Hosting Options for a PLTE Network

Hosting Options for a PLTE Network

Utilities, like several other industry verticals, need to decide whether to host the network On-Premise or remote. They also need to decide whether to provide the network functionality themselves or contract the build/operate out to external vendors that provide cloud/ hosting services. There is no one solution that fits every situation. The utility must determine their requirements and priorities. Once those are crafted, only then can they make an informed decision on the architecture that works best for their environment. The attributes presented here are designed to provide “food-for-thought” and guidance towards the decision process.

The paper focuses on:

  • Network Architecture Overview
  • Attribute Review by Architecture
  • On-Premise Utility Hosted
  • On-Premise Vendor Hosted
  • Off-Premise Vendor or Utility Hosted
