FREE WEBINAR: Harness the Power of Private LTE Networks for Utilities
August 18th, 2020 - 11am PT | 2pm ET | Register today!

WHY ATTEND:

Historically, utilities have preferred to own their own communications networks as it allows them more control over network reliability, security and coverage. Long-Term Evolution (LTE) technology, once thought of only for public wireless carriers, is now available to utilities in a “private” form.  

Private LTE is a game changer because it addresses traditional reliability and security concerns, but also provides flexible and extensible capabilities that can help a utility drive productivity and improved grid operations. 

As utilities implement more IoT sensors and controls into the grid, the case for building and operating a private, secure LTE network becomes more apparent.

Register for this webinar and discover:

  • Current and future trends for private LTE networks
  • Why utilities need to advance their communication technologies
  • The roadmap for deploying and operating a private network
  • Recommendations for working with the right solution partners
