Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team
said: ''One of the major trends is the increasing communication network
services leasing. Several power utilities have entered into contracts
for leasing the smart grid communications network services to various
telecom companies, or to other service providers. This trend strongly
prevails in the US, with approximately 20 percent of the power utilities
leasing smart grid communications networks to third parties.''
According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the
increasing construction of large smart grids. The major difference
between smart grids and traditional power grids is the ability of the
smart grid to facilitate two-way communications, which are performed
through the smart grid communication networks.
