Benefits of using IP-based networks include the maturity of a large number of IP standards, the availability of tools and applications that can be applied to Smart Grid environments, and the widespread use of IP technologies in both private and public networks. In addition, IP technologies serve as a bridge between applications and the underlying communication media. They allow applications to be developed independent of both the communication infrastructure and the various communication technologies to be used, whether they be wired or wireless.
