Simplify Smart Grid with SOA Gateways

Securely integrate smart grid technology to maximize power grid efficiency and reliability

Securely integrate smart grid technology to maximize power grid efficiency and reliability

 

Recently, the energy and utilities industry has been transforming itself to capitalize on the opportunities presented by smart grid technology. The digital and wireless capabilities of smart meters bring the promise of greater efficiency, reliability and visibility into the operation of the power grid. However, they also introduce vulnerabilities and technical challenges.

Some SOA Gateways are able to address key smart grid challenges by:

  • Easing integration through translation of network protocols and data formats
  • Protecting connectivity through access control, encryption and digital signatures
  • Optimizing traffic flow with high-throughput, high-concurrency message processing

Energy and utilities companies have already started to take advantage of SOA Gateways in smart grid patterns. Layer 7’s SecureSpan SOA Gateway is the industry leader and offers unparalleled smart grid functionality. SecureSpan can support all Gateway needs and maximize smart grid benefits for companies across the energy and utilities sector.
