As more and more distribution assets are connected to the grid operations center, there is an opportunity to gain better insights and telemetric information that serves to inform and enable greater levels of control. In a similar manner, the explosion of the Internet of Things is bringing new dimensions to the ability to link localized sensor and control schemes. The convergence of these two areas now enable a new dimension of expanded and more granular control. This webinar will cover the sensors that enable this, the communications networks that unlock this potential and the enterprise and operational systems need to orchestrate this.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND: AnyoneIndividuals interested in Distribution Planning, IT Planning, Customer Operations and Marketing.
