What's the best way to transport SCADA traffic?

Should we use T1 or Ethernet as our data-transport protocol? That's the question most power utilities struggle with when they're planning a data communications network to carry SCADA* traffic. 

Many utilities see T1 as the better security solution. But they also believe Ethernet is the more cost-effective solution.

Actually, you can use both.

4 requirements for your SCADA network

When it comes to transporting supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) traffic, power utilities must consider several factors before they choose the best data-transport protocol.

There's no one-size-fits-all approach. You have to first look at your own situation. What is your business model? What are your overall communications needs? Do you want a converged network or one dedicated to SCADA traffic?
