Echelon's NES software picked by Sweden's grid modernization program

Jul 03, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Echelon Corp. (NASDAQ: ELON) said that Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) will provide E.ON Elnat Sverige AB with the latest version of networked energy services (NES) software and element manager in support of Ericsson's Smart Grid as a Service.

Ericsson's service will cover the over 400,000 existing Echelon smart meters, providing new features including the ability to remotely upgrade the meters with new meter functionality and to monitor network conditions to prevent and predict outages. These network upgrades improve overall reliability and safety of the E.ON grid.

The solution is an important step towards real-time big data measurements, supplying E.ON's customers with accurate and up to date information on energy consumption. The evolution of smart grids is a priority in a number of countries, including EU and the US, and will eventually create a smart energy network that manages a huge amount of data in 24-hour intervals.

Ericsson is a world-provider of communications technology and services.

Echelon is an energy control networking company, with the world's most widely deployed proven, open standard, multi-application platform, selling complete systems and embedded sub-systems for smart grid, smart city and smart building applications.
