Private LTE Becoming an Increasingly Viable Alternative to Public Wireless Carriers
Chantilly, VA - February 5, 2019
Encore Networks today announced its support for private wireless LTE broadband networks in the U.S. and International markets addressing the unique network needs and security concerns of utilities and heavy industrial applications. Utilities, and oil and gas companies often need to build their own wireless networks. Encore is working with them to build out their own private LTE networks for SCADA and Grid modernization.
Private LTE networks will enable utilities to own and manage their own networks without requiring them to share licensed commercial spectrum with other users. Private wireless broadband networks enable secure, reliable, low latency communications that facilitate a unified platform to support the evolving digital, distributed and intelligent power systems. Example applications include electric operations, monitoring and control systems, distributed energy and storage, dynamic customer engagement, and mission critical push-to-talk and other voice communications.
“Utilities and Industrial companies are looking for solutions that enable quick deployment of equipment into the field providing security and reliability. Private wireless broadband networks meet these requirements,” stated Peter Madsen, President and CEO of Encore Networks. “Encore’s industrially hardened routers enable utilities to deploy with commercial LTE services and add private LTE services as they build out their network preserving CAPEX ensuring the highest ROI.”
