Making the Switch—How One Utility Is Transitioning Seamlessly From Leased Analog to Ethernet

North American electric utilities have long relied on analog leased telecom services for deterministic, low-latency communication for critical protection schemes. However, telecom carriers have begun to discontinue analog, and most digital alternatives offer neither the guaranteed latency nor the synchronous performance required for protection applications. Learn how Consumers Energy, an Michigan-based electric utility, effectively migrated from leased analog to digital circuits for their DTT and POTT schemes while still meeting strict latency, determinism, and asymmetry requirements.
