Tantalus develops, manufactures and markets two-way data communications networks for electric, water and gas utilities.

The Tantalus Utility Network – TUNet® – is Smart Grid technology that enables a utility to monitor, control and respond to events anywhere and at any time across its distribution network. It serves as the communications backbone that makes Smart Metering, Power Quality Monitoring, Outage Reporting, Load Control, and Distribution Automation practical and cost effective. The result is more efficient operations, more accurate billing, and the ability for a utility to deliver a high level of customer service.

Tantalus is a private company founded in 1989. TUNet was launched in 2004. The production version represents over 250 staff years of development and earned several high-profile business & technology awards. TUNet systems are deployed throughout North America at utilities determined to gain more value from their network, manage energy resources wisely, and provide customers with a high level of service.
