Teleprotection over IP/MPLS

Teleprotection over IP/MPLS


EESA is pleased to present Tony Odri of Energy Queensland who will talk about Teleprotection over Internet Protocol / Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS). IP/MPLS is a packet based telecommunications technology that is extensively used in enterprise and telecommunications service provider networks. As support for predecessor systems continue to diminish, IP/MPLS penetration in utility networks for both enterprise and operational purposes continues to grow.

MPLS is a technology that enables the separation of services into virtual private networks and the carriage of many different service types, including legacy service types used for Teleprotection signalling.

The talk will cover:

  • Introduction to IP/MPLS and predecessor telecommunications.
  • Telecommunications performance requirements of Teleprotection Relays
  • Performance characteristic of IP/MPLS and predecessor telecommunications
  • IP/MPLS benefits and challenges
