Techniques are described herein to timely deliver Power Outage Notification (PON) messages when a power outage occurs in smart utilities. Irrelevant packets may be proactively prevented by broadcasting the PON alert to notify the surrounding nodes, and may also be filtered and discarded when a node is experiencing an outage. Multiple PON packets may be intelligently aggregated and compressed.
