    Cisco, working closely with Duke Energy, will develop a highly refined, end-to-end, smart grid communications architecture – one that both companies believe will be among the most comprehensive and interoperable in the electric utility industry.

    The newly created architecture will be based on what the industry calls “internet protocol-based open standards” – an approach that permits easy accommodation of new and emerging communications technology as it becomes available in future years.

    “Internet protocol-based open standards are key to creating a smart, highly-secure backbone for the nation’s modern electrical grid,” said Marthin De Beer, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco’s Emerging Technologies Group.

    The two companies will jointly evaluate a variety of smart grid communications hardware and software, and oversee installation and testing of selected equipment and software throughout Duke Energy’s electric grid.
