"A smart infrastructure environment is the new 'gold standard' for utilities, and Aclara is committed to be the global leader in this space," said Allan Connolly, CEO at Aclara. "The introduction of the iiDEAS platform represents the first of many technology developments from Aclara that will transform SIS from concept to reality. The new iiDEAS platform also strengthens our relationship with our customers and the value of our technology in the marketplace today and in the future."

SIS elevates the use of technology in distribution networks from automated metering infrastructure (AMI), which is the current state of the industry, to a far more advanced and holistic approach. SIS incorporates a range of technologies that enable utilities to monitor the state of their distribution network, analyze the data, and communicate to the utility so that measures can be taken to optimize operations, preempt problems, or respond to issues quickly and efficiently.

The open iiDEAS platform provides a centralized repository to aggregate data collected from multiple sources such as meter-reading networks, sensors, back-office systems, geospatial information systems (GIS), and weather feeds. Single service as well as combination utilities can access data from multiple utility-specific systems through iiDEAS' comprehensive user interface to optimize their distribution networks, lower operating costs, and increase service reliability. By offering a single collection and distribution point for information, iiDEAS facilitates utility solutions such as loss analysis, voltage analysis, power billing, demand management, meter exchange, transformer load analysis, and customer presentment.
