A few case studies of evolving Utility networks from SONET SDH to MPLS-Calendar


This presentation examines some distinct utility private OT network evolutions from SONET/ SDH to Packet/ Hybrid-Switched technologies. In each of these case studies, the utility took a different approach on evolving their networks; a complete Network Upgrade, two different Ring-by-Ring upgrade approaches, the insertion of an MPLS Node into a SONET network for an eventual Node-by-Node upgrade. Also, examined are some unique approaches for maintaining enduring services; POT, SCADA and teleprotection (Including electromechanical current differential relaying), as well as future proofing their networks for RAS and SIP applications.
