TEL AVIV -- The Bolivian Power Company (COBEE, the Spanishacronym for Compañía Boliviana de Energía Eléctrica) has integrated its SCADA, PLC, data information and telephony transport services by deploying Optimux-XLE1 optical multiplexers manufactured by RAD Data Communications.

The deployment resulted from COBEE’s need to ensure transmission and control of the PLC and SCADA control systems networks, which are indispensable for electrical power generation and transport networks, while enabling value added services such as subsidized public telephony and data.

COBEE’s network is based on a drop-and-insert system that covers the company’s fifteen-plus hydroelectric generation sites. It brings telemetry transport and control to energy systems, data access connectivity to Ethernet networks and public telephony services to areas of the country where they have been unavailable until now. An added benefit of this solution is that it enables technical and humanitarian assistance to be extended to rural communities and localities that are difficult to access geographically.

In addition, the Ethernet switches connected to the Optimux-XLE1 opticalmultiplexers concentrate video surveillance applications from the power generating stations. These are transported over the fiber network in tandem with other applications, which provides an additional level of security in preventing network failure and minimizing downtime.
