SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and EMS (Energy Management System) systems are a critical part of a utility company’s strategy for monitoring and controlling distribution networks down to the substation level. Most major electric utilities in North America have made significant investments in implementing SCADA/EMS technology with the added ability to generate information used for metering, marketing and customer service.
Many of the benefits of SCADA/EMS technology hinge upon the reliability of the underlying communications system. Multiple Address System (MAS) radio, microwave, fiber, etc. are often chosen as primary communications systems depending upon the application.
