ABOUT THIS EVENT
The industry wide effort to improve reliability and efficiency of the grid is forcing the evolution of FANs to an unprecedented scale. This session will have three speakers from two utilities. Topic 1 – How to build a multi-service FAN to support a range of critical applications including DMS, AMI, DR, DER and DA. The time per site, per pole, setting up, tracking, and deploying devices must be reduced. The scale and security challenges in the FAN are independent of available technologies i.e., 5G, pLTE, WiSUN, LORA, NB-IOT, etc. Topic 2 - Hardware supporting “zero-touch” (ZT) provisioning, configuration, and management are essential to improve efficiency while advancing security requirements for a connected world. Achieving advanced provisioning and security requires solutions capable of secure boot via Trusted Platform Management (TPM) and communication utilizing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). Topic 3 - Network orchestration will provide automation needed to reduce OpEx, time to deploy and limit human interaction increasing reliability and security.
