REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- December 20, 2012

Silver Spring Networks, a leading networking platform and solutions provider
for smart energy networks, today announced it is expanding the capabilities of
its Smart Energy Platform to support commercial and industrial natural gas
users. The new Silver Spring Commercial and Industrial Gas IMU™ (Interface
Management Unit) supports a broad array of C&I natural gas endpoint devices
and is specifically designed for the needs of C&I customers. Silver Spring is
also offering a new version of its existing Residential Gas IMU solution to
support additional communications options and more cost-effective
alternatives.

“Silver Spring’s IPv6 networking platform connects more than 13 million homes
and businesses worldwide, so it’s a natural step for us to extend support to
C&I natural gas customers and to broaden the communications options for
residential gas users,” said C.J. Boguszewski, Head of AMI Solutions, Silver
Spring Networks. “We are now delivering fully encrypted two-way communications
for natural gas systems, helping utilities unlock more value from their smart
grid investments and deliver more advanced energy services to all of their
customers.”

With fully encrypted and secure two-way communications, Silver Spring’s Gas
IMU solutions enable automated real-time alerts on system status, leak
monitoring, meter tampering and other critical events, cutting utility labor
costs and ensuring system reliability. Based on open standards, the Silver
Spring Gas IMU solutions seamlessly integrate with utilities’ wider smart grid
modernization efforts.
