Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Smart Grid Wide Area Network (WAN) Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Smart Grid Wide Area Network (WAN) Market: ABB, Cisco Systems, Fujitsu, GE Energy and Huawei Technologies

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Trilliant, Silver Springs Network and Elster

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Power utilities worldwide have been working to change the way data is transmitted to and collected from consumers through various communication networks. AMI-enabled meters are being deployed to facilitate two-way communications between utilities and consumers. Thus, with the increase in deployment of smart energy meters, the need for data maintenance at the grid level has grown. As one of the integral parts of smart grid communications, smart energy metering solutions support the overall objective of managing the electricity grid. Thus, in order to manage the volumes of data being generated, smart metering has driven the growth of the market for WANs in smart grids.”

According to the report, global annual investment in smart grids increased from 2012 to 2014. There have been several large-scale projects for smart grid development undertaken by global companies such as ABB and GE. The emergence of these grids is facilitating the growth of several communication technologies.Further, the report states that weak regulatory standards and operators’ lack of experience in tackling such threats is impacting market growth.
