Itron (ITRI) & Digi International (DGII) to Develop Smart Grid Apps

Earlier today, Itron (ITRI) announced a partnership with Tendril in an attempt to rule the smart grid world.  Now the company is announcing a collaboration with Digi International (DGII) to enable utilities to remotely monitor and control automation devices utilizing Itron’s OpenWay advanced metering infrastructure network in conjunction with Digi’s ConnectPort gateway. 

“Digi complements OpenWay by bridging common technology standards toward the advancement of Smart Grid adoption,” said Russ Vanos, Itron vice president of marketing. “We’re thrilled to expand Itron’s growing portfolio of Smart Grid solutions with Digi’s industry-leading expertise in device networking.”
