Today’s utilities are facing increasingly complex operational and environmental challenges: monitoring widespread and diverse areas of operation, keeping pace with energy consumption, preparing for more frequent and severe weather events, and dealing with cybersecurity threats. The solutions that address these and other challenges depend on the reliable and efficient flow of actionable information and communications across disparate systems and workgroups. Private broadband networks offer utilities the robust mission-critical data infrastructure needed for greater operational efficiency, the ongoing modernization of the electrical grid and the dependable and secure delivery of service. As intelligent devices approach the edge and are densified across the grid, utilities need an advanced wireless network that goes beyond supporting the next-generation of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) devices that traditional field area networks (FANs) support today.
