Leveraging "Power" Data...
How stable is the grid?How accurate are online readings?What happens when power comes back on after an outage?
As utility operations grow "smarter" and more information-driven, they increasingly rely on advanced technology infrastructures and real-time, automated, interactive communications. Armed with a new caliber of timely data, progressive companies can offer differentiated, usage-based services, and leverage automated control and monitoring to speed problem resolution and bolster profitability.
Translation: there's more business riding on sharing—and safeguarding—real-time information than ever before. As Home Area Networks (HANs), Smart Grids, wireless communications and other diverse systems intersect, assessing the robustness of converged infrastructures becomes paramount to ensuring accuracy. And reliability.
