Optimizing distribution automation and renewables integration with private LTE networks

Distribution automation in medium and low voltage grids and integration of distributed renewable generation and storage are key requirements for power grid modernization. With automation, power utilities can improve electricity reliability, enhance operational efficiency and safety, and optimize grid performance. But the multiple, independent, and application specific field area networks (FANs) that currently connect endpoints cannot support advanced distribution automation requirements. A single, purpose-built, combined private LTE and IP/ MPLS network provides the secure convergence, capacity, resiliency, and quality of service (QoS) needed for the volume and variety of data that will enable intelligent distribution automation and renewables integration.
