Autonomous Capabilities for Utility Digital Transformation

Industrial networks enable autonomous technology in the utility sector with the greatest reliability, security, and safety

Is the utility sector ready for the digital transformation of critical infrastructure?

Whether supplying water, sewage, gas, or electricity, utility companies are facing the challenge of replacing aging infrastructure with new, high-performance technology. Autonomous equipment like smart meters, smart sewer systems, and smart grids are on the horizon. The challenge for the utility sector involves implementing the technology in a way that maintains customer relationships and integrates with existing systems.

The Challenge

The right network to support a new era of autonomous utility technology is demanding. It needs to be industrial grade to support remote, rugged environments. It also needs to meet all teleprotection and SCADA applications. Not only that, but it must meet the regulatory requirements for physical and cyber security. Moreover, the operational network needs to be compatible with the business communications network in a way that is easy on maintenance and training requirements. If they want to support autonomous technology, utility companies need to make sure their communications infrastructure ensures reliable performance at the same time as providing capacity and range for their needs.
