Managing Network Elements at Wind Farms via 3G-4G Modem

Most wind farms include a surprising assortment of network devices that are used to control turbine positioning, track wind speed and direction and ensure security at the remote site. When network problems at a wind farm make normal network communication impossible, an out-of-band management solution is required to enable administrators to restore communication without the delays, hassle and expense of a physical service call to the remote wind farm. Given the remote nature of most wind farms, access via 3G/4G modem is often the only viable option for out-of-band communication with network elements in wind farm applications.
