iDirect's Satellite and the Smart Grid's Infographic 2013

  1. 1. SATELLITE AND THE SMART GRID UTILITY CO. POWER GENERATION SUBSTATION AUTOMATION DISTRIBUTION AUTOMATION SMART METER BACKHAUL MOBILITY AND DISASTER RECOVERY BUSINESS CONTINUITY AND BACK-UP Need: Monitoring power being produced and coming onto the grid Need: Capturing SCADA data in remote locations Need: Monitoring changing loads, generation and failure conditions Need: Collecting smart meter data in rural locations. Need: Connecting employees with communications in the field Need: Providing primary network back-up to maintain communication Satellite: Connects remote green power generation sites to the core communications network Satellite: Supports SCADA monitoring and broadband applications like video and VoIP Satellite: Backhauls distribution automation data from DA sensors to operations centers Satellite: Backhauls smart meter data from AMI concentrators to operations centers Satellite: Delivers connectivity on demand to any location across a utility’s coverage area Satellite: Handles network activity across entire coverage area when primary communication fails MORE DATA, BIG OPPORTUNITIES $2.1 BILLION Global revenue generated by VSAT and BGAN equipment and services will total more than $2.1 billion cumulatively between 2012 and 2020 (Navigant). $527 Million Nearly $527 million in VSAT equipment revenue worldwide 2012-2020 (Navigant). REVENUE (MILLIONS) $400 $350 Outdoor Remote Technology: Designed for harsh environments SERVICE REVENUE WILL TOTAL $300 THE IDIRECT ADVANTAGE $1.4 BILLION EQUIPMENT REVENUE WILL TOTAL $250 ACM and A-TDMA: Overcomes rain fade and solar outages Group Quality of Service: Prioritizes network applications and maintains operational integrity $200 $150 $658 MILLION $100 $50 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 YEARS CANADA $12M UNITED STATES $145M LATIN AMERICA MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA EUROPE ASIA PACIFIC $32M $.9M $47M $290M Native IP System: Integrates seamlessly with other smart grid communications technologies
