The Grid's Digital Transformation

Burns & McDonnell and Cisco are teaming up to deliver a 2-day utility network training that will cover substation and power systems basics, industrial network design and operations within the substation environment, as well as techniques and architectures to secure your power operational network.

This in-person training provides an opportunity for both classroom and hands-on laboratory learning. 

We'll take you through three key topics that will revolutionize power systems implementation:

  • IP Networking - Designing the Future: 
  • Discover the secrets behind cutting-edge substation network design principles. From the evolution of WAN designs to the power-packed L3 protocols of IP, MPLS, and SR, witness the migration from the public realm to the limitless possibilities of private networks. Uncover the crucial role of control centers and the devices that make substations pulse with energy.
  • Igniting Operations with Innovation: 
  • Be at the forefront of operational excellence by tackling the challenges of legacy equipment updates, the thrilling dance between public and private wireless technologies, and the ever-changing landscape of substations. Feel the urgency of clocking and timing, experience the power of loop protection, and embrace the insatiable hunger for network bandwidth. Dive into the depths of remote access, explore the intricate network flows, and unlock the potential of cloud technology.
  • Fortify and Defend - The Security Showdown: 
  • Be prepared for the latest best practices in securing IP networks. Unveil the enigma of compliance considerations like NERC CIP, and learn to align your defenses with the formidable NERC and NIST standards. Discover the hidden vulnerabilities without robust security measures and experience the thrill of encryption, segmentation, and impenetrable physical fortifications. Safeguard operations against the relentless threats, secure remote access, and triumph over the complexities of supply chain security.

Join us for an electrifying journey as we dive into the heart of IP networks for utility substations. Prepare to be inspired, challenged, and transformed as you uncover the secrets that will reshape the power systems landscape.
