Distribution Automation

Electric utilities can deploy BGAN for automated monitoring of elements along power distribution lines, especially in remote areas and cellular dark spots. In these cases, a single, high-availability connection at an access point that is fed by distribution devices (as reclosers, fault indicators, capacitor banks, and other components) may be the best solution for monitoring and control.

This satellite solution supports the Smart Grid concept by enabling utilities to maintain continuous surveillance of their distribution network for voltage fluctuations, outages and service demands. The compact, rugged build of the BGAN terminals makes them suitable for pole mounting at most locations, while global coverage and reliable service availability can ensure 24/7 visibility along distribution lines, extending the network to reach 100% of the utility’s customer base.
