Critical WAN for Power Utilities

Build a converged network that supports all your critical applications

Nokia Critical WAN for Power Utilities lets you build a secure, reliable, and modern communications network that enhances control and monitoring. It provides the network components and expertise you need to:

  • Enable TDM migration while preserving the integrity of traditional SCADA and teleprotection systems
  • Support new Ethernet- and IP-based protection, SCADA, and video surveillance applications
  • Launch smart grid applications more easily

Our solution helps you transition to a utility-grade converged IP/MPLS and packet optical network that’s ready for growing Ethernet and IP application traffic. It gives you the flexibility to carry IP/MPLS services over an optical or packet microwave transmission layer. And it supports traditional TDM and new IP/Ethernet traffic with the high availability and stringent latency required for applications such as teleprotection.

Succeed with a complete WAN solution

Realize the benefits of an adaptive grid communications network. With our IP/MPLS network for utilities, you can support all traffic types and use one management system for all your fiber, microwave, and copper network assets.
