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.
