The Silver Spring® Critical Infrastructure Networking Platform

Silver Spring Networks delivers a powerful and comprehensive suite of critical infrastructure networking solutions. Leading utilities and cities in the U.S. and worldwide have chosen the Silver Spring® Critical Infrastructure Networking Platform as the foundation for their smart grid and smart city networks, enabling them to give their customers the most advanced and planet-friendly smart electricity, gas and water programs, services and products available today.

Smart Grid Platform Standards-Based IPv6 Network

Silver Spring achieves this through an open, standards-based IPv6 network that integrates and connects all of a utility’s or city’s infrastructure, software and services. This open approach guarantees support for multiple, diverse products and ensures seamless interoperability within any environment. Utilities can easily tailor and scale smart electricity, gas and water solutions to meet their project goals, as well as unique service territory and terrain requirements; regulatory models; and operational structures.

Above all, Silver Spring’s solution suite is designed to help utilities improve operational efficiencies and provide a superior customer experience. With this unwavering focus, we build and deliver the key technologies that are needed to modernize and connect tomorrow’s critical infrastructure networks, including:
