Ecologic Analytics and Landis+Gyr to Pre-Integrate Smart Metering Solutions
ATLANTA & BLOOMINGTON, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–September 27, 2011– Leading smart grid solutions providers, Ecologic Analytics and Landis+Gyr announce today that the companies are strengthening their already market-leading collaboration by moving to pre-integrate the Gridstream(TM) solution portfolio with the Ecologic Meter Data Management System (MDMS), using the next generation of the International Electrotechnical Commission — Common Information Model (IEC-CIM) 61968-9 (2(nd) Edition). A move that raises the bar for pre-integrating solutions based on international standards.
“Landis+Gyr and Ecologic Analytics have a longstanding relationship and proven history of collaborating for the success of utilities and their stakeholders,” said Jeffrey Carkhuff, vice president product management with Landis+Gyr. “Leading the industry with the next generation of the IEC-CIM, and streamlining solution delivery under the Gridstream brand are the right moves for our customers in a rapidly evolving and increasingly complex landscape.”
“Today’s development reflects our commitment to strengthening our product offering with the Gridstream solution set. Utilities are demanding production-ready smart meter and meter data management solutions with proven interoperability and performance being at the forefront of most procurement decisions,” said David Hubbard, co-founder and chief technology officer of Ecologic Analytics. “The meter data management system has proven to be a central component of any enterprise smart metering solution and pre-integrating it with the Gridstream smart meter solutions, using industry standards, enables utilities to derive long-term value from market leading technologies.”
For more than a decade, Ecologic Analytics and Landis+Gyr have partnered to integrate solutions. The ‘working relationship’ was formalized, when Landis+Gyr AG took a minority interest in Ecologic Analytics in late 2007. Since that time, the two companies have aligned product roadmaps, added joint customers and were the only smart meter and MDMS providers to participate in Electric Power Research Institute’s interoperability test of the IEC-CIM (1st Edition).
Landis+Gyr is the leading global provider of integrated energy management products tailored to energy company needs and unique in its ability to deliver true end-to-end advanced metering solutions. With annualized sales of more than US$1.5 billion, Landis+Gyr operates in 30 countries across five continents, and employs 5,000 people with the sole mission of helping the world manage energy better. www.landisgyr.com
