The ESB is the industry standard interoperable bus architecture which supports the interchange of messages between both operational real-time and enterprise class applications.
For most, the objective for a complex Smart Grid core infrastructure is that it will comprise an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and a common network model, both for interoperable communication, data definition and access.
The Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) nature of the ESB provides utilities with an interoperable framework for intra-Enterprise communications between the core real-time utility operational applications (such as DMS, OMS, SCADA) and near real-time Enterprise applications (such as MDM, AMI, and mobile terminals).
Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) is handles the dynamic routing of service requests and replies between consumers, producers and intermediaries.
