While the benefits of distribution automation are clear, it is rarely used in rural or suburban areas due to the high cost of rolling out hard wired solutions, such as fibre optics. Cellular coverage is too spotty in low population areas and can fail during emergency or weather events. To deploy Distribution Automation over a wide area, electric utilities need a bearer that can cover long distances affordably and at the same time provide mission-critical reliability.
Tait Gridlink solves both of these problems. This innovative solution utilizes the mission critical, trunked voice and data DMR network. This means it offers excellent and extensive coverage at a very low cost and it is built with resiliency at its core.
