A smart meter has a wireless networking interface and mesh networking software.
There’s $2 billion in stimulus money available for projects that seek to make components of the Smart Grid interoperable and vendor neutral.
The Federal Communications Commission released its National Broadband Plan on March 17. Among the larger issues addressed in the Plan is the use of wireless broadband to facilitate Smart Grid development.
Smart grid is a generic label for the application of computer intelligence and networking abilities to a dumb electricity distribution system. Smart grid initiatives seek to improve operations, maintenance and planning by making sure that all components of the electric grid can seamlessly exchange data. Smart Grid vocabulary is about electricity and power management, but it's also about networking, data management, data analytics, storage, security, customer communication and privacy. Continue...
OVERHEARD TALKING ABOUT SMART GRID TECH
"The overriding goal of Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards is to ensure the bulk electric system is protected from cyberattacks." -- Ernie Hayden
Energy IT sees smart-grid boon for data storage The economic stimulus package set aside billions of dollars for smart grids and smart meters, and storage admins at early-adopter energy companies are already managing hundreds of terabytes and even petabytes of data. (SearchStorageChannel.com)
Networking VARs could grab smart grid stimulus bill funding Given that the stimulus bill includes $54 billion for modernizing the nation's energy grid, VARs will have to take a second look at these opportunities, especially since these projects will depend on integrators for networking, storage and systems.

A local area network (LAN) consists of computers and peripherals that share a common communications line or wireless link to a server. LANs are typically located within a distinct geographic area in an office or other facility.
Dependency injection (DI) is an object-oriented programming (OOP) software design structure in which service references, also called dependencies, are delivered to clients from the outside as required.
Traceability, in supply chain management, is the ability to identify, track and trace elements of a product or substance as it moves along the supply chain from raw goods to finished products. The concept applies to both the discrete manufacturing industry, which produces products such as automobiles, and to the process manufacturing industry, which includes products such as chemicals.
PTC ThingWorx is a model-based rapid application development (RAD) platform for the Internet of Things. The platform provides design, networking, data management and analytics tools for building business software that integrates with and manages IoT devices.
A digital twin is a virtual representation of a product that can be used in product design, simulation, monitoring, optimization and servicing. It requires three elements: the physical product in real space, its digital twin in virtual space and the information that links the two.
The Business Continuity Institute, which was started in 1994 and is headquartered out of the United Kingdom, is an international organization that offers accreditation and certification, networking, published resources, training and guidance for business continuity professionals.
ORTC (object real-time communications) is an open source component of WebRTC that enables mobile endpoints to talk to servers and Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. ORTC is under development by a W3C community group that is supported by vendors including Hookflash, Google and Microsoft.
Logistic regression is a statistical method for creating predictive models that classify data into different outcome categories based on historical observations of outcomes involving the same data variables. In particular, it is an important element of machine learning applications.
Deep learning automates predictive analytics by stacking algorithms in a hierarchy of increasing complexity and abstraction. Each algorithm in the hierarchy applies a non-linear transformation on its input and uses what it learns to create a statistical model as output.
