Siemens Smart Grid says it has entered into a partnership with Proximetry, a network and device management software platform provider, to improve the management of communication devices for electric, gas and water grids for the North American market.

Through the collaboration, Siemens will deliver Proximetry's Airsync network management system (NMS) solution to utilities using its PM@Siemens delivery and integration process. This process ensures the NMS solutions are delivered on time, within budget, and configured to meet the critical demands of the utility operational environment, Siemens says. Proximetry's Airsync, a smart grid network management software platform, is designed to help utilities manage multiple networks, protocols and devices from a single control center.

"The challenge to monitor, control and manage millions of communicating grid devices from multiple vendors continues to grow dramatically as grid modernization drives usage of a few thousand devices to tens of millions," says Thierry Godart, president of Siemens Smart Grid North America. "This partnership will allow utilities to better manage this vast proliferation of information and make strides in improving grid reliability."
