Sustainability is just one of the factors driving modernisation of the utility grid and the migration to a more efficient, reliable, and interconnected Smart Grid. In order for utility companies to fully capitalise on the opportunities these advancements provide, they must ensure their network can fully support the applications that enhance services and reduce costs.
The utility providers’ network is the critical link from the electricity, gas and water solutions deployed in the field to the central operations centre tasked with optimising these implementations. The industrial communications network must deliver high throughput, low latency data delivery from on-site monitoring and management applications directly to operators – continuously and in real-time – so they have the analytics they need to achieve and maintain peak efficiency.
The technology in our range is built for critical networks to ensure there is no single point of failure, providing extreme reliability for business-critical utility applications. Our solutions support rapid scalability and enabling real-time information and data exchange, allowing utility companies to achieve new levels of asset utilisation and manageability, while ensuring security.
Whether required for operational efficiency, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), analytics, distributed automation, SCADA, or substation monitoring, Madison can offer a range of solutions including industrial wireless routers and mesh networks, fibre optic networks, Ethernet switches and converters, asset and process monitoring, thermal imaging cameras, and energy storage solutions.
