Silver Spring Networks Inc., a networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks, has released the SilverLink sensor network. The company says SilverLink offers a new approach to organizing, programming and using any data from any sensor network to fuel any application.

According to Silver Spring, the SilverLink sensor network helps enable utilities and other network operators connect real-time data to business processes. The solution, the company adds, is able to leverage both Silver Spring and non-Silver Spring networks and includes real-time voltage assessment, load disaggregation, remote temperature monitoring of grid devices and advanced customer engagement programs that reach across utility silos via a common platform.

SilverLink connects network infrastructure, other advanced metering infrastructure and back-office data sources, Silver Spring notes, and will be available as a cloud-based subscription service.

The company plans to make a wide array of new applications readily available to utilities, sensor network operators and consumers through a SilverLink App Store. The app store will include existing SilverLink applications and new applications from Silver Spring and members of its partner community as they come to market.
