Utility Telecom: Standardizing Communications with Private LTE

While Private LTE (PLTE) has been talked about by utilities for the past few years, the lack of spectrum available with the bandwidth required has made it difficult to practically consider PLTE as a solution for their growing telecommunications needs. Recent developments in FCC rule makings and the CBRS auction have given utilities access to spectrum capable of supporting PLTE.  

PLTE gives utilities the benefits of a global, standardized communications solution that has wide support and many manufacturers, along with the ability to own and operate their own network. It provides four key components utilities need in the communications networks: high availability, high reliability, security, and low latency.  

During this webinar, utility and industry leaders discuss PLTE spectrum, technology, and share their perspectives, viewpoints, and experiences on how they are planning to evaluate and/or deploy PLTE networks. Southern Linc is the only utility in the US to have fully deployed a PLTE network and will provide valuable insight into their experiences and lessons learned.
