We recently had the pleasure of co-hosting a webinar with the Utility Broadband Alliance (UBBA), dedicated to exploring the wireless supply chain and its impact on transforming utility networks for the modern world.  

I was joined by my colleague Gavin Doyle, Senior Technology Strategy Consultant, Cambridge Consultants and industry peers from Southern LINC and Xcel Energy for discussions on:  

  • How utilities are evolving and their commercial drivers   
  • The wireless requirements of emerging utility use cases  
  • The latest innovations in wireless technology that can serve this market’s needs – including 5G wireless, flexible, software-based implementations and advanced analytics that maximise the value of network telemetry data 

It was a great session with key insights for the road ahead, as utilities look to evolve to support increases in demand, higher expectations on resilience and security, new distributed forms of power generation, storage and load management and various requirements posed by sustainability. 

Watch our webinar on demand to learn more.
