Smart meter wars: Battle moves to interoperability
from Smart Grid News
In the early days, meter vendors focused on functionality, building systems that deliberately walled off competitors. Today, the battle is shifting as we enter into the open standards phase. Utilities are beginning to demand plug-and-play compatibility. Itron gets this. Itron partnered with Cisco in September 2010 to define an IP-based, open standards communications platform. Elster gets it, too.
