Smart Grid
• Improved reliability & efficiency
• Enabling of renewables & cleantech apps
• Increased consumer engagement
The Drivers – Digital Substation and Smart Distribution Grid
Communication Requirements & Goals
Fully digital high voltage substations and smart
distribution grid require robust, reliable, secure
and flexible communications infrastructure.
Smart Grid implies replacement of analogue
signals, large amount of copper wires and legacy
systems by transition to digital data transmission
over standard Ethernet and IP communications.
The long term goal is to reduce costs while
increasing efficiency by migrating all operational
services and mission-critical applications to use
a unified all-IP communications network.

The Challenge - Need for Flexibility in Substation Ethernet Networks
The Challenge
Move the Utility communications network to make digital substations and
smart distribution grid real, without:
• Making current operating capital investments obsolete
• A massive investment in new technology, procedures and training
• Expanding physical facilities.

The Challenge - Evolution Path From the Legacy Environment to the Future
The Solution
Introduce new technology that provides utilities with a
simple, cost-effective evolutionary path.
This technology should allow customers to handle
higher data rates, adopt new standards and meet new
regulatory requirements;
• Gracefully, in a deliberate, controlled manner
• Without massive “forklift upgrades”
• Without battles for rate increases
Solution must be flexible, future-proof, robust, with a
low-cost of ownership, high-density and handle gigabit
