Trilliant has launched a new partner program aimed at attracting device makers to its smart grid platform technology.

The program was unveiled on the eve of a major Asian smart energy conference being hosted in Malaysia, and seems aimed primarily at drumming up interest among regional players in the Trilliant (Redwood City, CA, USA) service.

Trilliant claims that its platform has already delivered a range of smart energy benefits to utility customers worldwide and says it wants to provide device makers with a “fast and low-cost way” to adopt its technology.

The company says that benefits for device makers joining the Trilliant program will also include faster time to market, the ability to focus on core competencies and the opportunity to work with a platform that complies with internationally recognized standards.

Triliant has already revealed Singaporean smart meter maker EDMI as the inaugural member of the new program.

“Trilliant is one of the global leaders in smart grid communications and this will allow us to bring end-to-end solutions to our customers, including the leading unlicensed RF mesh solution together with our proven cellular solutions, thereby reducing the deployment risk and ensuring optimal benefits,” said Lee Kwang Mong, group managing director at EDMI.

Trilliant says it launched the partner program in response to feedback gathered from utilities globally.

“This helps fill a gap that exists in the industry today by allowing a marriage of best-of-breed end devices with communications, in a cost effective manner,” said Bryan Spear, Asia Pacific managing director at Trilliant. “This allows us to bring the industry-leading Trilliant 2.4GHz RF mesh platform together with the industry’s best end devices to our utility customers to realize the benefits of smarter grids for their operations, consumers and societies.”
