    greentech media:Verizon moves service the grid within its own cloud.

    Telco Verizon’s Plan for an End-to-End, Cloud-Based Smart Grid

    Pilot project linking meters, MDM and cloud services soon to be announced

    For years, Verizon has been working on expanding from its traditional role as utility industry telecommunications provider to enabling a broader, deeper set of smart grid services. That work ranges from its 2011 partnership with eMeter, now part of Siemens, to host its meter data management (MDM) and analytics on Verizon’s cloud computing platform, to using the same IT expertise for building energy management and utility customer engagement.

    Now, Verizon is plotting a new step on that path -- becoming an end-to-end smart grid solutions provider. The telco giant is now central manager of a utility-scale smart meter and MDM deployment, Ernie Lewis, industry partner with Verizon's global energy and utility practice, told me in an interview earlier this month.
