How Do You See Private LTE Networks Shaping the Future of Utilities?
In this episode of Industry Insights, our panelists discuss how they see private LTE shaping the future of utilities. With 900 MHz spectrum for private LTE wireless broadband networks now approved for use, and the auctioning of the shared CBRS spectrum has begun, the nation’s electric utilities have an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate and advance their grid modernization and resiliency programs.
This thought-provoking virtual roundtable is hosted by Pete Tseronis (Dots and Bridges) and features a distinguished panel of industry experts and practitioners, Andy Bordine (Anterix), Ahmad Faruqui (Brattle Consulting), Rick Schmidt (Black & Veatch), and Scott Schoepel (Motorola).
Here's a preview at what our panel of experts had to say on the topic:
"You have an open protocol in LTE, where there's literally dozens of manufacturers making end devices that will be interoperable with the master system." - Rick Schmidt / Black & Veatch
"That translates into, a... reduction in outage time for customers. And, ultimately, savings for businesses that are, desperately trying to get back online, after those type of events." - Andrew Bordine / Anterix
Watch the full episode to hear these industry experts discuss how they would "visioneer" the intersection of smart communications and smart grids, as well as all the benefits that will flow from the integration of the two.
