Webinar Recording: Fiber and Modernization of the Electric Grid

In this webinar recording, originally hosted by Utilities Technology Council, Paul Thompson, AFL's Business Development Manager, explores today's emerging grid and how its drivers are necessitating the need for electric utilities to modernize the grid. Fiber is key to enabling grid modernization. To deploy an extensive fiber optic infrastructure with a density that will support a smart, resilient and modernized grid, electric utilities should build a SAFER™ network - one that is Sustainable, Accessible, Flexible, Expandable and Reliable. Building a fiber-deep network with these characteristics is crucial for ensuring a robust communication network that can support the changing needs and demands electric utilities continue to face.
