S&C Electric Co. has announced the successful deployment of an IntelliTeam Communication Network Management System (CNMS) at ENMAX Power Corp., one of the largest power distributors in Alberta, Canada.

ENMAX, which operates a large distribution automation system in Calgary, relies on mesh radio communications to ensure proper performance of the automation system. With over 500 S&C SpeedNet radios deployed on the utility's power system, ENMAX sought a dependable network management solution to better manage and monitor these radios.

According to S&C, IntelliTeam CNMS is making it easier and more cost-effective for ENMAX to detect and proactively manage issues that could impact communication system performance, such as impending performance issues with older backup batteries.

"Reliable communication systems are an important ingredient of our distribution automation system, for which response speeds are critical," says ENMAX’s Graeme Cowie. “IntelliTeam CNMS complements the utility's advanced, automated smart grid, which already uses S&C's IntelliTeam II Automatic Restoration System, S&C automated overhead and underground switches and IntelliRupter Pulseclosers.”
