Wi-Fi® for the Smart Grid: Mature, Interoperable, Secure Technology for Advanced Smart Energy Management Communications (2010)
Smart Grid solutions are being driven by the desire for more efficient energy usage worldwide. The Smart Grid communications network will be a heterogeneous network based on many different standards. Wi-Fi® technology will certainly be part of any future Smart Grid.
Wi-Fi is mature, proven technology that implements many of the Smart Grid application scenarios today. Wi-Fi networks can be deployed to meet the Smart Grid requirements for robustness, manageability, performance and security. Wi-Fi is cost effective, scales to cover large geographies and many endpoints, and requires no new cabling. Moreover, Wi-Fi technology has an ongoing roadmap of innovation and established mechanisms for collaboration (via the Wi-Fi Alliance® and IEEE) to meet the evolving needs of Smart Grid applications well into the future.
