Salt River Project (SRP), an Arizona public power utility and water supplier, will modernize its backbone network with Ciena Corp.'s 6500 converged packet optical platform to help improve network resiliency, reduce costs and increase capacity.

According to the network specialist, the upgrade will enable the utility to support the demand for high-bandwidth services driven by supervisory control and data acquisition, grid automation and storage traffic.

In addition, Ciena says the network will be able to support more dynamic applications, such as smart meters and substation automation, to enable real-time information monitoring and control and help provide increased electric system reliability, improved power quality and faster service restoration capabilities.
