Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, released its eLTE SmartGrid solution at Hannover MESSE 2017. The wireless smart grid solution is designed to accelerate the digital transformation of electric power companies.

The eLTE SmartGrid solution leverages 4.5G cellular wireless communication technology to deliver three benefits: fully connected electrical equipment and the ability to read a massive amount of grid data, data transmission with industrial-grade reliability and security, and measurable smart grid management. The solution will be mainly used in distribution automation (DA), advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), and preventive maintenance inspection on sub-stations, as well as online monitoring of grid facilities.

In DA scenarios, 4.5G wireless communication technology with high bandwidth, low latency, and multiple connections supports dedicated communication networks. The networks are designed to enable online operations and monitoring of all power distribution nodes and terminals, enable quick fault location and the adjustment of power distribution solutions, significantly improve the reliability and quality of power supply, and implement fully intelligent grid management. In AMI scenarios, 4.5G wireless communication technology is used to connect a huge number of terminals, such as smart meters, achieving a 100% success rate in automation and accuracy of meter reading. This leads to a major reduction in manual labor costs.

Edward Deng, President of Huawei's Wireless Solution, said, "Taking one step beyond 4G, Huawei's eLTE SmartGrid solution applies advanced 4.5G wireless communication technology in the electric power industry. The solution will bring about a paradigm shift in the way that power utilities work, and will vastly accelerate their digital transformation. Beyond public service sectors, like water, electric power, and gas, ports, airports, and factories will also witness major changes. Huawei plans to launch a series of solutions that meet the varied requirements of different companies in different industries. We will further work with global partners and customers to accelerate their digital transformation and to build a better connected world."

Huawei's eLTE SmartGrid solution has first been commercially deployed in China, and will be further rolled out in other regions around the globe, where it is designed to help electric power companies go digital in preparation for the Global Energy Internet.
