ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 27 -- Itron Networked Solutions, Liberty Lake, Washington, has been assigned a patent (No. 10,598,709, initially filed March 10, 2015) developed by two co-inventors for "distributed smart grid processing." The co-inventors are Charles P. Sum, Cupertino, California, and George H. Flammer III, Cupertino, California.

The abstract states: "Nodes within a wireless mesh network are configured to monitor time series data associated with a utility network (or any other device network). One or more servers coupled to the wireless mesh network configures a data ingestion cloud to receive and process the time series data from the nodes to generate data streams. The server(s) also configure a distributed processing cloud to perform historical analysis on data streams, and a real-time processing cloud to perform real-time analysis on data streams. The distributed processing cloud and the real-time processing cloud may interoperate with one another in response to processing the data streams. Specifically, the real-time processing cloud may trigger a historical analysis on the distributed processing cloud, and the distributed processing cloud may trigger real-time processing on the real-time processing cloud. Any of the processing clouds may encompass edge nodes configured to perform real-time processing and generate data streams."
