Cisco joins Smart Grid bandwagon launches Smart Grid products

The IT networking giant Cisco has recently launched router and grid switch for the Utility companies to deploy Smart Grid networks. The Cisco Smart Grid products, Connected Grid Router (CGR 2010) and Connected Grid Switch (CGS 2520) are based on IP technology. Cisco has been building IP based products for IT since its inception and have strong expertise in this domain. Cisco has identified Smart Grid as its focus area and CEO John Chambers mentioned that Smart Grid represents bigger opportunity than Internet. It has created Smart Grid ecosystem  to develop partnership with Smart Grid stakeholders and to tap the $ 20 billion opportunity, Chambers further elaborated it has "unlimited" budget for Smart Grid .The company plans to provide products and services for substations automation, managing distributed energy resources, and home and business energy management. The networking giant already has energy metering and network management tools like EnergyWise and Network Building Mediator. It has partnered with utility companies like Duke energy and  Florida Power & Light (USA), Yellostrom (Germany), and Enmax (Canada). 

For Utilities companies, a robust partner with deep pockets and strong expertise in networking means less risk in managing advance smart energy distribution system. The new products are already being tested by  E.oN Westfalen Weser (Germany), Enel (Italy & Spain) and Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric (US). According to Cisco, These products are “ruggedized” for electric network and can withstand high and low temperature, detect network outages, and can integrate renewables.Cisco's Senior VP Laura Ipsen mentioned that Cisco is looking at the entire Smart Grid ecosystem as a potential market and emerging countries like India and China represent huge market opportunity for them. Cisco's competitor in this domain are smaller companies like SmartSynch and Silver Spring.

Firstly, let's be clear on Spring's scope. Although Spring covers a lot of ground, we have a clear vision as to what it should and shouldn't address.

Spring's main aim is to make J2EE easier to use and promote good programming practice. It does this by enabling a POJO-based programming model that is applicable in a wide range of environments.

Spring does not reinvent the wheel. Thus you'll find no logging packages in Spring, no connection pools, no distributed transaction coordinator. All these things are provided by open source projects (such as Commons Logging, which we use for all our log output, or Commons DBCP), or by your application server. For the same reason, we don't provide an O/R mapping layer. There are good solutions to this problem such as TopLink, Hibernate and JDO.

Spring does aim to make existing technologies easier to use. For example, although we are not in the business of low-level transaction coordination, we do provide an abstraction layer over JTA or any other transaction strategy.

Spring doesn't directly compete with other open source projects unless we feel we can provide something new. For example, like many developers, we have never been happy with Struts, and felt that there was room for improvement in MVC web frameworks. (With Spring MVC adoption growing rapidly, it seems that many agree with us.) In some areas, such as its lightweight IoC container and AOP framework, Spring does have direct competition, but Spring was a pioneer in those areas.
