About this talk

It requires a wide variety of deployed and supported use cases to continue improving the safe, reliable, and efficient delivery of power. With the ever-increasing operational reliance on these connected power system assets, the industry remains focused on their underlying operation networks. The scale of assets being deployed within utilities will rival the largest communication networks ever built. Management automation for grid security, substation and electrical distribution is essential to meeting these challenges. Learn how to improve system reliability and security with the latest innovations, including software defined networking together with Cisco’s purpose-built for utilities networking portfolio. In this webinar, we will cover: - Best practices for WAN and LAN automation in substation scenarios, - New industrial routing, switching and management capabilities, - The role of automation in managing a large-scale distribution/feeder network, - Automating security policies across the power grid.
