Trilliant Named to 2016 Global Smart Energy Elites for Pioneering Vietnam’s First Smart City Communications Platform
Ho Chi Minh Power Corporation, Trilliant honored by global smart meter industry
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – (November 17, 2016) – Metering & Smart Energy International has named Trilliant’s project for Ho Chi Minh Power Corporation (EVNHCMC) to their 2016 Global Smart Energy Elites for creating Vietnam’s first smart city communications platform. This year’s list includes 24 industry projects, nine of which also include team profiles. EVNHCMC was included in both sections, highlighting their RF Mesh AMI Solution as well as the AMI Network at Saigon Hi-Tech Park.
EVNHCMC deployed Trilliant’s Smart Communications Platform to demonstrate the optimal approach to smart energy communications to support energy efficiency and reliability for EVNHCMC.
The end-to-end RF Mesh solution for AMI and distribution automation networks uses a combination of interoperable wireless spectrum technologies and has established a virtual private network across the entire enterprise. The project debuted at Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP), the centerpiece of Vietnam’s bid to make Ho Chi Minh City the ‘Silicon Valley of the Pacific.’ The platform extends from customer meters at Hi-Tech Park to EVNHCMC’s operations center.
The approach provided EVNHCMC a single platform capable of supporting multiple high-value applications and prevented costly integration of multiple vendors’ solutions. The communications network incorporates a variety of technologies that are suited to the needs of the varied terrain, customers, and system characteristics across the utility’s distribution network.
“The successful deployment of the AMI network has demonstrated a communications solution that can be scaled to support our broader smart grid strategy,” said Tran Khiem Tuan, deputy general director at EVNHCMC, in the magazine article. “It is a foundational step in EVN’s commitment to advancing the efficiency, reliability and affordability of energy for our customers.”
According to the article, EVNHCMC plans to continue to build infrastructure and intelligence to meet the tremendous energy demand of the region’s growing economy with smarter, clean, reliable, and affordable power.
