Advances within the UTMC arena – the introduction of the UG405 UTMC protocol and SCOOT MC3 in particular – enable SCOOT to be more tolerant of time delays in communications between the UTC software and connected Outstation Transmission Units. This has increased the number of alternative communication options available to users, including 3G wireless networks, that can offer a number of key benefits, including reduced communication costs.
Customers should be aware that BT have recently confirmed plans to withdraw its retail TDM services by the end of March 2018, so it is now becoming increasingly important to consider alternative communications options and develop a longer term transition plan. Siemens can help you do this.
With 3G wireless networks, there is no need to wait for physical communications links to be installed, particularly if alternative solutions require expensive civil and ducting works. Depending on the network, running costs can be significantly lower than existing leased lines. The 3G option is only available on Gemini2 and is provided by the use of an approved 3G router and antenna kit.
Key features of the Siemens UTMC OTU 3G solution include:
The UTMC OTU is supported by an instation component, termed the Outstation Support Server (OSS), which provides enhanced management of OTU firmware and configuration data.
