The Challenge of Becoming a Smart Utility

The imminent modernization of the utility grid represents a great opportunity for advancement and change. The telecom network underpins the promise of a Smart Grid to ultimately change the way energy is consumed and delivered including initiatives such as smart meters, substation automation and distribution automation.

The migration to Smart Grid will drive a vast growth in the numbers and types of connected devices. In addition to delivering mission-critical data and voice, utilities must have a telecom infrastructure that overcomes all the challenges these new connected devices represent including requirements for increased network bandwidth, greater coverage, enhanced mobility, strong security and mission-critical network reliability.
