Silver Spring Networks has completed Wi-SUN Alliance certification for the IEEE 802.15.4g PHY supported across its Gen4 product portfolio.

The Wi-SUN Alliance certification regimen helps ensure the conformance of and interoperability between IEEE 802.15.4g implementations, according to the company.

The certification helps the company to establish open, standards-based smart utility networks for customers to leverage.

Silver Spring Networks Products executive vice president Anil Gadre said, ”Open standards are critical to helping ensure interoperability, speeding deployment times, reducing cost and risk, and accelerating innovation as our customers build out the next generation of massive-scale machine-to-machine (M2M) networks.”

IEEE 802.15.4g is a global standard that harmonizes the physical layer of an array of deployed wireless infrastructure systems, and also specifies standard power levels, data rates, modulations, and frequency bands for the large scale, outdoor and topographically challenging environments of smart energy networks

The Wi-SUN Alliance is an association of companies working together to enable reliable, cost-effective, low-power, wireless utility products based on open global standard IEEE 802.15.4g.
