Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, will share the latest in substation automation at the DistribuTECH Conference & Exhibition in San Antonio from Jan. 28-30. Belden’s power transmission and distribution, smart grid, and security experts will be on hand to offer practical advice and solutions for substation automation and control systems.
“For years, the utility industry didn’t need to automate. Now, the majority need help understanding substation automation, as well as smart grid design and deployment,” said Mike Miclot, vice president of marketing at Belden. “At events like DistribuTECH, we can assist companies with what to do next—whether they have no automation in place and are just getting started, or they’re more advanced and looking to build a substation of the future.”
For companies with a legacy system in place, Belden security expert Eric Byres will co-present a portion of the event’s Substation Integration and Automation track titled “Legacy System Migration Best Practices: A Checklist for Designing and Deploying a Secure Industrial Ethernet Communications System.” The presentation will take place on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and Byres will be joined by communications infrastructure expert Mike Trayler, a development manager with Raymar Telenetics.
In addition to the presentation, Belden and its team of specialists will be available for consultations and product demonstrations at booth 3055. The booth will feature:
- A complete range of substation communications infrastructure products—from copper and fiber cabling and GarrettCom and Hirschmann routers and switches, to wireless access points and network management software.
- Security capabilities for both old and new automation systems, including the new EAGLE One industrial security router, Belden’s latest global product rollout. This versatile device expands Belden’s existing EAGLE platform, providing all-around network protection and featuring ruggedized enhancements for the energy industry.
- Redundancy solutions that meet the latest IEC 62439 standard, including high-availability seamless redundancy (HSR) and parallel redundancy protocol (PRP).
At DistribuTECH, the utility industry’s leading transmission and distribution event, Belden will help attendees take a step back to assess what they have and where they’re at. With this approach, companies can determine the practical next steps to get them where they need to go. And, as the need for interoperability continues to grow, power transmission and distribution managers will see an increased need to connect their disparate electrical parts and systems into the smart grid.
“Our goal is to help customers achieve the maximum amount of uptime and reliability. We help them think through substation communications and put the correct strategies in place, as well as ensure they’re using the proper, ruggedized products,” said Tim Wallaert, director of vertical marketing at Belden. “For us, it’s about meeting companies where they are today, whether they’re running terminal servers with media converters or implementing the latest IEC 61850 communications systems. We’re planning for, and guiding, the future of energy communications infrastructure.”

While Docker continues to be the darling of startups, enterprises and IT innovators around the world, networking continues to be a real mess. Indeed, managing the interaction between Docker containers and networks has always been fraught with complications. Without automation in networking, the vision of running Docker at scale and letting IT run the same apps unchanged on the laptop and in the data center or for any cloud cannot be realized.
