Sentec joins PRIME Alliance
Mark England, Sentec’s CEO, said: “Sentec has joined the PRIME Alliance to promote the use of a standardised narrowband powerline carrier solution. We look forward to participating in the development of the standard and the many exciting products that a global powerline market can enable.”
The PRIME Alliance is focused on the development of a new open, public and non-proprietary telecom solution for smart meters and the smart grid. The alliance was founded in 2009 by eight members and today includes utilities like EDF and Iberdrola, meter manufacturers, communications and AMI solutions vendors. The alliance provides a forum for the creation of open and standardised SmartGrid products and services to increase demand on a worldwide basis.

We are seeing considerable up-scaling in the demand for smart grid deployments and expect this trend to continue as enterprises look for bespoke metering solutions.”
