Use of wireless-enabled, networked “smart devices” is growing quickly across industry sectors. The machine-to-machine (M2M) communications these devices enable are empowering enterprises to maximize the efficiency of their business operations and react more effectively to emerging challenges.
The emergence of M2M networking has been particularly significant in the energy and utilities sector, where the use of digital smart meters is becoming all-but ubiquitous. For power grid operators, this shift to a smart grid paradigm creates the promise of greatly increased efficiency, reliability and visibility.
Any enterprise adopting the smart grid paradigm will face a range of serious integration, data transformation, security and compliance challenges. Specifically, data will need to be:
All of these challenges can be addressed by implementing Layer 7 Technologies’ award-winning SecureSpan SOA Gateway technology. SecureSpan’s policy-based SOA governance technology represents the ideal solution for efficiently routing, translating and securing high volumes of smart meter data.
The SecureSpan SOA Gateway provides everything utilities organizations need in order to:
