Aug 27, 2009 - Clean Edge News

Trilliant Incorporated, a developer of smart grid solutions that enhance energy efficiency, utility operations, and renewable resource integration, recently announced it is integrating its technology with IBM WebSphere and Tivoli products to help utility companies more easily and securely expand their Smart Grid initiatives.

Under a new agreement, Trilliant will incorporate IBM's WebSphere and Tivoli products into Trilliant's UnitySuite. Trilliant and IBM will also reportedly pursue joint solution architecture development and integrated solution offerings to the global utility market, as well as cooperate on industry standards development.

Trilliant says it will incorporate IBM's WebSphere application server capabilities to enhance the scalability, security, fault tolerance, and performance of Trilliant's core Smart Grid management software. According to the company, using WebSphere Enterprise Services Bus capabilities both simplifies and enhances the integration of Smart Grid network capabilities into utility enterprise grid networks.

This partnership comes a few months after Trilliant announced its acquisition of broadband wireless provider SkyPilot Networks.
