Smart grid communications firm Trilliant and General Electric (GE) will provide a smart grid communications platform to the city of Holly Springs, Mississippi.

For more information and to learn more, please visit Trilliant's booth #1425 at the 2014 DistribuTECH, North America's largest smart-grid annual gathering.

The project, which uses Trilliant's SecureMesh Communication Technology and services, was announced just before the start of DistribuTECH, North America's largest annual smart grid conference.

The city of Holly Springs wanted to make smart grid investments to enhance its operational efficiency, improve reliability and increase customer engagement. In looking at various alternatives, Holly Springs chose GE's Grid IQ SaaS as the most reliable and cost-effective way to deploy the advanced smart grid solutions needed to meet current and future needs.

With GE's Grid IQ SaaS and Trilliant's communication technology, Holly Springs will receive the benefits of advanced smart grid deployments without the high costs associated with owning the smart grid assets and managing the deployments themselves. GE chose Trilliant for Holly Springs due to Trilliant's capabilities in delivering utilities with reliability, speed and bandwidth built into Trilliant's SecureMesh Communication Platform.
