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.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
