Ensuring SCADA Network Continuity with Routing and Traffic Analytics
SCADA is the life blood of any utility, providing control of generation and distribution of power or other resources, plus insight into any parameters configured into the utility grid itself. Large SCADA systems can gather tens of thousands of measurements per second from RTUs dispersed throughout a utility’s territory. To succeed in utility environments where large, complex IP networks create variability in how application traffic is delivered, network managers need to look beyond traditional network management tools and understand their networks’ control plane operations. This whitepaper will cover route analytics technology, used by many national and regional electrical power utilities, is the answer to understanding the logical operation of IP networks. With real-time routing telemetry overlaid with traffic flow data, back-in-time forensics, and what-if modeling capabilities, utility network managers gain the visibility they need to ensure that SCADA applications operate with the highest-possible network service continuity.
