Effective Migration to Converged IT/OT Networks

Date held: January 17, 2018

For years, many utilities have managed two communications networks: one based on time-division multiplexing (TDM) and tuned for the demanding requirements of operational technology (OT) applications and a second for information technology (IT). With the advent of high-bandwidth packet-based technologies, such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Carrier Ethernet, there is a push to move toward a converged network model to increase the efficiency of assets.

If your utility is moving toward a converged IT/OT network, this webinar will provide valuable information about effective ways to maintain the reliability and performance of critical OT circuits in this new model. Learn how:

  • The SEL ICON preserves the performance characteristics of TDM while using Ethernet, MPLS, or Carrier Ethernet as the WAN transport protocol.
  • SEL software-defined networking (SDN) is improving the security, performance, and manageability of substation Ethernet LANs.
  • New SEL partnerships with Ciena and Juniper Networks are working to develop reliable end-to-end solutions.
