Leading Industrial Monitoring Providers Depend on KORE to Ensure the Delivery of Critical Data
One of the original M2M markets, SCADA (Supervisory, Control and Data Acquisition) control systems have been widely used in oil, gas and other process management industries for more than 20 years. Through SCADA systems and standards, M2M technology is being used to extract data from non-IT devices such as electrical, gas and oil meters as well as a myriad of other devices and deliver the data to critical business and monitoring systems, ensuring they are operating as intended and providing diagnostic reporting if they are not for faster, proactive troubleshooting.
The ability to monitor and control electrical power systems, water, oil and gas networks provides utility industries with a more cost-effective way to measure utilization (in real-time); the ability to manage supply and to more effectively anticipate demand; identify and fix problems; and ensure regulatory and safety compliance. The cost savings associated with measuring utilization and providing maintenance functions is greatly enhanced when meters and other network elements are in remote or hard-to-reach locations.
Harbor Research calls this “Pervasive Intelligence”; allowing businesses to make immediate decisions based on accurate, real-time data.
While the genesis of the industrial monitoring applications started in the utility and energy space, the market is broadening to support an ever-growing variety of new businesses, from retail outlets and fast-food restaurants to major production and business facilities. For example, Burger King has implemented wireless M2M solutions where devices capture alarms, send notifications, receive and process remote energy and security information and then uploads this to centralized business systems. The implementation of these solutions drives cost savings associated with energy efficiency, reduced peak demands and protection of perishable inventory or any other asset that may negatively impacted by loss of electricity, pressure, refrigeration or light.
