Historically, utilities have preferred to own their own communications networks because doing so provided them more control over network reliability, security and coverage. But Long-Term Evolution (LTE) technology, once considered an option only for public wireless carriers, is now available to utilities in a “private” form. As utilities implement more IoT sensors and controls into the grid, the case for building and operating a private, secure LTE network becomes more apparent.
Private LTE offers a game-changing advantage to utilities. It addresses traditional concerns about reliability and security, and also provides flexible and extensible capabilities that facilitate increased productivity and improved grid operations.
