Westermo to demonstrate data networking technology at CIRED 2017

Westermo is to demonstrate at CIRED 2017 how it can help electricity distribution companies to install secure, resilient and reliable data networks. With many distributors looking to implement secure Ethernet IP-based communication networks capable of supporting their electricity networks into the future, Westermo industrial networking technology, designed for mission critical and demanding applications, is meeting this challenge.

“Many electricity distribution companies are currently performing significant upgrades to their data communication networks to support a range of enhanced customer services,” explained Arthur Heckels, Sales Director at Westermo. “CIRED offers Westermo the opportunity to demonstrate to the industry how its technology has been deployed by many companies to provide them with greater network security, resilience and reliability.”

CIRED is a biennial international electricity distribution conference and exhibition, which takes place in Glasgow on 12th-15th June 2017, at the Scottish Event Campus. The event provides the opportunity for 1500 electricity distribution delegates to discuss aspects such as cost reduction, environment, regulation, organisation and related IT systems.

Westermo will demonstrate how its Wolverine Ethernet Line Extenders enable existing cable infrastructure to be used to create secure Ethernet IP-based networks. These are being installed by electricity distribution network operators such as Electricity North West to control substations and improve the quality of supply to customers.

Westermo will also show how its range of Ethernet routers, designed for use in demanding applications such as substation automation, can offer resilient and reliable remote access to sites and equipment using ADSL or VDSL broadband and wireless 3G or GPRS. With leased lines no longer available, these devices provide a simple communications upgrade path to ensure legacy remote equipment can be accessed when required.

Westermo experts will be available on booth F07 throughout the event to discuss how the company’s networking technology can help support data communication network upgrades. To register for the event, go to www.cired-2017.org.
