                              The HardFiber System uses IEC 61850 to communicate measurements and commands between Bricks and relays in the control building over dedicated point-to-point
                              fiber optic connections that avoids cyber-security issues altogether.

The HardFiber System can easily be incrementally scaled to include new equipment as stations evolve. Duplicated Bricks in the switchyard provide a drastic improvement
in reliability and security over today’s technology.
