Demystifying Satellite Communications for the Smart Grid


Utility companies need to establish a network infrastructure that meets security, reliability, and latency requirements to support smart grid applications. The challenge is to extend these services, which include SCADA, telemetry, AMI backhaul, and distribution automation to the entire service area-even difficult to reach locations. It's a short list of network technologies that can meet these requirements, especially when utilities also demand a cost-effective, easy to integrate, and scalable solution. 

In an insightful report from iDirect, find out why satellite is the best option for delivering cost-effective, reliable, broadband connectivity to any location. Today's satellite networks are enterprise-class platforms built on IP; offering seamless integration with existing communications technology. In addition, satellite now delivers up to 99.99 percent network availability and meets new security regulations, such as AES encryption. Get the facts on satellite for the smart grid and learn how satellite services can deliver the security, latency, and reliability required for all core utility applications.  Download the report.
