Innovari and Trilliant have completed interoperability testing of the Innovari Interactive Energy Platform and the Trilliant Smart Communications Platform to help utilities optimize grid performance.

The Innovari Interactive Energy Platform enables utilities and their customers to become allies in improved grid performance, affordable and reliable energy, and environmental improvement.

The Trilliant Smart Communications Platform provides a highly secure, reliable and high performing two-way communications network, and perfectly complements Innovari’s Interactive Platform, to deliver deep grid situational awareness.

This will allow dynamic, real-time verifiable demand side management; grid system optimization; renewable and distributed energy resources integration; customer empowerment and engagement; and more.

Innovari CTO Jim Tillet said: "Our industry-leading grid optimization solutions work best on a secure, highly-available and reliable communications network that delivers high-performance bandwidth.

"By working with Trilliant, we can help our utility customers leverage their investment in a powerful communications network that is easy to integrate and unlock the true value of our solutions."

Trilliant Networks senior vice president David Kranzler said: "A central theme to the smart grid is choosing the communications network that offers not only superior performance today, but also the flexibility for future applications.

"We are excited to collaborate with Innovari to offer our utility customers yet another best-of-breed smart grid solution that will help them deliver real benefits to their operations and customers."
