14 © 2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Confidential T-Systems International Smart Grid 14 Strategic and architectural challenges: Will Utility/SP infrastructures converge? Market Expectation  Utilities rolling-out Smart Metering  Strong regulatory and public pressue to deliver energy efficiency solutions  SP / Challenger under pressure to enable mass market broadband connectivity Competition Smart Grid as a hosted service  Utility and SP under pressure by declining retail margins  Renaissance of home automation services fueled by energy efficiency solutions (and renewable integration)  Utility and SP independently fighting for retail customer ownership How to develop a communication infrastructure meeting the requirements of an integrated though unbundled utility value chain? Could convergence of utility and SP networks enhance a joint value proposition? What are the regulatory and legal implications?
