The "Smart Grid" era is upon one, as energy suppliers around the globe invest in new technologies to optimize antiquated grids. With an end-to-end digital, two-way intelligent communications infrastructure, utilities will be able to capture details about how energy is transmitted and consumed in real time. As a result, they will be able to enhance electricity generation and distribution, reduce peak consumption by shifting demand loads and boost efficiency through improved diagnostics. The end result: the ability to serve more customers with less energy supply.
