Landis+Gyr has announced successful completion of IEEE 802.15.4g interoperability tests with its Gridstream advanced metering and grid management platform during a recent IPSO Alliance event.

The IPSO-sponsored interoperability event gathered members with interest in testing diverse products that communicate via shared IPv6-based protocols. The event included a communications framework for Neighborhood Area Network (NAN) devices based on the IEEE 802.15.4g standard.

Landis+Gyr successfully completed interoperability of its platform with other participants' NAN devices using common signaling and dynamic switch modes as defined in the 802.15.4g standard. Landis+Gyr says designing the Gridstream solutions on open and interoperable standards provides utilities with deployment options and operational flexibility for smart grid applications.
