Silver Spring Networks: IoT Networking Solutions for Critical infrastructure
For more than a decade, Silver Spring has delivered SilverLink for the most rigorous customers and applications in the world. Our proven networks securely connect more than 25 million critical infrastructure devices at 99.9% reliability, across hundreds of thousands of square miles of dramatically varied dense urban and remote rural topographies, in harsh outdoor environments with field lifespans of a dozen years or more. SilverLink is a leading critical infrastructure solution that provides a flexible foundation with future-proof capability to support the evolving needs of a smart city or smart utility.
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. With SilverLink as the foundation, cities and utilities can easily tailor and scale smart city, electricity, gas, water and lighting solutions to meet their project goals with flexible solutions tailored to your unique service territory, terrain requirements, regulatory model and operational structure.
Above all, the SilverLink solution suite is designed to help cities and utilities improve operational efficiencies while providing superior and reliable services. With this unwavering focus, we build and deliver the key technologies that are needed to modernize and connect tomorrow’s critical infrastructure networks.
