What's Smart About Smart Power? Modernizing the Power Grid and HFC Networks: Power Outage Notifications and Advanced Sensing (2021)

By Dr. Robert F. Cruickshank, III, Cable Television Laboratories, Inc.

This paper calls the cable broadband industry to action to investigate and capitalize on the increasingly important intersections between grid/utility power and cable network power. Managing the intersections of power and communications across the landscape and throughout our respective infrastructures—from communities to forests—is fundamental to improving network reliability and cost-effective operations. Additionally, working with organizations responsible for emergency response, corporate security, situational awareness, public safety, and business resilience is fundamental to preserving our way of life and preventing catastrophic loss of life and property.
