Cisco: Extending the Reach of IoT – 4G LTE Secure Connectivity for Power and Space Constrained Deployments
The spotlight at the European Utility Week conference is focused on the newest member of the Cisco 800 Series Industrial Router family. The Cisco 807 Industrial Integrated Services Router fits in space constrained areas and consumes minimal power while delivering high performance secure connectivity over LTE networks. For utilities this means pushing grid reliability and power optimization initiatives to areas previously out of reach. Within the extended enterprise, customers can now securely connect and manage power and space constrained remote assets such as ticketing machines and kiosks.
Early adoption of the new offering has been with utility distribution automation programs seeking to extend the reach of fault location, isolation and restoration systems by capitalizing on the Cisco 807’s support for IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 compliance and simple integration with SCADA systems. Extending power optimization programs such as Volt-VAR optimization for driving grid efficiency in previously unaddressed areas has been another natural fit for the Cisco 807 in ruggedized, space constrained areas.
Pushing the envelope to new areas of grid management with utilities has been an essential element of the overall Cisco IoT networking portfolio. The introduction of the Cisco 807 complements a broad array of solutions offering near term impact with grid reliability and operational efficiency. These include:
