3 Operating deployments across network tiers
Selected Deployments Largest NAN in North America today 900k+ endpoints installed 485k+ endpoints under network and communicating One of first integrated NAN / HAN projects in North America One of first NAN projects in Europe using RF mesh One of first fully functional Smart Grid networks in North America First integrated NAN / WAN multi-tier network One of first AMI projects delivering TOU billing to all customers 50k WAN units installed in 60+ countries 48k Cellular C&I meters installed across the Americas Operating deployments across network tiers

4 Regulatory Landscape in Ontario, Canada
Smart meter installations in all homes, small businesses by 2010. TOU default anticipated 2010, TOU available since 2005. PeakSaver DLC programs, CPP pilots.

9 Trilliant’s Multi-Tier Grid Network
UnityTM Head End Enterprise Software Grid Metering DSM Network Operations / Management SecureMeshTM Wide-Area Network (WAN) SecureMesh Neighborhood-Area Network (NAN) End-to-End Two-way communications from head-end to WAN to NAN to HAN Secure Open, standards-based authentication Open, standards-based encryption (IPsec, ANSI C12.22) Security partitioned by application and/or network tier Private NOT open to public devices NOT connected to the Internet Controlled and managed by the utility Resilient Self-healing mesh at all tiers (WAN, NAN, HAN) Multiple layers of built-in redundancy and fault tolerance Scalable WAN bandwidth can be allocated as needed for backhaul and Smart Grid devices NAN architecture is intrinsically scalable Cost-Effective No public carrier OpEx costs Low-cost endpoints for meters, displays, and other devices Flexible Home-by-home or territory-wide rollouts Effective in both very rural and very dense environments Optional Wi-Fi access for mobile workforce support, video surveillance, etc. Home-Area Network (HAN) A multi-tier architecture for secure private networking 9 9
