Grid Net will work together with Oracle to deliver advanced distribution management systems and meter data management technology to support utilities' smart grid deployments aimed to improve grid reliability and enable smarter energy choices.

Today's emerging smart grid deployments will generate a vast amount of energy usage data and require near real-time, reliable, and secure communications for utilities to efficiently distribute energy and interact with a rapidly growing number of distributed devices. As a Gold level member of the Oracle Partner Network, Grid Net will work closely with Oracle to help deliver complete, open, and integrated Smart Grid solutions to the utilities industry.

Grid Net’s software platforms, PolicyNet SmartGrid Network Management System and Smart Network Operating System (NOS), provide a complement to Oracle Utilities' mission-critical software applications, including Oracle Utilities Network Management System, Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management, Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management, and Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management. Together, these solutions can help utilities efficiently, securely distribute power, improve network reliability and reduce outage durations. The combined solution will operate on a common data model and integrate easily with Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management and Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing providing utilities with a wealth of information that will help them improve network performance and customer satisfaction.
