Abstract—In this paper, Fusion networking technology is proposed as a solution for transporting time critical traffic in wide area network power system protection applications among utility substations, to attain deterministic low delay, zero packet loss and ultra-low packet delay variation. Use case applications are explained for communication between two substations and more than two substations using the Fusion networking technology. In addition, the requirements for inter substation communications are presented with focus on the IEC 61850 protocols of Generic Object Oriented Substation Event (GOOSE) and Sampled Values (SMV) and their adaptability to the traffic classes of guaranteed service transport (GST) and statistically multiplexed (SM) in Fusion networking technology.
