Critical infrastructure solutions specialist, Itron, is launching an online marketplace that enables cities to explore third-party smart city solutions.
The company aims to help cities and utilities continue to digitally transform and better serve their citizens and customers.
The Itron Partner Solution Marketplace augments the solutions found in Itron’s product catalogue, allowing cities access to a range of products and search by solution type, industry, supported connectivity models and regional availability.
According to Itron, the partner ecosystem enhances and extends its solution portfolio and enables a diverse set of use cases. This includes: demand response; distribution automation; distributed energy management; distributed intelligence (DI); gas; water; smart cities; and smart lighting.
Itron said such technologies can increase consumer energy awareness and enable more resourceful management of appliances, solar generation, and electric vehicle charging.
John Marcolini, senior vice president of networked solutions at Itron, said: “We are excited to showcase field-ready solutions with the launch of Itron’s Partner Solution Marketplace.
“The marketplace will continue to grow as we add tested solutions and new partners, allowing Itron customers to easily extend the value of their Itron multi-purpose industrial internet of things (IIoT) network by expanding new use-cases with innovative solutions from a robust, diverse and mature partner ecosystem.”
