Communications for grid automation face challenging conditions when operating below the tree line. Buildings, vegetation, and interference reduce the range and performance of some communication options. However, licensed frequencies in the 400-MHz and 900-MHz bands provide the reliability required for high speed, non-line-of-sight communication.

By offering the right balance of data rates, propagation range, and interference mitigation, S&C’s SpeedNet SDR Software Defined Radios provide a resilient mesh network for your grid automation and control needs.
