An electrical utility with over 1.7 million individuals and businesses in 46 counties relying on their distribution systems for electric power is supported by a SCADA monitored and controlled network. The existing microwave and WAN networks did not extend to all locations.
In order to reach these locations, the data port on the IPR100 was used to connect these locations by Radio over IP. This ultimately improved maintenance support, network reliability and productivity. The IPR100’s not only have data transport capabilities but can also support voice communications for any future expansion.
