Webinar Agenda

As a distribution system operator, you need to extend the reach of smart grid into your networks to fulfil your Internet of Things strategy - from distribution automation to substation automation, distributed generation and advanced metering infrastructure.

Field area networks (FAN) can be enabled by a variety of communication technologies but this webinar will focus on long-term evolution (LTE), “a natural evolution of cellular and WiMAX technologies”, says Nokia. 

In the US, Nokia and AT&T have joined forces to bring private LTE spectrum to the utility industry to allow power companies to build out a converged FAN for mission critical distribution connections.

But what are the benefits of a private LTE network and how does it converge mobile data into a single communication network?

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Utility use cases for a private LTE network
  • Technical considerations for deploying LTE
  • How LTE can improve grid cybersecurity 
  • How FAN interoperates with Wide Area Network (WAN), Local Area Network (LAN) and Neighbourhood Area Network (NAN)
  • How Nokia’s service aggregation router extends IP/MPLS services over LTE
