The utility industry is undergoing a comprehensive transformation as it modernizes its systems to build a more efficient and smarter grid. Included in this process is a shift away from legacy communications networks to more modern approaches that use packet technologies to control and protect the grid. The motivation to move away from TDM-based systems, especially SONET/SDH systems, is driven by a desire to converge information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) networks and standardize on a common set of interfaces to reduce capital and operating expenses. In this video you will hear from LightRiver and Ciena on what to consider when making this shift. And choosing the right partner to help ease the journey is paramount. Together LightRiver and Ciena have a long-standing, strong partnership in providing networks that offer the speed, resilience, and scalability its customers need.
