Chalk Talk – Network Transformation for Utilities SONET to Smart Grid
Utilities face many common challenges: limitations of operational expense, infrastructure upgrades, resiliency, and compliance and security. Implementing changes to an OT Network can place strains on operating costs, human resource capabilities, and operational control.

Ward Cunningham discusses how Ciena makes network transformation possible for utilities.
