Interest in private LTE-based field area network (FAN) communications is growing as utilities search for new ways to increase grid control, automate operations, reduce cost and support smart grid services. Private LTE networks offer utilities a chance to address these challenges, future-proof FAN connectivity and prepare for the opportunities that 5G and IoT will bring.
Join our energy, cyber security and private LTE expert for a webinar that explores how utilities are using the first real-world private LTE FANs. Discover what’s working, how challenges are being overcome, and how pervasive connectivity of LTE is opening new doors for utilities and their customers.
