IEC 61850 (MMS) running over LTE

Giang T. Pham did some research on running IEC 61850 (MMS) over LTE. The result is a Master Thesis at the University of Twente:

“Integration of IEC 61850 MMS and LTE to support smart metering communications”

“… The objective of this research is to integrate IEC 61850 MMS and LTE to support communications between smart meters and the central meter data management system. The research includes a literature study of IEC 61850 MMS protocol, focusing on its requirements to support smart metering communication, and simulation-based performance evaluation of IEC 61850 MMS smart metering traffic over LTE network. …

… Since both MMS and LTE support the use of TCP/IP communication profile, the mapping of MMS over LTE to support remote control communication is feasible … the simulation results prove that the integration of IEC 61850 MMS and LTE is not only possible but also provides good performance in term of delay, throughput and packet loss.
