How did your utility perform in the last storm?


Major U.S. extreme weather events doubled in 2020. Can your ADMS handle the new normal?

Utilities are in a new era of extreme weather, growing network complexity and heightened customer expectations. Meanwhile, regulatory pressure is building to deliver faster outage restoration and more accurate restoration time estimates. For many utilities, the strength of their outage management system is being tested like never before.

Oracle Utilities Network Management System (NMS) stands alone among leading advanced distribution management systems (ADMS) for having the most robust, storm-proven outage management capabilities.

Do you want to ensure?

  • Reliable and scalable performance through the worst storms
  • Faster restoration through FLISR, switching, protection setting automation and full situational awareness for control room operators and for field crews via mobile app
  • More accurate estimated times of restoration with available analytics for real-time reporting and communications
  • Real-time control with power flow state estimation functionality

Designed for the distribution grid and built to withstand the worst storms

With over 50 million metered utility customers in production, Oracle Utilities NMS is one of the world’s most widely deployed distribution and outage management systems. NMS is a fully-featured, “single pane of glass” ADMS that integrates with the broadest array of SCADA systems and grid field devices. Full situational awareness is provided to both grid operators and field crews who can assess damage, execute switching and complete outages using the Operations Mobile Application (OMA). Zero blinds spots from the substation to the meter means better field safety and more efficient operations.

Most importantly, Oracle Utilities NMS is built to withstand the biggest storms and the massive surges in network and call data that accompany them. Over the past decade, NMS has supported dozens of named storms with 100% reliability. Where other OMS solutions fall down, Oracle Utilities NMS keeps running at full speed, resulting in fewer outages, faster restoration and more accurate estimated restoration times (ERTs).

Choose Oracle Utilities NMS for your ADMS – the highest reliability when you need it most.
