Utilities across the world are undertaking transformational grid modernization projects. A combination of regulatory incentives, business innovation, and the continuous search for greater efficiency has lead to a variety of smart grid pilot projects. Learning from these projects has utilities asking how they can:

  • Avoid the higher CapEx and OpEx of deploying an application-specific network
  • Address the lack of interoperability between proprietary systems
  • Use their existing installed base while deploying new solutions
  • By taking an architectural approach, utilities are able to design and deploy an end-to-end communication infrastructure that creates greater value by enabling multiple applications while lowering operating expenses.

    Learn how utilities from North America, China, Europe, and Australia are delivering more from their operations on a single, intelligent and secure platform. The Cisco GridBlocks architecture provides a framework for integrating legacy devices with new partner systems across the entire power delivery chain. On this webcast Cisco will introduce the latest solutions in the Connected Grid portfolio, including the new field area network solution, WAN solutions for substations, and Connected Grid services to enable business and technical architecture deployments.

    Join executives from Cisco, Itron, and industry-leading utilities for this webcast and Q&A session in which they discuss the new Cisco Connected Grid solutions, products, and services to modernize the electrical grid.
