The analysts forecast the Global Smart Grid Technology market to grow at a CAGR of 29.47 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the aging power grid infrastructure. The Global Smart Grid Technology market has also been witnessing the increasing integration of various technologies into the power grid. However, the high implementation cost could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the Global Smart Grid Technology Market Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and the APAC regions; it also covers the Global Smart Grid Technology market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The advancement of technology in various sectors is one of the major positive trends observed in the Global Smart Grid Technology market. For instance, the advancement of technologies in the Telecom, IT, and Energy industries has enabled the integration of all these sectors into the power grid with the help of smart grid technologies. 

The advancement of smart grid technologies has taken place in almost all the stages of power infrastructure such as energy generation, energy storage, power distribution, and power consumption. Smart grid technology also includes the integration of advanced technologies such as the internet, computers, and wireless networking into the power grid. 

This integration of various technologies into the power grid is expected to have a positive effect on the Global Smart Grid Technology market during the forecast period.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the aging power grid infrastructure. As various power grids across the world were built many years ago, the reliability of such grids during power blackouts and environmental changes is declining. This increases the need for upgrading the power grids, which is facilitated by the integration of various smart grid technologies into them; this will in turn increase their reliability.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...
