Trilliant to deploy smart grid solution for Malaysia\'s largest utility

By Greentech Lead Asia: Trilliant, a global smart
grid communications provider, has partnered with Comintel, a Systems Integrator
providing total IT and Telecommunication solutions for all type of
applications, to provide Tenaga Nasional Berhad Research (TNBR), a wholly-owned
research arm of Malaysia’s largest utility Tenaga Nasional Berhad
(TNB), with end-to-end solutions for the utility’s first integrated smart
meter and smart grid project.

The demand for energy consumption in Malaysia is
projected to increase rapidly. To meet this need, TNBR has undertaken an
ambitious smart grid demonstration project . These technologies
are expected to reduce the nation’s dependence on natural gas and coal, and
help to withdraw from national electricity subsidies in the next four years.

For this project, Trilliant will deploy its multi-tiered
RF mesh technology for both the Neighborhood Area Network and Wide Area
Network. Trilliant’s 2.4 GHz RF mesh technology will be simplifying the process
for TNB to economically roll out RF mesh without requiring complex regulatory

“We are thrilled to be working with TNBR, Uniten and
Comintel to bring the industry’s most innovative AMI and smart grid
communications solution to Malaysia. TNBR’s project is an important milestone
in the path towards smarter grids in Malaysia to support continued economic
growth,” said Bryan Spear, Trilliant’s managing director for Asia Pacific.

The project is developed by TNBR with collaboration
from Uniten (Universiti Tenaga Nasional), and is to be located at TNBR and
Uniten campuses. Comintel is responsible for the end-to-end system integration
and will manage the project.

Trilliant recently entered the Asian market with their
standards-based 2.4 GHz wireless mesh network solution for AMI and smart grid.
Trilliant’s 2.4 GHz solution operates in wireless spectrum that is available
license free around the world.
