Cisco Connected GRID Network Management System helps utilities transform their operations (like smart metering, distribution automation, and substations) for the smart grid with unified network management. With this system, utility operations share a converged IP-based communications network, and thus manage millions of grid endpoint devices. Cisco Connected GRID Network Management System is a software platform that helps to enable a clear separation between communications network management and utility operational applications. These include Distribution Management System (DMS), Outage Management System (OMS), and Meter Data Management (MDM).
