Tantalus, a provider of smart grid communications, has joined Alcatel-Lucent's ng Connect program, a multi-industry ecosystem dedicated to the creation of the next- generation connected user experience.

As part of the ng Connect program, Tantalus will build on Alcatel-Lucent's fiber-to-the-home IP network to provide utilities with real-time smart grid connectivity using a fiber-enabled Tantalus Utility Network (TUNet) solution. By combining the capabilities of the two networks, Tantalus and Alcatel-Lucent will enable utilities to adopt advanced applications such as remote disconnect, load management, voltage regulation and smart thermostats.

Tantalus and Alcatel-Lucent have previously teamed up on customer deployments to provide real-time meter data that is converted simultaneously to IP for direct transmission through the optical network terminal. The data is then transmitted via MultiSpeak integration to the utility’s centralized smart grid management system for use by all other utility management applications.
