Network Connectivity Concerns for Geographically Challenged Systems
Recently, Quantum discussed how traditional industrial control systems have always been geared around the factory floor where the entire ICS resides in one large factory. Unfortunately, the factory floor ICS designs and recommendations can plague geographically challenged systems. During this breakout session, we will review items discussed during the Automation Village Tradeshow, but with a deeper emphasis on network improvements for geographically challenged systems. This breakout session is ideal for water/wastewater, oil/gas and mining ICS owners.
- Virtual Tradeshow, April 23, 2020:
Network Connectivity Concerns in Geographically Challenged Systems
Traditionally industrial control systems have always been geared around the factory floor where the entire ICS resides in one, or several, closely located buildings. Unfortunately, the geographical separation of water/wastewater, oil/gas and mining infrastructures do not fit the same parameters. To ensure a geographically challenged system operates efficiently, there are some best practices considerations and additional required engineering necessary prior to purchasing and installing equipment.
