The Future of Power Grids

5 Trends and Their Effect on Utility Communications

Power utility networks are becoming smarter, automated and more connected, as they gradually transform into Smart Grids. Looking forward, there are several key trends that drive the design of tomorrow’s utility networks – most of which are closely connected with the rise of IoT (Internet of Things) – and which need to be accommodated by adequate communication solutions:

  1. Migration to next-gen communications
  2. Distributed energy and renewables
  3. Automation, remote sensing and intelligent control
  4. OT and IT integration
  5. Cyber security

This white paper reviews these power grid trends and their effect on utility communications.
