Why Patagonia

Many have thought about the name of our Smart Grid solutions, Patagonia, and wondered why the famous South American mountain range was chosen to represent our offerings.

The Patagonia mountain range, located in Chile, with its soaring mountains, azure lakes, and unique wildlife, is one the most impressive mountains in the world. However, when one closely examines the awesome range, they will see its three main peaks that stand tall, each one of them being an invaluable part of Patagonia. Our Smart Grid platform is just the same, an inspiring platform that is built on three tiers of technology, the enterprise tier, the control node tier and the grid device tier. These tiers each play an important role in bringing an industry leading Smart Grid solution to life.

We like to think of our Security Platform as the critical foundation that supports the Patagonia Mountains, because it is an integral part of our Smart Grid solution, cannot be compromised and is not optional.
