Presentation Descriptions
How Cellular IoT and Intelligent Edge Enables a More Efficient and Reliable Grid

By connecting the grid with cellular, utilities can transform their operations by continuously monitoring changing demand and gaining actionable insights in order to:

  • Prevent power interruption
  • Prevent loss of revenue
  • Increase customer satisfaction
  • Reduce downtime and service interruptions
What Does Low-Power Wide Area (LPWA) Networks and 5G Mean for Utilities

The use of LPWA and 5G will make it even easier and more cost-effective to collect information from the grid and monitor energy usage in real-time that will help utilities to:

  • Better predict energy usage and optimize energy delivery to lower costs and reduced costs for consumers
  • Collect more real-time data on grid health to increase reliability
  • Reduce costs to service and maintain grid infrastructure  
How Vehicle Area Networking Can Reduce Operating Costs and Enable a Safer, More Productive Mobile Workforce

Workforce Vehicle Area Networks (VAN) combined with location aware management tools, and reporting insights, utilities can efficiently and securely connect their mobile workforce to the resources they need to safely perform their jobs. By implementing a VAN, utilities can:

  • Reduce the operational expenses to manage secure connectivity and to lower fuel costs
  • Decrease response time and lower fuel usage with real-time, location tracking and dispatch tools
  • Take advantage of dedicated public safety networks and maintain communications even when cellular networks are down
