LocalGrid Technologies and RTI Partner to Deliver Secure MicroGrid Solutions Using Advanced DDS Protocol

MISSISSAUGA, ON and SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/27/14 -- LocalGrid Technologies, a leading Toronto-based developer of MicroGrid solutions and Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the real-time Internet of Things communications platform company, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver a new MicroGrid and Distributed Energy Solution. The solution combines LocalGrid's advanced micro-cell "smart grid" technology and RTI's leading implementation of the Object Management Group's (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard.

"LocalGrid, working closely with RTI, delivers a standards-based, secure, next generation MicroGrid solution," said Bob Leigh, CEO of LocalGrid. "Traditional control protocols used world-wide by power utilities are inherently vulnerable to attack when placed in a distributed deployment. Adopting RTI's DDS enables LocalGrid to deliver highly secure, highly scalable real-time solutions for power utilities."

"RTI has extensive experience with hundreds of military and civilian organizations," said Dr. Stan Schneider, CEO of RTI. "Our middleware offers standards-based communications for industrial systems with vastly better scalability, reliability, and now security. LocalGrid leverages DDS to secure all communications within their MicroGrid deployments. LocalGrid's solutions seamlessly translate all DNP3, IEC 61850 and SCADA communications into DDS for secure and reliable signaling across an increasingly distributed network topology. The same solution that controls huge multi-GW power plants is now available for distributed smart-grid applications."

LocalGrid uses DDS for transport between distributed nodes to secure and optimize utility assets that would otherwise be controlled by SCADA-based communications. The solution delivers real-time protocol hygiene and translation services to ensure that all communications between MicroGrid nodes are inherently secure and not a threat. This approach allows networks to use bandwidth more efficiently as they scale and is an important part of a service delivery fabric. LocalGrid, RTI and its partners are collaborating to deliver next-generation MicroGrid technology.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
Designing IoT applications is complex, but deploying them in a scalable fashion is even more complex. A scalable, API first IaaS cloud is a good start, but in order to understand the various components specific to deploying IoT applications, one needs to understand the architecture of these applications and figure out how to scale these components independently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nara Rajagopalan is CEO of Accelerite, will discuss the fundamental architecture of IoT applications, ...
