Today, INIVEN continues the Conolog tradition of solving complex communication challenges for electric utilities, fiber optic communication service providers and the US military. As an innovator in protective relaying and monitoring solutions, INIVEN engineers custom-configured communication equipment ranging from fully digital high speed transfer trip communications for use in electric power transmission pilot protection schemes (PDR-2000), original fiber optic solutions including passive fiber signal monitoring (GlowWorm) and active control of fiber network communication (Fidra). INIVEN and Conolog Corporation are committed to helping customers maximize the security and reliability of their network infrastructure.
