Landis+Gyr's New IoT Platform Supports Multiple Communication Technologies

At DistribuTECH 2018Landis+Gyr has launched Gridstream Connect - a next-generation IoT platform for utility, consumer and smart city applications. 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 intelligence with 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.

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.
