Silver Spring Networks Inc., a networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks, has partnered with analytical software solutions provider Detectent Inc.

Silver Spring says the alliance is part of the expansion of its partner ecosystem around the SilverLink Sensor Network, which unlocks smart grid big data.

Detectent's solutions, being offered through Silver Spring's SilverLink app catalog, will leverage SilverLink Sensor Network data to support the planning, deployment and measurement of operational business functions: revenue assurance, non-technical loss, transformer monitoring and grid operations applications.

Detectent’s energy theft solutions, part of its customer intelligence platform, will be integrated with the SilverLink Sensor Network, which will enable Detectent to access real-time smart grid data streams. This, in turn, can help utilities accelerate the assessment of any action associated with irregular energy consumption and diversion within a service territory, Silver Spring explains.

Detectent also expects to leverage real-time streams via the SilverLink Sensor Network for improved grid operations, such as pinpointing overloaded transformers and topology mapping errors.
