Network Solutions For IoT Sensors

Connecting critical infrastructure through
our suite of intelligent devices

Providing reliable, cost effective connectivity to power
a vast ecosystem of distributed computing sensors

A strong foundation builds a strong future. Our multi-application network platform lays the foundation for a brilliant and interconnected smart grid and smart city through proven, standards-based solutions that are secure, flexible and reliable. Silver Spring’s mesh network technology gives utilities and cities more choices, while ensuring the most efficient and scalable deployment path possible.

The Silver Spring Network Platform is a suite of intelligent devices to connect critical infrastructure. With capabilities demonstrated for over a decade, utilities and cities worldwide trust the Network Platform to enable their most critical applications. This family of networking products includes endpoint devices such as Network Interface Cards (NICs), Interpreters, and Interface Management Units, as well as network equipment such as Edge Routers, Bridges, Access Points (APs) and Relays.

Silver Spring’s Gen5 network technology connects applications and devices to enable you to unlock value and accelerate your critical infrastructure initiatives. Our Gen5 technology breakthroughs include new applications enabled by distributed intelligence that harness the compute/storage capabilities within millions of NICs across the network. With industry leading performance and capacity, supporting bandwidth as high as 2.4 Mbps and latency as low as 10 ms, a Gen5 network powers your most demanding use cases. Gen5 devices also enhance the reliability of the network with dual-band mesh capabilities, including the 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz bands, and by dynamically optimizing data throughput to maximize network range and battery life. This can all be achieved with seamless connection to low power devices with battery life of up to 20 years.

Key benefits include:

  • Industry leading speed and capacity enhances opportunity for performance intensive multi-application services
  • Comprehensive and cost-effective coverage of diverse territory
  • Rapid time-to-value with flexible integration options
  • Power-optimized design provides up to 20-years of operational life for battery-backed devices
  • Backwards compatibility ensures seamless interoperability with past and future generations of Silver Spring network devices
  • Improved operating efficiency through service automation across battery-powered devices
  • Cost-effective power/performance through flexible, standards-based solution architecture
  • Risk mitigation through proven multi-layer security

Understanding that different parts of the world have different regulatory and communications technology requirements, we also offer a broad range of standard transport and spectrum allocation options, including dual-band mesh capabilities supporting both 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz RF mesh, as well as cellular, and Ethernet.

Customers turn to us for these choices, as well as the proven record of our critical infrastructure network. With support for multiple communications options, the Network Platform delivers complete and cost-effective coverage across diverse operating environments and enables deployment of up to 50,000 devices a week through its self-configuring system. Additionally, our multi-application mesh network technology supports latency as low as 10 ms, in mixed AMI and DA environments, for unrivaled performance.
