The 4th generation of SCADA, based on IIoT technologies, is the biggest revolution in the industrial and utilities markets since the adoption of modern controller and automation technologies. It makes the entire operation and management of devices, facilities, Networks and processes smarter, simpler, safer, more flexible and widely available. At the same time, new aims and cyber security issues force developers to be more creative and create more reliable and much more secured systems.
4th Generation SCADA is based off of Cloud Controlled SCADA, which provides dramatically lower costs and improved system reliability. However, “all in one” 4th generation SCADA is much more than just real time Remote control operation system, it is also a Data Management platform from A to Z, from the Data acquisition to Big Data analytics, and by that it is possible not only to operate and control the system in a real time, it’s also can be use to increase the efficiency. The system starts with Data Acquisition+Communications and Telemetry+IT+HMI+Big Data.
In the presentation we’ll discuss technology, security, safety, implementation, ease of use, CAPEX & OPEX models V-A-V legacy SCADA technologies and we’ll explore the implementation of the new technology by a couple of case studies from different applications done in the USA & Global market.
