AT&T and Digi say they are partnering to jointly offer Digi X-Grid solutions to utilities and software providers.

The Digi X-Grid suite of products and services is designed to bring connectivity to energy-oriented devices in homes and businesses. Utilities and software providers that develop products for the smart grid industry can use Digi X-Grid solutions to more effectively meet customers' energy demand, according to the companies.

Through Digi X-Grid solutions, delivered over the AT&T network, consumers and businesses can reduce power use and monthly costs with real-time monitoring of thermostats, electronics, meters and more. Currently, AT&T enables two-way communications for more than 13 million electric meters on its wireless network.
