Solution

Remote control and automation of the electricity network play a significant role in the core business of Smart Grid deployments. The use of communications is therefore widely used as a guarantee of reliability, performance and security in the development of complex, sophisticated Smart Grid networks.

Teldat propose a compatible solution with both traditional and innovative Smart Grid architectures. Teldat’s Regesta family are future-proof devices incorporating the newest technologies and constantly evolving to adapt to all kinds of scenarios, with the aim of simplifying management and controlling large-scale Automation deployments.

Security

Guaranteed reliable communications regardless the conditions

 

Most remote-control solutions are in unattended locations, making security measures a critical issue for Electricity companies. For this reason, Teldat’s Smart Grid solution incorporates a range of intrusion prevention mechanisms, such as ACLs, MAC filtering, port filtering and firewalls.

To ensure that communications are protected and provide constant contact with all the installed gateways, the Regesta family devices are equipped with the latest in security software (DMVPNs, AAA and certificates). And since information can have different priority levels, Regesta gateways also rely on advanced networking protocols (such as VLANs, VRFs, QoS and Policy routing) to isolate different services and thus guarantee service isolation. On top of this, they include some security mechanisms (802.1X and IPSec) to provide an additional layer of security to critical applications, preventing unauthorized access to critical information.

Ruggedization

Designed and certified to operate in harsh environments

 

Gateways for automation processes must meet special hardware requirements to survive the harsh conditions (extreme temperatures, adverse weather, electric and electromagnetic immunity) present in unattended installations. Teldat has leveraged its communications know-how to provide an in-house hardware design optimized to the unique needs of electrical companies.

The Regesta family has been designed to comply with strict standards on safety and performance in electrical environments, with a view to meeting the demanding conditions of processing plant locations. Their specific hardware design supports a wide operating temperature range and meets all electrical requirements for use in unattended locations with electrical hazards. All Teldat Smart Grid products have undergone comprehensive testing to ensure the equipment is reliable in the event of accidents, failures and adverse environmental conditions typical in these kinds of Smart Grid substations and transformation centers.

Furthermore, Regesta family devices are flexible products ready to adapt to future developments and integrate new technologies, in order to stay at the forefront of technological innovations.

Reliability

Always connected, even in in worst-case scenarios: automatic failover and exhaustive hardware test

 

Real-time communications between processing plants and control centers should never be lost and high availability must be guaranteed for automation processes. Regesta family devices provide a range of options to ensure networks remain connected at all times. All devices have serial communications (RS232, RS485, IEC-101, ModBus, DNP3 and Serial over IP) for legacy RTUs. At the same time, they support multi-carrier operation (dual SIM) to provide fallback mechanisms and optimize service continuity. A number of other connection options are also available, including xDSL, SFTP or PLC.

In addition, these kinds of processes often require having multiple services sharing the same WAN even though the information does not have the same priority. Regesta family devices allow you to classify different services, ensuring that the corresponding quality levels continue to be provided for each one –through mechanisms like high priority QoS, traffic prioritization and VLANs –and making sure that important data is always transmitted.
