UK Energy Milestone: Trilliant Smart Energy Network Connects 4.2 Million Smart Meters

By Ken Briodagh November 16, 2016

According to a recent release, Trilliant, a smart energy communications provider, has now connected more than four million smart devices in the UK, including gas meters, electric meters and in-home displays.

The Trilliant Smart Communications Platform connects consumers’ in-home displays and provides meter data to the retailer, delivering information each can use to manage energy efficiently.

“The milestone effectively demonstrates the benefits that energy retailers and their customers can gain from an investment in advanced metering paired with clear motivation to change energy use patterns,” said Andy White, CEO and president, Trilliant.

Trilliant was selected for its unifying platform, which allows multiple RF technologies -- including 5GHz SecureMesh WAN, 2.4GHz SecureMesh NAN, LTE/GPRS and 2.4GHz RPMA -- to communicate across the varied terrain and needs of the retailer's enterprise. Trilliant’s approach represents the energy industry’s only enterprise-wide communications platform based on a secure, standards-based, multi-technology, open spectrum solution. This means that it can manage and monitor today's needs and those of an increasingly interconnected future, bringing a strong ROI to energy suppliers in several ways.

It eliminates redundant costs for multiple vendors, redundant infrastructure, and multiple training programs; streamlines management of enterprise communications; enables IT/OT synergies; lays foundation for purpose-built analytics; has greater bandwidth to protect against obsolescence (with growing data load), and simplifies staffing, maintenance, updates, costs; and eliminates potential for incompatibilities of multiple patches.

Trilliant invests a significant percentage of its annual revenues back into digital innovation. Trilliant has been developing pioneering communications technologies for the British Gas deployment that will continue to evolve with the market.

Britain is making itself the global leader in connected and smart home technology, especially with respect to informing the energy infrastructure. The rest of the world would do well to emulate this model.
