This paper investigates new applications in transmission system operation, protection and maintenance and discusses concerns in designing communication infrastructure to implement these applications. Requirements from such applications are highlighted by study of use cases. Standards associated with data format, communication protocols and cyber security are then identified. A generic communication infrastructure and problems in selection of communication technologies for the new applications are addressed at last.
