SCANA Services

A utility that's powering the future

“SCANA has a number of two-way radio systems that range from low to high band, digital to analog, and trunked to individual channels. For years, interoperability was just not practical for SCANA. Instant Connect has allowed us to obtain interoperability across regions and systems, including links to our IP telephone networks. Instant Connect has opened our future to a wide spectrum of options.”

Oscie Brown – General Manager, SCANA Services

Challenge

Needed to integrate over 50 different radio channels across a three-state region (Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina); to modernize existing systems with flexible IP Dispatch to improve coordination and management with the field workforce; and to meet regulation banning cell phone in commercial truck fleet.

Solution

SCANA now has a standards-based centralized, flexible, converged architecture leveraging Instant Connect, Cisco Land Mobile Radio gateways, and ISR G2 routers.
