Smart Energy Software Frameworks

Data Concentrator Framework
Aricent and TI have co-developed a PRIME/G3 PLC-based Data Concentrator framework to help OEM vendors speed up the time to market for standards-based power-line product offerings. Our engineers are experts in WiFi mesh, cellular (EDGE, HSPA, LTE, WiMAX) and optical communication networks in smart energy engineering.


Home Energy Gateway-Demand Response (HEG-DR) Framework
Aricent and Freescale have co-created a HEG-DR framework that delivers world-class Demand Response functionality and best-in-class energy optimization. The hardware components of the solution are based on Freescale i.Mx processors running Linux and the ZigBee stack.



Ensures Standards-Based Connectivity
Our framework enables direct connectivity to in-home displays via Zigbee SEP 1.0 and home automation profile and accessibility to utilities via OpenADR 1.0.

Delivers Superior Control
By monitoring and controlling in-home displays during peak-time residential load, we’ve improved control over consumer consumption based on energy profiles.

Delivers a Smarter Network
The data collected by the home energy gateway from in-home displays gets integrated with power-quality metrics, enabling rich analytics that drive agenda to create a smarter network.

Guarantees Superior Quality
Our extensive experience in software development ensures high quality and substantially lower risks associated with deployment.
