Xcel touts customer perks as it deploys private LTE network
- Jan 13, 2021 6:36 pm GMT
Xcel Energy said it will use a new wireless telecommunications tool to help respond more quickly to local electric outages and support advanced grid smart meters that will provide more information to customers about their energy use.
The 900 MHz private wireless broadband network will be installed at two existing Xcel Energy sites in Minneapolis. The network will allow Xcel Energy to provide cyber protection to critical infrastructure and could eventually be expanded to support automated technology throughout metro and remote rural locations.
The network will be developed by Motorola Solutions using Anterix's 900 MHz spectrum.
