distribution automation solutions, and expanded the tools, services and membership of its broad partner ecosystem.

Silver Spring has reportedly connected more than 13 million homes and businesses worldwide with its IPv6 networking platform. Silver Spring is now extending its IPv6 networking platform to establish a communications and monitoring foundation for a variety of Smart City solutions as more devices become connected to the Everything Network.

"Silver Spring's open IPv6 networking platform enables utilities to unlock more value from their smart grid investments through the rapid deployment of many next-generation applications such as high-precision Demand Response, transformer monitoring, automated analytics and more," said Scott Lang, Chairman, President & CEO, Silver Spring Networks.

Silver Spring expanded its Demand Side Management (DSM) portfolio with the introduction of the new UtilityIQ Demand Optimizer solution, a Demand Response Management System that helps utilities manage peak load, implement real-time demand response initiatives, and optimize load across all DR programs and customer segments.

Silver Spring's DSM portfolio helps utilities who are looking to DSM programs and technologies to increase customer satisfaction, meet regulatory requirements, reduce peak consumption, manage new sources of demand and generation, and improve their bottom lines.

Silver Spring further extended its Distribution Automation (DA) portfolio by unveiling a new Transformer Monitoring solution providing utilities real-time visibility into the performance of their distribution and substation transformers. Real-time transformer-level monitoring of temperature, current, and voltage enables utilities to pinpoint problem spots on the grid, proactively minimizing outages, and identify both technical and non-technical losses, improving energy efficiency.

Silver Spring's DA offerings also include advanced fault location grid sensors, secure IPv6-based bridges, a turn-key Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) solution, a power monitoring application, and network automation software. Silver Spring is reportedly delivering new tools and services to speed integration testing for partners.
