Faced with the significant challenges of interoperability, the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP), a member-driven organization comprised of stakeholders from throughout the power and communications industries, continues to tackle the issues presented by the development of the Smart Grid over diverse geographic areas, operating environments and population densities.
The Smart Grid represents an evolution from a 100-plus-year-old electrical system to what some describe as a modern technological wonder. Proponents say that once in place, the Smart Grid will provide unprecedented communication, flexibility, efficiency and security for electrical power.
Wireless operators are facing a daunting challenge in continuing to satisfy the ever growing data demands of their users. Bandwidth optimization has become the highest priority to network owners.
As one of the biggest concerns to optimal network efficiency, PIM (Passive Intermodulation) management warrants a considerable amount of attention.
