Trilliant Launches Smart Meter System Operator Solution

By Ken Briodagh May 17, 2017

Trilliant, technology provider of the most widely used AMI solutions in the UK, has announced a Smart Metering System Operator (SMSO) managed service for energy retailers. The comprehensive service reportedly consists of an operations center and software managed by Trilliant with credit and prepayment meters by Landis+Gyr and in-home consumer access devices by Green Energy Options (GEO). The program will simplify and streamline deployment and management of SMETS1 smart meters for energy retailers in the UK.

“The SMSO solution combines technology, equipment and knowledge from world-class providers into an agile, easy-to-deploy solution that allows retailers to ensure a rapid rollout of customer smart meters in 2017 and beyond,” said Andrew White, chairman and CEO, Trilliant. “It's an ideal solution for small and mid-size energy companies who are looking for an available, non-resource intensive solution.”

The solution is designed to lower the setup and operating costs and provide a scalable and secure platform to manage credit as well as prepayment meters. The data center will assure smooth operation and quick issue resolution, the company said, since all critical elements of the solution are developed and managed by the service providers.

This SMSO offering enters the market ahead of the approaching 2020 deadline by which retailers must have smart meters operational in all 26 million homes in England, Wales and Scotland. With more than four million connected devices already, this solution is the most common in the UK. Using Trilliant's 30 years of expertise and various technology partnerships, security and scalability, the smart communications company has created a managed cloud-based service offering for the rapidly growing challenger provider market.

“With our combined expertise we will be able to deploy a solution that will help utilities across the country prepare for 2020 and continue to deliver quality expected by their customers,” said White.
