IBM announced that it will help utilities modernize the underlying communications networks that enable them to deliver energy resources. By providing complete consulting, design and implementation services with network technology from industry partners, IBM states that it will deliver the first-ever comprehensive communications services offering of its kind. This new offering will allow utilities to transform their networks and make the transition from traditional to "smart" grids.

With secure and scalable communications infrastructure integrated from the data center all the way to the sensor or smart meter, utilities can maximize service levels, better consolidate and manage security, execute network monitoring and management functions, manage assets, meet regulatory requirements and further accelerate the deployment of smarter grids – all while meeting cost objectives.
