State grid has signed a deal with China telecom to push the smart grid.
On July 2, state grid corporation and China telecom group company in Beijing signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement, the two sides will cooperate in the field of power grid and communication, to build the electric power fiber to the home project as the focus, cooperation to promote construction of strong smart grid. According to the agreement signed by the two sides, the two sides will realize resource complementarity in the major infrastructure areas and jointly promote the construction of optical fiber to households. At the same time, we will jointly promote the cooperation of market resources and carry out integrated information services such as optical fiber access, broadband service, integrated business and industrial application.

"The smart grid is inseparable from the support of informationization." In the national grid of strong smart grid with China telecom about the cooperative project signing ceremony, deputy general manager of China telecom, said zhang chenshuang will be on fixed network, mobile, China telecom integration advantages of the Internet, to provide comprehensive information services to the national electricity grid, ranging from basic communication circuit to the application of the electric power industry, and effective communication applications such as business, collaborative office, fusion to help build a strong national power grid a smart grid. So what is the business opportunity for telecom operators? How should the telecommunication industry combine the information service capability with the information demand of the smart grid to open up a brand new blue sea market? , experts say, by the state grid and the co-operation of China telecom, telecom operators are expected to deeper involvement in communication and application of the smart grid market, develop the Internet of things of great business opportunities and cooperation.

Informatization is the core characteristic of smart grid.
In the interview with relevant experts in the power industry, we learned that the most basic characteristics of smart grid are informatization, automation and interaction, which is more information oriented. In the smart grid dispatch, management, monitoring, monitoring each link, informationization has great use.

Since 2006, the state grid corporation is put forward in the implementation of "SG186 project" in the system planning, namely: build "vertical and horizontal integration" "the integration of enterprise information integration platform, realize the company information flow and data sharing; To build eight business applications that adapt to the management needs of the company and improve the management ability of the company's various businesses; We will establish a sound and effective six information security system to promote the healthy, rapid and sustainable development of informationization. Each of these goals clearly defines informatization as the core. At present, the SG186 information system construction project has achieved stage results. On this basis, on June 15, 2009, state grid corporation set up the smart grid department, which marked the stage of the construction of smart grid.

About smart grid, the demand for information, the director of the national power grid a smart grid Wang Yimin of informationization is the implementation of a strong smart grid, the basic features of the smart grid is informatization, automation, interaction in technology, management reflect collectivization, intensive, the lean, standardization, so as to realize safe, reliable, high quality, clean, efficient, interactive power supply. Experts pointed out that new emphasis on now put forward the concept of strong smart grid, in addition to pay more attention to safe and reliable, but also focus on strengthening the depth and breadth of information technology application, such as remote image monitoring to improve clarity, information acquisition should further expand the scale, etc., all these put forward higher requirement of network bandwidth performance. To this end, we need to learn from the operation experience and advantageous resources of the communication network, and actively study advanced information and communication technologies such as 3G and 4G to meet the growing demand for power information. It is understood that the state grid is scheduled to be completed in 2020 in the national basic to high voltage network backbone network frame, all levels of power grid, the coordinated development, supported by the information platform of communication, information, automation, interaction characteristics of modern power grid, there are actually contains telecommunication enterprises to participate in the opportunity.

The Internet of things is the application of smart grid.
Reporter in the interview of China electric power research institute of information and communication, director of the institute of Mr Chirac, specially to prove the hype over the previous "national grid plan of the Internet of things". Previous media reports said the state grid's intentions were not entirely "three meshes", but the future of the Internet of things and the "perception China" plan. Chen said that the so-called national grid's Internet of things and the "perceived China" plan are largely reflected in the "interactive" features of the smart grid. From this point of view, the development trend of smart grid is indeed towards the direction of the Internet of things and sensor network. In this area, the national power grid due to the limitations of its own resources, more is to act as the role of electric power optical fiber access, a lot of system software and application mode, must need to cooperate with telecom operating companies, software companies, etc.

In Mr Chirac for smart grid "interactive" the description of the characteristics, the reporter sees, through the grid company and the client installation with sensing function of intelligent terminal, respectively, in the case of denominated in different time periods, the user can more quickly and timely understanding of their own power and real-time prices, so as to adjust their state of electricity, and even can sell surplus electricity to other users or grid companies. On the other hand, the grid company can also through real-time electricity information collection, statistics and analysis area, adjust prices, to form effective interaction with customers, can avoid unnecessary waste of resources, interactive, efficient, economic, safe and reliable electricity. This is a typical Internet of things application. State grid information communication co., LTD., deputy chief engineer of Li Xiangzhen also stressed that the sensor network as the foundation of the smart grid peripheral information perception indispensable link, in the power system has broad application space.

Internet of things as the application of the smart grid visible gripper, already penetrates into the access of power generation, substation of production management, safety evaluation and supervision, distribution automation, electricity acquisition and marketing and so on, each link is started using the Internet of things technology. The application of "wireless meter reading", which includes many telecom enterprises, is also an application of Internet of things. For the development of the iot industry and even the entire information and communication industry, the intelligent power grid will generate a strong driving force and will have a profound impact on the Internet of things in other industries.

Electric power fiber enters the household will move the manufacturing market.
Smart grid is the iot characteristics, can realize remote acquisition meter, water meter, gas meter, such as information, and analysis of electricity, so as to realize the integrated configuration of the energy, information and resources sharing, and greatly promote the energy conservation and emissions reduction. And the implementation of this, with the state grid is piloted to promote the electricity fiber into the household is inseparable. The state grid plans to promote the introduction of electric fiber in 14 to 18 provinces nationwide this year, and requires all new communities in the country to realize optical fiber entry. Is the core content of the project, the use of optical fiber composite low voltage cables with EPON (Ethernet passive optical network) based technology to realize optical fiber door, carrying the residents of the information network user electricity information collection business. This opens the door to a huge market for telecoms manufacturing.

On June 25th the names of a series of telecoms network providers appeared alongside the state grid. CLP to fly to China on this day, Beijing communications co., LTD. (CLP) to fly to China and jiangsu optical cable co., LTD., shenyang cable industry co., LTD and zhongtian technology group signed a about optical fiber composite low voltage cables (OPLC) strategic cooperation agreement. The signing of the above agreement signals that the national grid's optical fiber entry plan has reached the overall supply stage. It is understood that the state grid's storage and testing of power fiber into household technology began half a year ago. Since the end of last year, the state grid has started testing the power fiber entry system, and since June, pilot projects have been carried out in some provinces. As early as June 4 and June 10, henan and chongqing have respectively started the power fiber entry project. On June 13, shenyang's first application of "smart grid" optical fiber into the pilot residential district started construction. The state grid plans to conduct pilot projects in 20 cities of 14 provincial-level companies this year, covering about 47,000 users.

At present, the China electric power research institute is leading the development of the relevant technical standard test for power optical fiber, and the relevant standards will be issued within the year. At that time, the comprehensive development of the electric fiber into the household project will undoubtedly lead to a new wave of growth in the communication industry.
