  • SUBNET’s system intelligence products, PowerSYSTEM Server and PowerSYSTEM Center, are designed to be deployed at a centralized location on the utility enterprise. These two SYSTEM intelligence solutions help convert a power system full of smart substations into a Smart Power Grid. System intelligence unifies the source of real-time information to any utility business
    system that requires it, enabling timely, informed and secure operation of the entire power system.
    These SUBNET PowerSYSTEM Intelligence solutions are also easily upgraded, and evolve with technological change as needed.
    Benefits of PowerSYSTEM Server
    * PowerSYSTEM Server’s large, advanced library of SCADA protocol drivers and integrated security capabilities allows utilities to have unparalleled real-time visibility of their entire transmission and distribution system.
    * It provides a cost effective solution to upgrade your existing SCADA Front End Communication process, while helping utilities meet their Smart Grid goals and objectives, and today’s security and reliability regulatory requirements.
    * PowerSYSTEM Server can also be used as a non-SCADA FEP to collect and interface previously stranded IED data directly with utility data historians and asset management systems, independent of and without burdening a utility’s SCADA system.
    * Multi-function FEP solution that performs data concentration, protocol translation, centralized event file collection and enterprise data integration.
    * PowerSYSTEM Server unifies the centralized real-time SCADA and non-SCADA data collection for your entire grid. It is able to serve this real-time information to a variety of utility business systems including SCADA systems, data historians, asset management systems, etc.
    * High-availability, redundant PowerSYSTEM Server solutions provide the reliability you need for these critical applications.
    * Avoid the limitations of many SCADA vendor-specific FEPs with PowerSYSTEM Server’s true multi-vendor communication capabilities.
    * PowerSYSTEM Server enables utilities to get more out of their existing IED investments by helping to deliver all the important data they contain directly to the people that need it, versus having them go to the substation to get the data.
