5G for Local Electric Grids (LEG)


Idea is to use 5G for the whole spectrum of media and protocols for the Industry of LEG Instead of connecting modules like solar panel or battery controller using ZigBee or Wi-Fi to some HUB, there can be integrated modem in each module for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) connection over the Internet, based on 5G technology.

This is the most easiest and natural way that OSS can «Infer information about customer equipment 'behind the meter'».

Usage of 5G opens new horizons for implementation of this idea into the real life. In fact, due to properties of 5G network we have the following benefits:

  • Reduced over-the-air latency (10ms -> 1ms) allowing to implement real-time management, including sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (based on Server/Cloud) prevention of accidents. Meantime, local controller in each module can be more simple and cheap then.
  • More simultaneous connections (100,000/km2 -> 1 million/km2) allowing to control multiple devices within one LEG over same 5G network. These devices are various counters, engines, relays for different area of control inside the LEG. Along with that, all management related elements (IoT Server, LEG controller) can be done also with connection over 5G, as we have enough simultaneous connections.
  • User experience data rate (10~100Mbps -> 100Mbps~1Gbps) will allow to implement remote software update in each module of te LEG.


Finally, usage of 5G significally will reduce CAPEX and OPEX for the management of LEGs.

  • We do not need a zoo of media and different modems with different antennas.
  • We use common chipsets as in 5G smartphones and tablets.
  • We can hire as Support general telecom engineers - more flexibility and convenience for business.


In fact, 5G itself will become a commodity quite soon and what really worth is quality of service and software. If someone will select zoo of technologies for connected car solution, then this one will face all the problems of small market of expensive dedicated hardware.


Supporting hardware/software: IoT.

Solution type: Service, meaning that there have to be developed the whole system, including software and separate devices.

  • Devices, however to be developed by present 3rd party companies, which deal with LEG management, but with usage of 5G chipsets.
  • Regarding the software, along with creation or modification of dedicated OSS/BSS server software, significant development of on-site LEG software has to be done. At least testing of all-in-one 5G connection with different latency and bitrate for different content - has to be done.



Segment: B2B, considering that the solution (software, patents and hardware specifications) will be sold or provided in lease to eletricity related companies (for example - TESLA) or to national electricity companies. As alternative owner of the solution can outsource solar panels and batterry production and became B2C player itself.

Potential revenue generation: Depending on the selected business model (sell to, lease to or become B2C) solution, owner can have completely different revenues. However, gross estimation of the business is at least reaching the capitalization of tens of billions (aiming the capitalization of TESLA).
