Overcoming Performance Degradation When Migrating Protection to Packet-Based Networks
Date held: August 26, 2020
Duration: 1 hour
Many utilities are wrestling with the challenges of updating aging wide-area network infrastructure and managing migration from time-division multiplexing (TDM) to packet-based network technology. During this webinar, you'll gain a better understanding of how SEL technologies address those challenges and how to successfully implement a migration strategy to packet-based networks.
You'll learn about:
Key success factors of moving to a converged information technology (IT)/operational technology (OT) network, including security, ownership, labor rules, complexity, and traffic prioritization.
Potential performance degradation of teleprotection over Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks impacting latency, asymmetry, and healing times.
The impact of asymmetry degradation on communications performance for line current differential protection.
How SEL ICON virtual synchronous networking (VSN) helps address these challenges.
Real-world results from three utilities—Central Lincoln PUD, Hawaiian Electric, and Consumers Energy—that have implemented solutions.
