The Future of the Smart Pipeline
Schneider Electric and Cisco recently hosted their first industry Customer Advisory Board meeting on Smart Connected Pipelines, featuring representation from key major North American pipeline operators. The board appreciated that the technology met their highest needs and industry requirements, and that we completed extensive testing and validation in our joint labs in Houston, Raleigh, and Calgary.
The validated guidelines allowed them to leverage the best of IT technology while lowering their total cost of ownership (TCO) and improving their ease of use. At the same time, this solution delivers the level of security and reliability required for critical operational environments.
Along with a detailed review of the first phase of the initiative, the event covered key topics such as: IoT Cybersecurity, Big Data Analytics, Fog Computing, Internet of Things (IoT) in the pipeline industry, and new innovations.
Schneider Electric and Cisco are planning the second iteration of the Smart Connected Pipeline to launch this year with enhanced security capabilities. It will also feature recommendations for non-operational environments such as physical security, video surveillance, and collaboration tools. The next iteration will continue to deliver cost savings and optimized operations, all in one package.
