For metropolitan transit authorities with aging communication networks, the choice to upgrade their entire network infrastructure can be costly and sometime prohibitive. Yet for some transit authorities, it can be more cost effective to use circuit to packet converters to upgrade their communication system.
For one Transit Authority located in the Western U.S., this was the best solution possible. After first deciding to upgrade its aging SONET network that connected more than 50 stations, to run on a 10 Gigabit Ethernet communication network, the transit authority found it to be much more expensive and time consuming that originally anticipated.
Engage was thrilled to meet with Utility representatives at the UTC 2016 show.
Numerous people stopped by our Engage “Bunker” booth to learn more about the impending end of Telco’s leased lines and how Utilities can transition.
We brought an awareness of what the future of TDM communication will soon be and how it will drastically change due to the upcoming IP migration. We found that many of the people from large utility companies and cooperatives are facing the same common dilemma. We then presented them a cost effective way to painlessly transition to Ethernet-based communications.
Utilities Face the End of Analog
The FCC is currently embarking on the biggest communication transformation in more than a century. Dubbed the IP transition, it involves getting rid of the old analog telephone network we’ve used for decades and transitioning to IP-based communication services.
The transition is due to lobbying by major telecommunications companies including AT&T, who see the old analog systems as costly and inefficient compared to Internet-based communications.
Are Utilities Prepared for the IP Transition?
With the impending end of traditional landline communications that Utilities have relied on for years to control substation assets, utilizes need to find a solution to migrate to packet-based wireless and IP/Ethernet-based network services.
Engage Set to Attend UTC Telecom and Technology Conference
Engage is excited to attend the upcoming national UTC Telecom and Technology Conference on May 4 and 5, in Denver, Colorado.
Engage has been an active participant in both the regional and national Utilities Telecom Council (UTC) shows for more than 10 years, since our products and solutions provide utilities a easy and cost-effective way to transition from legacy leased line circuits.
