Wi-SUN Alliance Offers Free Adopter Membership to Utilities in India

In 2015, the Wi-SUN Alliance formed a strategic relationship with the India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF), to accelerate the development of standards-based communication technologies for smart grids and smart cities in India. 

For Utility companies, the Wi-SUN Alliance provides wireless mesh solutions for Field Area Networks for applications such as Advanced Metering Infrastructure and Distribution Automation, and for Home Energy Management. Wi-SUN has been chosen by Utility companies as the Wireless solution delivering multi-vendor interoperable products from multiple vendors.

For smart cities, Wi-SUN Alliance Field Area Networks deliver multi-vendor interoperable solutions to a broad variety of applications including street lighting, parking systems and traffic management.  Municipalities can install products from different suppliers confident that they will seamlessly interoperate.
