Utilities are at a crossroads in addressing challenges to architect communication networks that can support a robust blend of smart grid applications while simultaneously meeting stringent financial and regulatory objectives. This paper discusses challenges in understanding the communication network choices when supporting applications such as Distribution Automation, Advanced Metering, Automated Demand Response and Electric Vehicle Charging. We also introduce the unique capabilities of a tool designed to evaluate different communications technology choices under specific application, network, topology, and geographical constraints.
