[SatNews] many Utilities need to plan how to affordably and reliably extend this communications network to the difficult to reach locations of their service territory.
The use of satellite communications continues to grow as a reliable means for connecting sites throughout a Utility network. From enabling the latest IP applications at a remote substation to improving customer knowledge through AMI collector sites, satellite brings a unique feature set to complement your overall communications infrastructure.
UTC Telecom 2014 is fast approaching and iDirect will be present to highlight the latest solutions in satellite technology at booth #314 and meet with the experts to learn how utilities are implementing our technology today.
On Wednesday, May 7, at 8 a.m., Senior Systems Engineer, Kris Jarrett will present, Satellite’s Role in the Utility Smart Grid Network in room 122A-B. He will highlight the role satellite can play in a network, the different business models for deploying a solution, and walk through customer use cases.
Energy and Utilities are making progress developing a next-generation communications network capable of running their smart grid, but many Utilities need to plan how to affordably and reliably extend this communications network to the difficult to reach locations of their service territory.
Satellite connectivity enables Utilities to bring the smart grid anywhere it is required, especially to remote substations, AMI collector sites and customer locations beyond the reach of primary networks.
Through the iDirect technology, Utilities gain a secure and reliable network solution to monitor SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) devices, with the ability to extend broadband applications such as video surveillance, VoIP and corporate data access to remote substations where other traditional communications technologies fall short.
