Webinar: Communications for grid control and protection – now and next

Power utilities face new challenges and risks with their grid control and protection systems as generation evolves at the transmission and distribution levels. Sign up for this on-demand webinar to learn how utilities are addressing these challenges by using their IP/MPLS WANs to support existing and new approaches to control and protection.

Topics Covered
  • Research into power grid control and protection challenges and risks, with a focus on the Great Britain power system and projects to address future needs

  • Lessons learned in supporting critical utility communications on IP/MPLS, including use of QoS, network synchronization and security

  • Teleprotection over IP/MPLS service structures and settings to optimize performance and current differential protection over Ethernet pilots

  • IP/MPLS as a foundation for future network expansion and services
