A utility needs a Smart Grid. With it, you can gather, process, and analyze huge amounts of data.
- Collect and manage data needed to manage the two-way energy flow created by the the integration of small rooftop solar sources, electric vehicles, and intermittent renewable energy sources into your supply portfolio.
- Reduce operational costs and improve customer satisfaction.
- Shorten or eliminate outages.
To achieve your Smart Grid goals, you need efficient, reliable analytics and software solutions. And you need a communications network that helps you maximize the value of the data that fuels your applications. These are the most important investments you’ll make as you build the Smart Grid that delivers measurable benefits to your utility.
Meeting the Challenges of the Future
The Smart Grid foundation you put in place today must do more than simply respond to today’s needs. It must also enable the future. It’s a future in which you will need to connect and integrate many more devices—a future in which you will face the challenges of machine-to-machine communication, big data, and artificial intelligence.
This is the future of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It will bring you unprecedented speed and efficiency. It will help you deliver new services to customers. With IIoT, you will be able to analyze problems faster, better control costs, and address the challenge of climate change.
