In power distribution network, smart meter technology is now becoming evident to operate power utilities in a globalize environment and cope with the changing requirement and technologies. Smart meters in distribution network are one of the challenging and subtle tasks to address in order to visualize the distribution network into digital world under communication protocol of IEC 61850. Smart meters, a dedicated gateway to customer home in distribution network, is important because of communication arena is changing day by day. So it is convenient to deploy and incur a cost effectiveness of asset when migration is to be considered since data-intensive applications drive the incremental demand for bandwidth by new communication protocol IEC 61850. This paper presents analysis and crucial need for incremental demand for bandwidth for smart meters in distribution network, the scope of the new communication protocol for IEC 61850.
