MUMBAI, INDIA: In a latest update, Connode is working with Reliance Energy in Mumbai as the strategic partner for communication solutions and applications using Intel IOT Gateways for building a Smart Sustainable City Network in Mumbai.

In the first phase, Reliance will connect the smart meters, streetlights and distribution automation equipment in Mumbai, using Intel IOT Gateways and Connode’s IPv6 based wireless mesh solution, Connode 4. This is said to be the first roll-out in India of smart meters fully compliant to the communication standards recently adopted in the machine-to-machine (M2M) roadmap by the government of India.

The solution features Intel technology for high-performance IoT Smart City Gateways, capable of supporting distributed intelligence and with the ability to handle a large number of connected nodes, both IPv6 mesh and other IoT protocols, says a press update.

“By pioneering implementation of Smart Grid in Mumbai, we will be able to provide unparalleled services to our esteemed customers and build competencies to participate in the opportunity to build Smart Cities,” adds RR Mehta, CEO of Reliance Energy.

“Our ambition is to be a key player in the transformation of India’s infrastructure for energy and Smart City services. Connode’s IPv6 mesh technology together with Intel IOT Gateways and embedded security solutions will provide a highly flexible and cost-effective total communications solution that is easy to deploy and efficient to operate,” said Bjorn Lindblom, CEO of Connode.

“Smart Sustainable City solutions is one of the focus areas for Intel as part of the larger Internet of Things space. We are excited to work with Reliance and Connode to provide Intel IOT Gateways for one of the most interesting and growing Smart City markets in the world,” stated Jonathan Ballon, vice president of IoT Market Acceleration at Intel.
