KEMA – Smart Grid Communications Challenges

Check out a well-written paper by Mark Burke at KEMA about key challenges utilities face as they deploy smart grid communications. He cites the three key areas of concern utilities as -- security, reliability, and scalability. In addition, the paper highlights some of the new solutions and approaches utilities are taking to reduce these communications risks.
Tropos' strong security architecture and FIPS 140-2 certification mentioned as well as one of our customers, Glendale Water & Power!

The paper, “A Smarter Smart Grid - How to Plan and Deploy Your Communications Layer” was recently published in Public Utility Fortnightly’s e-newsletter, Spark.
