San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco has launched the Connected Grid Cisco Developer Network (CDN), a smart-grid-focused program that will provide technology partners with access to developer tools, resources and go-to-market support.

The company says its new CDN community will enable partners to develop solutions that integrate with the Cisco GridBlocks architecture and Connected Grid solutions.

Under the CDN, Cisco certifies a product as interoperable and a partner may list the product as "Cisco Compatible." Cisco and the partner products can share data through an API, allowing solutions to be built on top of the Cisco network. In addition, Cisco licenses technology to be embedded into the partner product.

Cisco has negotiated Connected Grid CDN agreements with Alstom Grid, Alvarion, BitStew, Cooper Power Systems, DNV KEMA, Elster, InfoBlox, Itron, LogRhythm, M2M Telemetria, Meinberg, OSIsoft, Proximetry, QinetiQ, Space-Time Insight, Subnet Solutions and Symmetricom.
