Carrier Ethernet vs MPLS in Power Utility Communications

What to consider when migrating to next-gen operational networks


The SONET/SDH transport networks in use at power utilities for many years are now rapidly becoming obsolete. Modern broadband packet-based transport networks are clearly the solution, but they come in two flavors: Carrier Ethernet and MPLS (including MPLS-TP).

This presentation introduces these two technologies, asks whether they can address the requirements of power utilities, and compares their suitability in the context of operational networks. Threats to communications security are discussed in depth.
