20/20 Hindsight: Transitioning from PLC Pioneer to Next-Gen AMI

PRESENTATION: Besch

As AMI first adopters, PLC pioneers endured many early difficulties but were also rewarded with unprecedented operational efficiencies. However it’s becoming increasingly difficult for legacy PLC systems to keep up with today’s increased data requirements. Join Jefferson Energy, Harrison REMC and Jasper County REMC as they explore PLC to radio-frequency AMI best practices, pitfalls to avoid, and insider tips for making deployment uneventful. The session will be invaluable to anyone considering the switch and how to navigate it smoothly.
