In migrating to a substation network of the future, three aspects must be considered: 1) reliable IED to-IP connectivity, whether serial or Ethernet, 2) assured bandwidth to the IP infrastructure and 3) a network security plan that will protect both serial and Ethernet IP intelligent end devices. As always, these hybrid solutions must also accommodate the tight real-time latency requirements always present in power utility communications.
In order to preserve the legacy equipment investment, options including adding more computers to act as small SCADA masters OR integrating terminal servers to perform the serial-to-Ethernet translation will need to be examined.
