Utilities

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)

Energy utilities in Nigeria and elsewhere are developing ‘smart’ electricity grids that will facilitate more control over energy consumption and costs. key technology areas of the intelligent Grid is integrated two-way communications, which make the smart Grid a dynamic, interactive, real-time infrastructure.”

Intellectual Grids require ‘smart meters’ to avail consumers manage their energy consumption. These device are a key element of AMI and typically sit within wireless mesh grids, gathering utilization data from consumers in a limited geographical area, transmitting it back to the utility’s data center – mostly via a fixed link or cellular network. However, cellular networks are not always ideal for data backhaul for several reasons, including constrained range, restricted bandwidth, a propensity to congestion, and susceptibility to natural and other disasters. There are additionally many geographic areas where cellular coverage does not reach, and maybe never will. BGAN offers a high-quality, low-cost alternative to backhaul utilization data from wireless collector points for AMI deployments. BGAN provides ubiquitous, global coverage, and – as it is a secure network and does not traverse the cyber world or other public networks – is not susceptible to public utilization. Furthermore, its advanced antenna design sanctions for more facile installation to accommodate mounting on pole tops, as well as retaining a connection to the network even when its direction has shifted marginally due to wind or seismic activity. The Inmarsat network is grounded in IP, which the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has already acknowledged will be a paramount Intellectual Grid technology. Its flexible services are secure, reliable and constantly available, meeting other key criteria for utilities.

Disaster Recovery

Business continuity is vital for utilities that provide essential services such as electricity, water and gas to millions of people, so they need to be able to recover immediately from natural or manmade disasters. When a catastrophic event causes terrestrial networks to fail.

Centerbase can rapidly deploy Inmarsat terminals to provide an alternative communications path, enabling them to maintain communications and run critical applications.
