Shandong Electric Power is upgrading its access, aggregation, and core networks. The upgrade aims to increase network efficiency and service assurance for delay-sensitive utility communications traffic and applications, including supervisory control data, real-time grid monitoring, videoconferencing and surveillance, private line, and voice.

The network will support a variety of different traffic types, including Carrier Ethernet, MPLS-TP, PTN, Optical Transport Network (OTN), and WDM. The simplified and rapid provisioning that enhanced network management offers will reduce operational expenses, Coriant adds.
