Industrial VPN Gateway: 5G Accelerates Smart Grid Development

The smart grid is a complex system of engineering. Green, smart and easy-to-use solutions must improve the monitoring and processing of grid status, improve the protection and control of the grid, and respond to the user’s demand. , which requires the continuous introduction of new digital technologies. Power grid management and operation can be made more efficient, safe, and clean with the advent of 5G Industrial VPN Gateways.

The current smart grid development has actually been greatly developed thanks to the support of AI and the Internet of Things, but there are still some problems with wireless access to the grid. Realize the precise control of loads at all levels of the client to meet the needs of the new grid structure with UHV as the backbone and the coordinated development of grids at all levels; at the same time, support the monitoring and monitoring of key links in grids at all levels, and introduce visualization, real-time The new operation mode realizes the user’s two-way interaction and fine power consumption management.

With the popularization of 5G and the construction and application of base stations, Industrial VPN Gateway relies on new features such as ultra-high bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and ultra-large-scale access of 5G technology to better meet the above needs and accelerate the development of smart grids. Ensure power grid business security, reliability, flexibility, etc., provide differentiated service guarantees, and enhance the independent controllability of power grid businesses.

5G edge computing gateway

Take Alotcer 5G Industrial VPN Gateway AR7091 as an example. It is an industrial IoT gateway developed based on 5G/4G/3G/2G, WIFI, virtual private networks, and other technologies. In addition to an industrial-grade 32-bit communication processor, industrial-grade wireless module, and embedded operating system, this product supports 1 Gigabit Ethernet WAN, 4 Gigabit Ethernet LANs, and 1 RS232/RS485 (optional) interface and 2.4G/5.8G WIFI interface, allowing connections of serial devices, Ethernet devices, and WIFI devices at the same time, which meets the requirements of industrial field communication. It has the following product features:

1. 5G/4G, Gigabit Ethernet port, 2.4/5G dual-band WIFI
2. Support MQTT protocol and mainstream IoT platform
3. Meet the conversion between industrial control OPCUA protocol and Modbus protocol
4. Powerful VPN networking functions, PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, IPSEC, etc.
5. Wired + dual-mode 5G + VRRP three-level link hot backup, financial-grade communication link redundancy design
6. Provide strong edge computing power, measured to meet the application scenarios of -40℃-80℃

With the continuous development of 5G technology and smart grid, in future applications, Industrial IoT Gateway may also be able to further improve the intelligent operation and maintenance capabilities of power systems through the joint use of robots and other smart devices.
