Wildfire Mitigation and Prevention

Wildfire Mitigation and Prevention with 900 MHz Private Wireless Broadband


Addressing extreme weather and natural disasters is a major goal of grid modernization initiatives. In many regions across the country, the need for utility wildfire mitigation solutions has become increasingly urgent.

Technology and the communications network that supports the grid play a key role in helping utilities address these growing concerns. Today, a variety of solutions, technologies, and tools have emerged to aid utilities in mitigating disasters and wildfire risks. These solutions increase customer satisfaction and improve operational metrics by lessening outage duration and frequency and reducing customer impact.

Cyber and Physical Security

Successfully Managing Utility Grid Security Cyber and Physical Security

Enhancing Cyber and Physical Security with Private Wireless Broadband


Every utility is diligently striving to safeguard the grid against continuously evolving cyber and physical security threats. Utilities face the challenge of integrating more devices, including existing devices with limited security features, as well as new connected devices—sensors, control systems, smart devices, electric vehicles, and distributed energy resources. The growing device landscape increases utilities’ need for a secure, reliable, resilient, utility-grade communication network.

 A 900 MHz private wireless broadband network provides utilities with enhanced control, helping to mitigate potential threats. Utilities have more control over the network design, build, and operation, as well as end-to-end system security, access, and data visibility. A private network offers a smaller and more visible threat landscape.

By owning and managing a private wireless network, utilities benefit from the ability to customize their network to their specific needs. They can integrate cyber tools and capabilities directly from their existing utility data or operations center while selectively enhancing security measures at the network’s edge for optimal protection.

AMI 2.0 and Grid Edge

Improving Grid Edge Communications, Efficiency and Control

Successful evolution to AMI 2.0


Meter technology is advancing, transforming meters into grid sensors— a network of powerful intelligent grid edge computing devices that can run many applications, execute complex calculations at the edge, and control energy devices in real time.

The first generation of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI 1.0) solutions, introduced more than a decade ago, provided utilities with access to more data, enabling new and expanded services for customers and improving resilience and operations. With AMI in place, the backbone infrastructure for the smart meter network was created—opening up the potential to address the increasing need for bandwidth, higher reliability, and better security, all while reducing operational costs.

With meter vendors predicting accelerating growth in megabytes per meter per month, the additional data processing and functionality enabled by AMI 2.0 can help utilities as they build a more resilient grid with a reduced carbon footprint. AMI 2.0 brings enhanced technology to the edge and promises greater control and efficiencies for both consumers and utilities. These technologies can empower customers with greater insights and transparency over their energy usage and costs. For utilities, improved operational efficiency, real time data-driven decision-making, integration of more renewables, and greater customer engagement are among the benefits. Achieving all these requires a reliable and scalable communications network to collect and utilize a broader set of available data.
