Capacity Planning for Utilities White Paper

This paper describes capacity drivers for next generation utility networks and delves into detail about how to design these networks to meet the capacity need without sacrificing reliability or increasing cost. In the first part of this white paper, we will examine each of these services and its capacity contributions and then in the second part, explore how the combination of these services affect the network backhaul design. Separately we will do an analysis of a typical network and how to dimension the network capacity to be able to adequately handle these services and some factor of future growth.
