Enhancing SCADA System in Solar Power Plants with Milesight 5G Industrial Cellular Router

enhancing scada system in solar power plants with milesight 5g industrial cellular router Background

The Middle East receives ample sunlight and has vast unpopulated desert landscapes optimal for solar-energy harvesting. With the impact of incentive policies for renewable energy, more and more solar power plants (SPPs) were put into operation in the Middle East, especially in Dubai and UAE. Usually, power plants require the installation of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for remote monitoring and control. However, these power plants are usually located in rural areas far where wiring internet facilities are limited. Hence, 5G is the right choice for power plants to provide high security, high speeds, and low latency network. What’s more, governments in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations have incorporated 5G advancement within their national economic plans. In this scenario, Milesight UR75 5G industrial cellular router is the  ideal network equipment to enhance SCADA systems in power plants.


Many devices of SCADA systems used in power plants need to be integrated into the network which has a high requirement for network devices. It requires: • Dual sim for failover • Reliable cellular connection • VPNs for secure communication • Connect a large number of field devices to the network
