This item is part of the Utility Guide to Private LTE - OCTOBER 2022 SPECIAL ISSUE, click here for more

Now more than ever, utilities are being asked to deliver greater resiliency, intelligence, and security to support grid modernization, while transforming to withstand extreme weather conditions, the adoption of DERs, and more.  Private LTE is already being implemented by some of America’s leading utilities to help in solving for these challenges.

In the past, utilities treated communications networks as a necessary cost of doing business. Those days are gone. The inexorable march of utility modernization necessitates a communications network that is a foundational element in providing safe and reliable service to customers, today and in the future. As an increasingly complex grid relies ever more upon data, the communications network becomes one of the utility’s primary strategic assets.

Our Utility Guide to Private LTE Special Issue presents a unique opportunity for you to share your experiences with peers in the industry and perhaps even help kickstart conversations that help you and others uncover new potential solutions and opportunities.

For this issue, we want to hear from you! We are seeking white papers, and case studies from our community for this Special Issue Edition.

Some topic ideas include:

  • How do Private LTE networks deliver the essential elements required for utility wireless communications - the foundation needed for a modern grid?
  • In what ways can Private LTE help utilities to achieve the resiliency, intelligence, security needed to support their business today and in the future?
  • What are some of the critical use cases and applications utilities need to deploy that can be supported by Private LTE?
  • How can new solutions enabled by Private LTE help utilities efficiently and securely control and manage grid endpoints, and improve network coverage to support service territories?
  • How is the device ecosystem evolving to support the maturity of critical applications?
  • If utilities support and participate in shared infrastructure models, how can these interconnected networks help them to achieve individual and collective benefits?

The Utility Guide to Private LTE Special Issue will provide a future vision that illustrates the significant role that Private LTE will play in supporting the grid. How do you envision utilities using Private LTE?
