Survalent Technology, a provider of smart grid solutions, has released a hosted supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) solution called i-Surv.

According to the company, i-Surv provides a reliable and secure alternative to a traditional dedicated SCADA system, and the solution is optimal for small to midsize utilities that do not have the technical resources to own and operate a traditional SCADA system. Outsourcing of the maintenance, operation and management of these complex systems enables utilities to reap the benefits of a world-class infrastructure with less investment and manpower, Survalent adds.

"After extensive review of the electricity market, Survalent found that smaller utilities wanted the benefits of having a SCADA system but did not have the financial resources and manpower to implement and maintain a SCADA system," says Joe DeFlippis, engineering manager for Survalent Technology. "i-Surv solved these issues by providing a hosted solution requiring less hardware and IT resources. The i-Surv system is configured to give customers 24/7 access to data via SurvCentral anywhere internet is available."
