In 2011, a group of visionary leaders came together to form a global organization that could drive the adoption of Interoperable Smart Utility Networks, as described by IEEE 802.15.4g. Wi-SUN Alliance TM is that organization.
Today, energy conservation, automated metering controls, and monitoring requirements are top priorities for progressive cities and communities around the world, and internet-based controls and monitoring strategies are gaining momentum. But much more work remains to be done to identify and articulate the common goals that will help Utility companies and Municipalities to optimize sophisticated and cost-saving energy controls.
Wi-SUN Alliance members are leading this challenge by driving new Smart Ubiquitous IoT Network applications, such as Smart Cities and Smart Utilities, and products through a shared perspective on interoperability that is so crucial to advancing "seamless connectivity."
