Many of today’s utilities are dealing with aging communications infrastructure at the very same time when they most need advanced technology to enable real-time monitoring, intelligent analytics, improved security and sustainability. How can a smarter network help them realize digital transformation for true grid modernization?

Much like the fossil fuels of yesterday, big data is a key driver of today’s economic growth. As utilities increasingly rely on real-time data, digital transformation becomes paramount. Modern utilities require more secure and reliable communications systems to facilitate data management, implement real-time monitoring, leverage intelligent analytics, and enable automated systems for improved safety, security and sustainability, as well as increased profitability.

Upgraded network infrastructure empowers utilities to take advantage of digital transformation and realize true grid modernization based on automation and artificial intelligence (AI) technology. This not only enables more efficient and effective utility operations, such as active control of energy distribution systems and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), but also provides tools to better face growing challenges such as cyber security, regulatory compliance, natural weather disasters and the need to decarbonize the energy supply chain while addressing rising global energy demands.
