Hitachi Energy brings 5G connectivity to critical industry and utility operations

Hitachi Energy has launched its new TRO600 series wireless routers with 5G capacity, which are specifically designed to help industrial and utility customers achieve high reliability and resiliency in mission-critical operations.

With the integration of 5G technology, Hitachi Energy’s TRO600 series routers enable a scalable, flexible and secure hybrid wireless communication architecture. A hybrid network seamlessly combines the best of public and private cellular with a broadband mesh, all managed through a single network management system. This approach unifies communications to all devices, ensuring fast, secure and reliable connectivity for every operational need.

“5G delivers significant improvements in connectivity performance for the growing number of mobile, remote and outdoor applications and complex use cases in industry, transportation, smart cities and public safety,” said Chantal. Polsonetti, Vice President, Advisory Services at ARC Advisory Group. .

The integration of 5G connectivity in the TRO600 series ensures optimal efficiency for multiple customer use cases in smart cities, oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, and utility applications. The high throughput supported is expected to drive greater adoption of virtual and augmented reality and video applications to drive operational efficiency and optimize processes. At the same time, ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) enables greater digitization of operational infrastructure and scalability of critical control applications.

Why hybrid networks are important

Hitachi Energy’s hybrid connectivity solutions can provide a combination of interoperable technologies over a single communications network, enabling applications for edge devices, mobile devices and field networks, covering environments ranging from dense urban to the ultra-rural. A hybrid system can ensure seamless industrial communications even when specific connectivity options may be unavailable or impeded. In addition to the hybrid wireless architecture, Hitachi Energy’s TRO600 series provides a robust, mission-critical wired link through a selection of Gigabit Ethernet and fiber interfaces.

As the number of devices and applications requiring real-time connectivity increases exponentially, 5G offers unparalleled speed, security and reliability, enabling businesses to support this growth. It is expected to play a critical role in massively scaling Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and mission-critical applications for utilities and other critical industries, where reliable connectivity can increase worker safety, sustain application adoption, and provide superior operational functionality.
