Where the Smart Grid and Internet meet ...

Helping find the right balance between what standards to follow and where to innovate is always a challenge. Too often, there is more organizational self-interest, theory ungrounded in operational reality, and marketing hype by the various standards bodies than usable solutions.

Over 20 years experience as an active contributor, author, working group chair, and technical advisor in many standards efforts has given perspective to the role of standards. We can help by putting perspective on past and current activities, and serving as your advocate in these bodies. We can provide guidance about which if any standards apply to your project and the amount of risk associated with them for you.

Groups/standards that we have worked with include:

  • IETF
  • NIST/SGIP
  • OSI
  • IEEE

In addition to these, we have worked with many other standards relevant to the current Smart Grid effort as well as in the Network, Application, Services and Device Management domains.
