Discover the Power of Trilliant M2M Smart Metering

The Trilliant M2M Smart Metering System provides Machine-to-Machine (M2M) smart metering communication capabilities using cellular/mobile networks. It is designed to bridge the gap between utilities and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) by creating a M2M smart metering service that encompasses both the advanced smart energy function of the Trilliant Platform and the flexibility of a cellular/mobile smart meter rollout.  Purpose-built for Smart Meter deployments, the Smart Metering M2M system is secure, scalable and flexible.

M2M Smart Meter deployments are increasingly being viewed as a flexible, low-risk and low-cost way of rolling out smart meters to a range of properties, as well as offering a future upgrade path to higher bandwidth services into the home.  With M2M networks proven and trusted the world over, they are a natural place to find connectivity for Smart Metering and Smart Grid projects.

Trilliant has extensive experience of deploying M2M smart metering systems, in the US, the UK and elsewhere around the world.  The Trilliant’s CellReader and Communications Hub solutions, which are part of the Trilliant Platform, are just two examples of Trilliant’s robust M2M solutions that have been extensively deployed on leading MNO networks globally. The M2M Smart Metering System further extends this proven Trilliant Platform, combining a global 2.4 GHz RF mesh, M2M cellular, broadband mesh and other standards-based technologies to give utilities the flexibility to choose the right technology for the territory, regulatory environment, and rollout strategy, all while meeting cost and performance targets.   The Trilliant platform is used today by utilities serving more than 70 million customers around the globe.
