Distribution Automation Communication Solutions

Utilities adopting Distribution Automation increased stability and reduced operations costs. A part of it is 5G/LTE, which is best for anything needing more bandwidth, better coverage, and lower latency for applications. Using AMI, FLISR, and SCADA applications with 5G/LTE technology has proven to increase the reliability and efficiency of distributed energy resources.

BEC Product Solutions - Utility FLISR Application Diagram


FLISR or Fault location, isolation, and service restoration have automatic sectionalizing, along with automatic circuit reconfiguration. DA operations are done by working with software and field devices. Dedicated communication networks prevent any outages by knowing exactly where any fault may be.

BEC Product Solutions - Utility SCADA Application Diagram


SCADA or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems are needed for industrial organizations to keep up efficiency. It also helps lessen downtime by using data to fix any system issues. Modbus-enabled equipment makes connecting easy to use and view critical systems.

BEC Product Solutions - Utility AMI Backhaul Application Diagram

AMI Backhaul

AMI or Advanced metering infrastructure is a system that allows a two-way communication system between utilities and customers. It works by using smart meters, communication networks, and data management systems together. AMI has progressed well over the years with improved coverage, bandwidth requirements, plus many others. Using LTE meets these requirements and more since it can provide service when AMI technologies are unable to do so.

Video Surveillance

Video surveillance is vital to keep substations for utilities safe since many are remote and unstaffed. Along those lines, using LTE will lessen the risk of any video delay since it has the capability to provide the bandwidth and capacity required for today's IP video surveillance systems.
