Utilities companies are planning to transform their networks to support the fully connected world of our future. New paradigms like smart buildings and the Internet of Things are putting pressure on utility networks as these operators innovate to adapt to the changing needs of their customers.
Chuck will discuss moving from SONET/SDH networks that are inherently synchronized to packet-based data delivery networks that must be synchronized using the newer precision time protocol (PTP). He’ll cover profile descriptions, best deployment strategies for these profiles and special requirements for utility networks.
