Utilities are changing and their communication networks must 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. Wireless technology suppliers have a massive opportunity to support this transformation, enabling new utility use cases, such as:
Electrical grid automation, including AI and edge compute devices
Precision load control
Push-to-talk, mission critical communications
Augmented reality for smart worker operations and maintenance.
However, the communication requirements of such use cases are complex and may not be met by legacy SCADA equipment or existing commercial off-the-shelf solutions, encouraging a sharper focus on the power of private networks.
This webinar is essential viewing for wireless technology suppliers looking to serve this market with wireless solutions and support their utility customers to transition their operations. We’ll be joined by Southern Linc and Xcel Energy to explore:
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.
Join Jacob Reeb, VP of Wireless and Digital Services at Cambridge Consultants, and Gavin Doyle, Senior Technology Strategy Consultant, Cambridge Consultants, for this webinar on September 22nd at 3 pm EST.
Further details, including how to register and additional speakers, to be added soon.
