Based on its recent analysis of the global advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Landis+Gyr with the 2019 Global Company of the Year Award for addressing customers’ current and evolving needs with its cutting-edge AMI solutions. Gridstream® Connect, Landis+Gyr’s next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) platform, is rapidly proving capable of transforming utility operations. It is designed to drive intelligence to the grid edge, at the community level, and across the distribution system to enable a highly robust approach to layered intelligence and machine decision-making. Gridstream Connect is the only utility IoT networking solution that is integrable with both current and future communications technologies.
“At the core of Gridstream Connect is Landis+Gyr’s highly innovative IPv6 multi-technology network architecture that supports communication technologies such as RF Mesh, LoRa, and cellular, all on a single network manager,” said Gautham Gnanajothi, global research director. “With a diverse sensor environment, flexible communications capability, and dedicated application enablement, Gridstream Connect is set to propel utilities beyond traditional applications and use cases. On the strength of its comprehensive product portfolio and forward-looking strategies, the company holds the leading shares in the global markets.”
In addition to building a strong portfolio, Landis+Gyr has invested in and partnered with emerging technologies focused on expanding grid intelligence. One example is Sense, a technology company that specializes in monitoring and measuring the energy consumed by electrical devices. By leveraging Sense’s technology and tying it to the Gridstream Connect IoT platform, Landis+Gyr enhances the value provided to utilities and consumers in terms of improved efficiency, enhanced reliability and security, and thorough demand response.
Landis+Gyr’s multi-dimensional approach to implementing best practices will further entrench it in the market. One of the company’s key focus areas is implementing best practices for operational efficiency. To address the market’s ongoing structural changes and increased competition, Landis+Gyr launched a global initiative to improve its organizational structure and lower production costs. Its sharp focus on all aspects of manufacturing, including supply chain, procurement, production cost, and quality, plays a crucial role in its outstanding operational efficiency.
“While technology and innovation form the core of Landis+Gyr’s DNA, the company also prioritizes service. It has strategically repositioned its service business in APAC, specifically partnering in Australia, to offer asset financing,” noted Gautham. “Overall, its commitment to preparing utilities for the future and adopting industry best practices have positioned it for continued growth and success.”
