Modern SCADA systems are quickly adopting Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies, such as cloud services or pub/sub protocols, to collect more data from monitored systems. As the data involved is expanding at an ever-increasing rate, today’s SCADA engineers must manage thousands of times more data than traditional SCADA systems from a decade or two ago.
When the monitoring system along a key harbor corridor in a major American city needed updating, the system manager decided to use existing copper wiring to transmit data over significantly longer distances. As this project needed to integrate more systems into one network, serial networks were no longer sufficient to support the expanded network, which is why an industrial Ethernet technology over copper wires via a DSL was required to support more bandwidth over longer distances. In addition, VPN connections and firewall protection were required to ensure network safety and data integrity. Read More
For subsea control applications, great efforts are made to install industry-specific cables under the sea. In this project, the number one requirement is to leverage the existing infrastructure to reduce costs and time spent on installing cables. In addition, oil & gas environments are extremely hazardous due to the high pressures the products are subjected to, so the installation has to be quick and must support remote management and diagnosis.
