Ho Chi Minh Power Corporation in Vietnam (EVNHCMC) and Trilliant have delivered an end-to-end RF mesh communications platform for Ho Chi Minh City.

The innovative network is showcased at Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP), the US$1.5 billion business park that is the centerpiece of Vietnam’s bid to make Ho Chi Minh City the Silicon Valley of the Pacific. Trilliant’s Smart Communications Platform provides a secure network connecting EVNHCMC’s metering infrastructure with the “who’s who” of global tech firms at SHTP.

The project was designed to demonstrate the optimal approach to smart energy communications to support energy efficiency and reliability for EVNHCMC. The utility’s Deputy General Director Tran Khiem Tuan said: “The positive results of the Saigon Hi-Tech Park project have helped us to determine new technology directions for the future.”

Trilliant’s Smart Communications Platform, the only proven, globally available RF mesh solution for AMI and distribution automation networks, extends from customer meters at Hi-Tech Park to EVNHCMC’s operations center.
