Project Summary:

According to [1], "nDanville is the broadband fiber network provided by the City of Danville Utilities Department. nDanville network became operational in late 2007, and was the first municipal open access, open services network in the United States." nDanville fiber network is also used to support the Utilities Department Smart Grid effort to provide resilient and reliable electric power to businesses and residents. Smart Grid features supported by the nDanville fiber network include its state-of-the-art Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), as well as sophisticated substation and power monitoring networks. In Danville, every substation is monitored using fiber connections, and equipped with a highly sophisticated outage management system that enables the grid operators to quickly diagnose and solve power issues.
