Utilities now have the opportunity and spectrum options to build a P-LTE network that bests suits their connectivity needs.
Private wireless broadband has been a critical unmet need for electric utilities in the last decade. With the upcoming CBRS auction and the FCC Ruling on 900 MHz in May, spectrum is now available for utilities to build their private LTE networks and expand their broadband to the edge of the grid in support of utility modernization efforts.
This thought-provoking virtual roundtable is hosted by Pete Tseronis of Dots & Bridges and features special guests Richelle Elberg (Guidehouse), Mauricio Subieta (Nokia), and Michael Aarons (Federated Wireless).
Here's a look at what our panel of industry experts and practitioners had to say on the topic:
" The utility’s paradigm [is] completely changing from being the sole provider of a service or product to being a broker. And you cannot be a broker if you do not to have data. Right now, the data is the actual most important asset in the utilities’ hands." -- Mauricio Subieta / Nokia
" If you're a utility, it's not only about new value creation, it’s about value preservation in a more competitive environment." -- Richelle Elberg / Guidehouse
