Impact of 5G on Energy Utilities

Ultrareliable and low-latency communication (URLLC) and massive machine type communication (mMTC) capabilities of 5G wireless technology transform operations of energy utility enterprises. From routine inspection of transmission and distribution lines using drones to decentralized intelligence and control systems for substations, 5G supports smart grid initiatives to deliver next-generation customer service.

5G connectivity is a catalyst for an advanced digital ecosystem to support renewable sources of energy, safeguard employees, and reduce the cost of asset maintenance. 5G-enabled advanced metering infrastructure empowers utility enterprises to apply real-time data analytics for effective outage management.
