Bolivian Electricity Company deploys RAD solution for data and telephony integration

RAD Data Communications Ltd : 03 October, 2004  (Company News)
The Bolivian Power Company (COBEE, the Spanish acronym for Compa
The deployment resulted from COBEE’s need to ensure transmission and control of the PLC and SCADA control systems networks, which are indispensable for electrical power generation and transport networks, while enabling value added services such as subsidized public telephony and data.

Connects More Than 15 Hydroelectric Generating SitesCOBEE’s network is based on a drop-and-insert system that covers the company’s fifteen-plus hydroelectric generation sites. It brings telemetry transport and control to energy systems, data access connectivity to Ethernet networks and public telephony services to areas of the country where they have been unavailable until now. An added benefit of this solution is that it enables technical and humanitarian assistance to be extended to rural communities and localities that are difficult to access geographically.

In addition, the Ethernet switches connected to the Optimux-XLE1 optical multiplexers concentrate video surveillance applications from the power generating stations. These are transported over the fiber network in tandem with other applications, which provides an additional level of security in preventing network failure and minimizing downtime.

Functions Flawlessly in Harsh Climactic ConditionsDespite the region’s harsh climatic conditions and the severe electromagnetic radiation that affect the region in which the RAD equipment was installed and is now operating, the Optimux units coexist in a relatively aggressive environment, successfully meet all required operational standards and interact fully with adjacent application systems.

“We’re always proud to hear that RAD technology responds to the diverse requirements and needs of our end users, but in this specific case, the benefits also resonate throughout the society as a whole,” stated Eduardo Maradei, General Manager of RAD América Latina. “With this solution, therefore, RAD is demonstrating its unwavering commitment to an evolution in technological innovations that are designed to improve client productivity while simultaneously promoting technology as a tool for social development,” Maradei added.

RAD’s local partner was Procom, its authorized distributor in Bolivia and the project’s integrator.
