I had the pleasure of hearing Andres Carvallo for the first time at the Smart Grid Conference this past week in San Diego.

A dynamic and informative speaker, Andres brought the message of how Grid Net through their PolicyNet and SmartGrid software platforms combined with incorporating a 4G broadband communications for integration with Smart Grid devices provides an online, real-time view and control of the Smart Grid network.

I was particularly impressed on how Grid Net is also incorporating the ability for utilities to create, deploy, and manage enterprise policies (or business rules) centrally, thus enabling a highly distributed, intelligent control system for managing and monitoring Smart Grid devices strongly embedded with security, scalability, and most importantly, reliability.

If you have an opportunity to hear Andres speak on the SmartGrid, and his vision of what will make it work, I would highly recommend that you attend a venue of where he will be presenting.
