Smart Grid Networks: Public Versus Private

Thursday, March 3, 2011 8:30am San Francisco / 11:30am New York / 5:30pm Paris and Frankfurt

An important debate central to smart grid deployments pits the use of public cellular networks (operated by fixed and wireless service providers) versus the private network “mesh” infrastructures being developed by utilities for smart grid communications. While the arguments for each side tend to hinge upon costs and reliability, coverage and ownership, all network operators stand to gain as the emerging smart grid communications market grows from $2.2 billion in 2009 to $4.9 billion by 2016, according to Pike Research. 

  • What benefits exist for utilities in leveraging existing network infrastructure? (i.e. lower capital investment, increased time-to-market opportunities, scalability)
  •  Are private networks better suited to develop superior coverage and improved latency?
  • What are the considerations in terms of costs, installation, and interoperability?
  • What are the differences between Europe and North America? (Policy and regulation, pricing plans for public carriers, etc.?
