Need a reliable & secure energy supply? Follow Singapore’s lead to interoperability.
By Wi-SUN Alliance™
Government agencies worldwide are mandating improved efficiency for energy production and delivery. Today, many forward-thinking users are moving away from closed, proprietary protocols to embrace open international standards. Wi-SUN®, the most widely deployed large scale IoT technology in the world, has developed a robust protocol based on open global standards that can deliver high performing, large scale, outdoor, urban networks suitable for a range of demanding applications including electric, water and gas metering. Wi-SUN-based networks are operating successfully on five continents.
For example, the Singapore Energy Market Authority (SEMA) selected an IoT networking solution based on the Wi-SUN Field Area Networking (FAN) profile for the expansion of its Smart Meter Program. Interoperability with the existing Singapore Power meter deployment and the Wi-SUN FAN profile were required components for SEMA, a statutory board under Singapore’s Ministry of Trade and Industry. According to SEMA, adhering to the Wi-SUN FAN profile based on open standards will help ensure interoperability not only today, but years from now.
The Wi-SUN FAN profile offers interoperable, multi-vendor networks to enterprise, service providers and municipalities needing a superior, open standards-based, secure networking solution for applications ranging from advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and distribution automation, to infrastructure management, intelligent transportation systems and smart street lighting.
