River Project (SRP), an Arizona public power utility and water
supplier, will modernize its backbone network with Ciena®
Corporation's (NYSE: CIEN) converged
packet optical platform to improve network resiliency, reduce costs, and
increase capacity. This upgrade will enable SRP to support the surging
demand for high-bandwidth services driven by supervisory control and
data acquisition (SCADA),
grid automation and storage traffic. In addition, SRP's network will be
able to support more dynamic applications, such as smart meters and
substation automation, to enable real-time information monitoring and
control, and provide increased electric-system reliability, improved
power quality and faster service restoration capabilities.
