Power Utilities
Communication needs at all levels

Communication needs at all levels

Until recently, there was no need for power utilities to make significant changes to their infrastructure. The way electrical power was delivered to industrial clients and households was straightforward. But with the cut backs on nuclear power plants, the breakthrough of solar energy, the strong growth of wind farms and the introduction of smart metering, the landscape has changed completely.

In order to enable flexible power generation and distribution, investments in IT infrastructure are mandatory. OTN Systems saw this change coming and initiated the development of XTran in 2010. A collaboration with various power utilities, electrical contractors, key players in the industry and standardization bodies was set up to fine-tune the product for the future. Today, XTran is the only packet based platform that perfectly matches the needs of a modern power utility.
