The need for wireless broadband in the energy and utility sectors (13th Sept)
Recorded 13th September 2022
The energy and utility sectors are going through a time of unprecedented change, driven largely by the drive for “net zero” and “smart grids”. A shift towards renewable and more localised energy sources, coupled to a greater reliance on digital technology and automation, has transformed these industries.
The sector is now actively envisioning how new wireless broadband communications technologies, and the cloud, can help them harness the power of the growing wave of connected devices and data. These technologies will replace traditional narrowband telemetry, tele-control and tele-protection systems, and enable utilities to move increased volumes of data from smart meters, sensors, and other devices to the cloud, where more effective and efficient analysis can be performed and acted upon.
This webinar focuses on the wireless broadband technologies capable of providing the bandwidth required to support this proliferation of devices, and the associated data collection requirements.
Topics covered include:
- The limitations of existing narrowband telemetry/SCADA systems
- The opportunities, and limitations, of 4G and 5G Private Networks
- Fixed Wireless Broadband Technologies
- Identifying and scaling radio spectrum requirements
