A viable connectivity option for critical smart grid services? Today’s satellite.

Learn about mission critical smart grid services, and why satellite is a good option to deliver these applications. In a report from Navigant (formerly Pike Research), "Smart Meter Backhaul Communications and the Role of Broadband Satellite," you’ll learn why smart meter backhaul and distribution automation have become two big priorities for smart grid success. While wireless technologies are often considered options for extending these services to difficult to reach locations, experts are concerned about the availability, scalability, and security of both private and public cellular networks. satellite offers the coverage, reliable access, security and performance needed to deliver crucial smart grid services.

Here's an excerpt from the report:

"Modern satellite communications are a strong contender for AMI backhaul and DA applications, offering coverage even in hard-to-reach areas. The scalability, performance options, reliability, and security of this technology, now even more cost-effective with new terminal and router equipment, make satellite a very suitable technology for these applications. "

The push for smart grid efficiency has fueled the need for faster, ubiquitous communications.
