Key to the success of any smart grid application is reliable visibility to the grid components.  A purpose built network is the foundation for enabling real time visibility for applications like distributed generation.  Different smart grid applications can have varying network requirements, making it challenging to build a common field area network.  Understanding the risks and benefits of different technology choices is important to building the most optimal field area network.  Moreover, seamless integration between different network layers is essential to achieving end-to-end network performance objectives.
