SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/10 -- Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced that EnergyAustralia, the largest energy network in Australia with 3 million customers, has selected Cisco® Connected Grid solutions as the infrastructure platform for the delivery of a range of business-critical services in its major substations across its electricity network.

Cisco introduced the first offerings in its Connected Grid portfolio of smart grid communications solutions in May 2010. These solutions -- purpose-built, ruggedized routers and switches -- form a resilient, manageable and highly secure network solution for the utility substation to integrate Internet Protocol (IP)-based communications with the power grid for intelligent grid monitoring and control. EnergyAustralia selected Cisco's Connected Grid solution to build the core of its smart grid infrastructure with greater security, reliability, and operational efficiency, while complying with regulatory mandates and industry standards such as IEC 61850 and supporting new energy supply sources.

Together, the Cisco Connected Grid routers and switches will help EnergyAustralia improve the reliability of the power supply by detecting and analyzing faults quicker as well as decreasing response times. This Cisco Connected Grid solution provides a highly secure, scalable communications network to help utilities identify, isolate, diagnose and repair faults more quickly and efficiently. The solution will also help EnergyAustralia plan and develop energy management solutions and better integrate renewable energy into the grid.

Les Williamson, Vice President of Cisco Australia and New Zealand, said: "With 25 years of building intelligent networking technology infrastructures, Cisco has the deep expertise to help utilities realise the digital transformation of the grid while maintaining their investment in existing systems. With our Connected Grid solution at the core of its substations, we look forward to helping EnergyAustralia achieve its business and operational goals to build a smarter and more reliable electricity grid."

  • NKorea warns region is on brink of war Nov 26, 2021 04:50 AM

    • YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea - North Korea warned Friday that U.S.-South Korean plans for military maneuvers put the peninsula on the brink of war, and appeared to launch its own artillery drills within sight of an island it showered with a deadly barrage this week.
    • The fresh artillery blasts were especially defiant because they came as the U.S. commander in South Korea, Gen. Walter Sharp, toured the South Korean island to survey damage from Tuesday's hail of North Korean artillery fire that killed four people.
    • None of the latest rounds hit the South's territory, and U.S. military officials said Sharp did not even hear the concussions, though residents on other parts of the island panicked and ran back to the air raid shelters where they huddled earlier in the week as white smoke rose from North Korean territory.

            • EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Even missing a shoe, Brad Smith didn't miss a step.
            • The Jets' Mr. Everything sparked New York to its second-best start after scoring on an 89-yard kickoff return - during which a cleat slipped off - and also had a 53-yard touchdown run in a 26-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.

              • Iraq Kurdish leader: A uniter in a divided nation Nov 26, 2021 03:46 AM

                • In his five years as Iraq's president, Jalal Talabani has shown a remarkable ability to rise above the ethnic and religious divisions defining the country's political scene - sometimes at the expense of his own Kurdish identity.
                • But in rejecting the death sentence against Aziz - a Christian who was Saddam's longtime foreign minister - Talabani offered Iraq's small Christian minority a significant goodwill gesture at a time of deep uncertainty over its future in the wake of deadly attacks since 2003.
                • In polarized Iraq, most politicians press an unflinching sectarian or ethnic line - whether Sunni, Shiite or Kurdish - in a zero-sum game where another sect's win is often seen as your sect's loss.

                    • WASHINGTON - Environmental groups are criticizing the Obama administration for what they say is a continuing backlog of plants and animals in need of protection under the Endangered Species Act.
                    • The Fish and Wildlife Service says 251 species are candidates for endangered species protection, four more than a similar review last year found.
                    • Environmental groups say that shows the Obama administration has done little to improve on what they consider a dismal record on endangered species under President George W. Bush.
