2 2 Agenda 3:30 – 3:40 – Welcome and Introductions 3:40 – 4:00 – Review scope and charter of SG Communications Task Force 4:00 – 4:30 – Review NIST PAP’s assigned to SG Communications 4:30 – 5:00 – Review AMI-NET scope and charter 5:00 – 5:15 – Review work completed to date 5:15 – 5:30 – Wrap up and Q&A

3 3 Review of the SG Communication Charter The UCAiug OpenSG Communications (UtiliComm) Working Group is constituted to operate under the OpenSG Subcommittee. The charter of the UtiliComm Working Group is a derivative of the OpenSG charter. The organization of OpenSG is depicted in Figure 1.

4 Review of the SG Communication Charter (Cont.) The UtiliComm Working Group plans to initially sponsor two task groups: the AMI Network task group and the Network Interop task group. Those task groups are chartered with the following: AMI Network task group – Requirements specification for layers 4 and below of the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) network model as it applies to the AMI network. Network Interop task group – Requirements specification for layers 4 and below of the OSI network model as it applies to the HAN and premise equipment in general.

5 Review of the SG Communication Charter (Cont.) Both task groups of the UtiliComm Working Group will work with the SG Systems, SG Security (UtiliSec) and the SG Conformance Working Group (when constituted) in support of their charters. The UtiliComm Working Groups may also cover application and security support topics such as: Efficient delivery of XML meta data between entities in the system Deployment of security policies within various layers of the OSI stack Service discovery services Other communications and support features as identified by the SG Systems and SG Security Working Groups.

6 Review of the SG Communication Charter (Cont.) In support of this goal, the Working Group will employ the AMI Network and Network Interop Task Groups to make recommendations and create technical requirements on communication related components. In particular, the Working Group will be responsible for defining how components defined in AMI Network and Network Interop provide internetworking services to hybrid systems employing combinations of physical layers. Targeted standards will cover the complete set of use cases envisioned in the OpenSG Market Requirements Document (MRD) and in the OpenHAN specification. Furthermore, it is acknowledged that all of the deployments targeted by OpenSG will contain subsystems and components that are targeted to communicate using the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Internet Protocol (IP) family of standards. The Working Group will also be responsible for defining how these IP sub-systems and components are incorporated into the system as a whole such that all relevant use-cases and market requirements are satisfied.

7 Review of the SG Communication Scope The activities of the UtilComm Working Group shall be limited in scope in order to support proper division of labour with respect to the other Working Groups and to provide boundaries for the task at hand. Specifically: The UtiliComm Working Group will create a Charter and Scope, based on this document and approved by the Working Group, for submission to OpenSG as a basis for work going forward. The UtiliComm Working Group will create, distribute and maintain a schedule and roadmap detailing the tasks and milestones that comprise the group's work, including all tasks undertaken by the AMI Network and Network Interop task groups; The scope of work shall be limited to the functioning of those networking stack layers that reside between the Application layer interface and the physical layer interface; Notwithstanding these restrictions the group will provide analysis regarding the overall compatibility of the components specified to operate in the context of a hybrid system. Further, the Working Group shall assist the Certification Task Group in their job in defining the test plans and protocol interchange conformance statements (PICs) to apply certification to the components in its charter.

8 Review of the SG Communication Scope (Cont.) The UtiliComm Working Group will accomplish its charter in the following manner: In conjunction with the SG Systems Working Group, analyzes the OpenSG Marketing Requirements Documents, Use Cases and OpenHAN Specification to derive detailed technical requirements on communication subsystems in the scope of AMI-Network and Network Interoperability Works with identified standards development organizations such as IETF, IEEE, IEC and W3C and vendor consortiums such as the ZigBee Alliance, HomePlug, OASIS and any other organization seeking to address the OpenSG Market Requirements to provide technical requirements and guidance in specification and compliance testing of products meeting OpenSG market requirements. Reports to OpenSG on schedule, roadmap, standards development organization status and vendor consortium status in achieving deployment of products targeting the OpenSG Market Requirements and the OpenHAN specification.

11 Smart Grid Priority Action Plan - Guidelines for the Use of IP Protocol Suite for Smart Grid Overview Develop approaches for developing Guidelines and profiles for use of IP Protocol for the smart grid. Examine the applicability and utility of the use of Internet protocol and supporting standards as the network communications infrastructure for proposed Smart Grid applications.

12 Smart Grid Priority Action Plan - Guidelines for the Use of IP Protocol Suite for Smart Grid Objectives: Review the communications networks and domains identified in the Smart Grid conceptual model and determine whether they are discussed in fine enough granularity to discuss the application of the Internet protocol suite Define the approach for fully defining the network and systems management requirements for Smart Grid networking infrastructures Define a set of standards profiles required for Smart Grid networks Identify key networking profiles issues including issues surrounding IPv4 vs. IPv6

13 Smart Grid Priority Action Plan - Guidelines for the Use of IP Protocol Suite for Smart Grid Objectives Continued: Determine the key remaining issues surrounding adoption of standardized networking profiles Determine appropriate Smart Grid network architectures and technologies appropriate for basic transport and security requirements (e.g., shared IP networks, virtual private networks, MPLS switching, traffic engineering and resource control mechanisms) Determine which transport layer security protocol(s) (e.g., TLS, DTLS, SCTP, and IPsec) are most appropriate for securing Smart Grid applications. Identify higher layer security mechanisms (e.g., XML, S/MIME) to secure transactions. Develop an action plan for development of necessary usage guides, profiles and remaining work.

14 Smart Grid Priority Action Plan - Guidelines for the Use of IP Protocol Suite for Smart Grid Tasks Involving SG Communications Develop a clear set of requirements for specific Smart Grid application areas (include key non-functional requirements with fine enough granularity). Include power engineering applications, as well as the network / communications requirements. Develop proposed models for key implementations (e.g. outage management); include Engineering Analysis. Testing and Certification for Suites of Standards. Identify plausible approaches, define types of testing needed.

16 Smart Grid Priority Action Plan - Guidelines for the Use of Wireless Communications Overview This work area investigates the strengths, weaknesses, capabilities, and constraints of existing and emerging standards-based technologies for wireless communications. The approach is to work with key SDO committees to determine the characteristics of each technology for smart grid application areas and types. Results are used to assess the appropriateness of wireless communications technologies for meeting smart grid applications.
