Utilities are under increasing pressure to improve their services, reduce carbon emission, and increase safety. By digitizing their networks, utilities can make their distribution networks more efficient and secure. This digitized network supports the introduce smart IoT devices to achieve better control of network resources and remote assets in real-time. High-resolution video from CCTV cameras is used to increase security, improve safety, and provide better customer services. Advanced voice and video provides the ability for increased collaboration between the remote front-line workers and central office experts. Video surveillance, perimeter intrusion detection, and access control all increase the physical security. The communications network is fundamental to transporting this digitized data efficiently, while continuing to support features, such as mission-critical services (like SCADA), and the monitoring and control of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs).
IP Wave for utilities provides the field proven, solution to support this digitization while at the same time providing optimized support for legacy, mission-critical applications like SCADA, teleprotection, and emergency communications.

IP Wave for Utilities provides IP Optical solutions are optimized for the communications network used by utilities. With IP Wave for Utilties we have helped utilites around the world evolve to become a Utility 2.0.

Our, dual stack, packet technology has been designed with mission critical networks in mind. It provides IP/MPLS to support IT networks and MPLS-TP (deterministic MPLS) to support the mission critical OT services which require low latency, high reliability, deterministic performance and extensive OAM. With extensive Circuit emulation (CES) capabilities the correct packet transport technology can be selected to meet the service needs on a service by service basis. Ribbon’s field proven processes ensure this migration process is risk free. Ribbon’s solution provides a pay-as-you grow architecture, making the transition to packet extremely cost-effective.

Utility to Utelco

What Steps do you Take from Utility to Utelco?

Hide Title
0

UTelcos are competitive telecom operators owned by or related to a utility company (power, water, gas, oil, transportation). They usually begin as a group within the utility company in charge of delivering internal communication services. They can then become a competitive telecom operator under the utility-holding company or government entity. Find out the next steps in our Whitepaper.
