- Utilities deploying Smart Grid applications can now wirelessly extend mission-critical IP/MPLS services to grid locations in a converged field area network (FAN) using LTE/3G
- The Nokia 7705 SAR-Hm connects field devices with IP/MPLS and wirelessly to 3G/LTE networks, enabling advanced power distribution automation to better realize the full potential of Smart Grids
- Utilities can now use wireless infrastructure to introduce IP/MPLS services to locations and devices that previously lacked adequate connectivity
- The Nokia 7705 SAR-Hm enables applications that improve grid reliability and power quality, allowing for automation and supports green energy initiatives
- The SAR-Hm uses standards-based LTE/3G and IP/MPLS technologies, and security features in both hardware and software implementations, including the award winning Network Group Encryption (NGE)
- This provides the highest levels of reliability, security and scalability for mission-critical applications and services and to protect against cyberattacks.
- With this platform, proven secure and reliable IP/MPLS services of the Nokia Service Router portfolio are extended with LTE/3G and Wi-Fi.
- The SAR Hm expands Nokia's mission critical WAN solution set, already deployed in over 100 utility customers globally.
