SMi are delighted to announce their inaugural Telecoms for Smart Grids conference which will take place on the 21st & 22nd September 2011 in London.

Public or private networks? Join one of the hottest debates in the Smart Grid industry as we bring European and International communications and utility specialists together to determine what communication infrastructure will play the biggest role in the deployment of the future Smart Grid.
Heated discussion continues in industry circles stating that Fixed and Wireless Public Network operators are ideally positioned to grab a majority stake in market share as an existing infrastructure, rather than Utilities having to invest and building private networks.

Don't miss this opportunity to take part, contribute, and understand future communication priorities in this rapidly changing landscape, as we look at key issues such as: Availability, Reliability, Survivability, Coverage, Latency, Security and Control.
