Intelligent networks

Digitizing what matters 

Telecommunications infrastructure provides the backbone of the intelligent networks that utilities use to manage the production, transmission and distribution of electricity.  Our experienced team works with utilities of all sizes to provide tailored solutions that are engineered to efficiently leverage the latest telecommunications technology available.  

Over the past 45 years, we have been enabling power utilities to bridge the gap between technology and physical infrastructure. In keeping pace with the rapidly changing world of digitalization, we gained the required skillsets to design networks and integrate technological platforms. Our project experience includes major network transformations for several utilities across North America. 

Network modernization

Telecommunications infrastructure is the foundation on which emerging smart grid technologies are deployed. Modern networks are self-healing, highly redundant, scalable and allow for the seamless integration of utilities’ advanced meters and other smart devices. 

Our network modernization solutions address digital era challenges including:

  • Security through seamless network encryption
  • Integration of micro grids and distributed energy resources 
  • Scalability to support future growth
  • Resilience
  • High speed
  • Low communications latency
  • Low operating cost
  • User mobility

Our telecommunications services

We offer single-source, cost-effective, innovative and secure network solutions.  Our services include new builds, technology upgrades, integrations and commissioning, offering both wireless and wireline expertise. We are vendor-independent and specialize in deploying a full array of technological systems into a unified fit-for-purpose solution.
