Join us at the Africa Utilities Telecom Council 2020 virtual event

Africa UTC (AUTC) is pleased to announce its first-ever virtual annual conference (October 28-29).  Francis Baestaens will give a presentation about “Augmented MPLS-TP packet based networks enabling reliable transmission of teleprotection communications and new revenue streams” on October 28 at 2:00 PM.

Grid Protection communications is amongst the most time critical applications and requires high telecom network availability, low bit error rates, extremely accurate transmission and latency control by the telecoms network. The presentation will give a brief overview of the eligible packet based networks. MPLS-TP being the best packet based network, both endorsed by the power utility sector and suppliers, will be compared with the traditional SDH in the specific cases of teleprotection and current differential protection. Specific augmented MPLS-TP features will be described and discussed. Moreover, Francis will focus on how this new network can enable new revenue streams for utilities.
