RTUs at the Edge
Kevin Finnan, Yokogawa
Room: 361 A

Do today’s emerging Internet of Things (IoT) technologies pose a threat to SCADA systems as we know them today? Do edge devices, which provide fog-based analytics to remote processes, similarly pose a threat to remote terminal units (RTUs)?

Since the industry already agrees that IoT technologies offer numerous benefits, a better question is how can users migrate their present-day SCADA systems to take the best advantage of the IoT?

Track: System Architecture for Industrial Control Systems

Stop Looking Through the Tunnel and See the Horizon: Leveraging the Regulations for a Well-Engineered System to Meet Your Customer’s Needs
Cory Crenshaw, Crenshaw Communications Consulting, LLC
Kim Kobbe, Cerento, Inc.
Room: 351 E
Silver Scribe 2nd Place Winner

We focus on the areas that we know and are comfortable with. Engineers look at the system design, tower crews look at stacking the tower and attorneys look at the legal side. However, for the best system to meet your customer’s needs, a close partnership between the RF engineering team and the regulatory expert must to be established. Join us today to learn how to design the best system possible for your customer while using the regulations to your advantage. We will discuss how engineering and regulations can work synergistically, waivers, special considerations, how to navigate tricky regulatory roadblocks and of course, making the regulations work for your project!
