Trilliant has announced that Florida-based utility Tampa Electric Co. will deploy the company's SecureMesh wide-area network (WAN), a broadband mesh network.

Trilliant says its SecureMesh WAN is built specifically for utilities to provide the reliability, bandwidth and low latency necessary for volt/VAR control; fault detection, isolation and restoration; and other real-time distribution automation initiatives.

"This project highlights the tangible need for advanced smart grid solutions that can help customers realize the benefits of smarter energy from a variety of entry points," says Walter Lowes, Trilliant's managing director for the Americas. “While the American utility industry has been focused on smart meters recently, there are many other ways to start modernizing the grid, including starting with distribution automation first."
