With organizations facing the impact of aging infrastructure and an unpredictable economic environment, technologies to monitor performance and resolve issues in real-time have become vital. Next generation communications are adapting to better assist your utilities operations by responding rapidly, managing critical assets efficiently and ensuring safety.
Our team recently attended DistribuTech 2019 in New Orleans, LA, to discuss the future of energy and how we are paving the way with communications solutions that are transforming the way we communicate. Here are our key highlights for the future of your utility operations:
Critical Connect delivers simple, flexible, scalable intra and inter-utility communications across town, across state or across the nation. With one link, utilities can connect with other utilities, public safety agencies, as well as utility personnel outside of LMR coverage – providing dynamic, seamless Push-To-Talk communication whenever and wherever needed.
Ally is a single platform where you can capture incident information in real-time across multiple devices, analyze incident trends using easy, built-in reports and act on improved insights for more proactive security planning.
End-To-End Surveillance & Security
Supercharging your utility operations and unified communications with advanced HD video surveillance systems will help keep your end-to-end processes streamlined and secured with high levels of service reliability. That means electric utility companies can identify where power lines have been damaged in a storm and take swift action, water utility companies can proactively monitor the purity of a city’s water supply and nuclear power plants can ensure their perimeter is more secure than ever. Our unique video solution offers video analytics built into a broad range of cameras, artificial intelligence, machine learning platform, high definition video stream management with smart codec technology and easy integration with existing camera systems. Key use cases include remote substation/plant monitoring with real-time alerts, perimeter intrusion protection, unusual motion detection with self-learning analytics making video actionable, smart video storage with fast people/object search techniques in large video recordings. Make guesswork a thing of the past in your utility operations with trusted video intelligence solutions, Avigilon.
Grid Modernization – Private Broadband
Providing new effective levels of safety, reliability and service delivery to enable better decision making in a system that demands convergence of mission critical voice, video and data is more important than multiple silo systems running off their own. It’s about delivering new ways to connect multiple grid assets and people to information and to each other. There’s an increased number of utility assets with a wide range of data bandwidth and capacity needs, the demand for mission critical performance and high-assurance security compliance requires an integrated converged solution across multiple networks (narrowband to broadband), devices and applications to achieve high reliability, availability and redundancy. To get the most out of a world that offers richer real-time information, you need a complete ecosystem that encompasses public/private LTE networks, smart applications, purpose-built, intuitive devices and comprehensive services. Count on our LTE solutions to deliver anywhere, anytime access to multimedia information with the priority, resilience and security you demand.
