Delivery reliability with modern network
The telecommunications network needs to be overhauled because of the energy transition, This transition has led to an increase in the number of energy generators, which generate two-way traffic and a lot of activity, and this calls for a more intelligent electricity grid (smart grid). The control of that electricity network is essential for the delivery reliability of electricity. This in turn requires a modern, reliable and proprietary telecommunications network, over which Stedin’s data traffic can pass safely.
Stedin has opted for the construction of a completely new fibre optic network. The fibre optic cables connect the large electricity stations in Stedin’s entire catchment area. VolkerWessels Telecom is contributing to the expansion and modernisation of the network. It will ultimately connect over 300 locations, which are among Stedin’s most critical junctions. The scope and complexity of this renewal is critical. It’s more than replacing copper by fibre optics and reducing the number of technologies in that network. The stations remain in operation during the work, which calls for cooperation and complex planning.
