Tropos - A Smart Grid Company to Watch in 2011!

Tropos was selected as one of the top 11 smart grid companies to watch in 2011 by Smart Grid News’ annual poll. This year is off to a strong start in so many ways! In addition to this recognition, we’ve made several other significant announcements about our successes in the smart grid market.

1) Tropos was selected by more utilities for their smart grid communications in 2010 – the list includes: Avista, Burbank Water and Power, City of Duncan, Glendale Water and Power, City of Naperville (announced today ) and Silicon Valley Power (expect several more customer announcements in the next few months).

2) Tropos introduced its New Distribution Automation Mesh Router that provides economical high performance connectivity for a wide range of legacy (DNP3) and IP distribution automation devices.

3) Tropos GridCom 2.0 network architecture for the Smart Grid - a blend of high performance network technologies with unified network management that delivers the most economical and complete communications for smart grid communications. It incorporates Mesh, PTP and PTMP network technologies that can be blended together and centrally managed by Tropos Control.

Expect more exciting news from Tropos in the coming year…this is just the beginning!
