Silver Spring Networks says it has successfully completed Wi-SUN Alliance interoperability tests for the IEEE 802.15.4g wireless communications standard.

According to the company, IEEE 802.15.4g is a global standard harmonizing the physical layer of historically deployed wireless systems and standardizing power levels, data rates, modulations and frequency bands for smart energy networks.

Wi-SUN Alliance members conducted extensive testing demonstrating multi-vendor product interoperability in frequency bands appropriate for Japan, North America, Australia/New Zealand, Latin America and other markets worldwide, Silver Spring adds.

"Our recent interoperability testing for IEEE 802.15.4g provides confidence to our current customers that their extensive smart grid investment is protected; to our future customers that theirs will be; and to both that they can continue to tap the vast ecosystem of technologies that work reliably and securely together on our platform," says Raj Vaswani, chief technology officer at Silver Spring Networks.
