Building a Better Network
Who owns your network? Do you? Or does your DAS software provider? Would you accept that same relationship in your office building? Doubtful…
Let’s be real…networks are the most critical piece of your data infrastructure. They are an integrated system that works as your organization’s high speed digital highway and must be robust and reliable. Designed from the start to ensure connectivity uptime and data delivery, your network is only as good as the team that designed and installed it.
Those same characteristics should apply to your solar PV generation system data network. Poor network design, installation and terminations will result in data delivery failures. The inability to build in true redundancy, and use the power of subnets, VLANs, and managed switches bogs down the entire network and wastes the power of strong IT systems when you need them most.
Solar networks deserve to be built better, with reliability, resilience and redundancy included. Ask your current DAS/SCADA provider if they can deliver all that and more. If their answer is no, then contact the experts at Renewable Energy Integration Group to learn what a robust network look like and the benefits of building better data infrastructure into your PV projects. You’ll be glad you did!
