Smart Grid Network Architecture WAN (Wide Area Network) FAN (Field Area Network) NAN (Neighborhood Area Network) HAN (Home Area Network) Holistic 4G Network addressing: Real Time, QoS, Broadband & Mobility Requirements
Why do we need 4G for the Middle Mile? • Broadband • Video surveillance application to monitor the Grid • Instant software upgrades • Instant data collection for Business Intelligence Analysis • Support future AMI broadband applications • Low Latency • Utility applications that demand sub 100ms latency • Real-time consumption measurement by the utility call center • QoS • Allow real-time activation of critical DA devices • Voice & Data applications • Mobility • Line truck crews connectivity to Smart Grid applications
5 Major Communication Options • Wireless vs. Wire line • Private vs. Public • Broadband vs. Narrowband • Licensed vs. Licensed Exempt Spectrum • WiMAX vs. LTE
Selection criteria • Commitment to WiMAX • Experience • Size of deployments • Number of WiMAX deployments WW • Years of experience • Optimized SPG connectivity solutions • All outdoor link reliability and availability • Micro and macro configurations for tower and pole deployments • Modular architecture that reduces operation complexity • High-availability configurations • License and license-exempt frequencies • Maximize Return on infrastructure investments • Upgrade path to future WiMAX versions • Scalable pay-as-you-grow architecture • Shared infrastructure for multiple frequencies
