Times are tough for today’s utility companies. The challenge of keeping customers happy and employees safe in a world of ever increasing demand and cost pressure. A rise in cyber attacks and threats to network security. Changing regulations and new environmental mandates. How do you maximise operational efficiency without compromising safety and security? Here's three key recommendations.
Step One - Stay Secure with a Reliable, Resilient Mission Critical Network
Fact: 67% of companies report one or more security compromises causing disruption.¹ Fact: Since 2000, natural disasters have cost the global economy $2.5 Trillion.² In this uncertain world, a reliable and resilient mission critical network is imperative to keep your everyday operations running smoothly, even in times of crisis.
Step Two - Go with Proven Mission Critical Communications like TETRA
With over two million users in more than 120 countries, TETRA is proven and trusted. It’s a dedicated network designed to empower utilities with greater safety and efficiency, while delivering the continuity of service and network control your customers expect.
TETRA gives you seamless voice and data communications at all times including during sudden peaks in demand and emergencies. It stays focused on safety with applications like Man Down and GPS tracking. And it looks to the future, paving the way for convergence with LTE for reduced complexity and cost.
Step Three - Expand your Visibility, Enhance your Control
Controlling resources is a big challenge for utilities. With hundreds, if not thousands, of people working across multiple facilities and on the go, how do you keep track of everyone? And everything? Motorola's mission critical technology does the trick.
With Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, it gives you greater visibility of your assets and infrastructure. It provides the process automation and monitoring necessary to achieve more productivity and safer operations. Plus the security, flexibility and resilience required to maintain control during unforeseen emergencies.
