The growth of the Internet, the success of existing mobile connectivity and upcoming M2M connectivity
through 5G suggest that the next trend will be an increasing demand for IoT in operations. SCADA Systems are deployed in GAIL to monitor and control different P/L processes. IoT (Internet of Thing) is one of the most disruptive innovations of recent times. IoT supported by tools, techniques and infrastructure has been capable of resolving macro level issues in an automated industry.
Early SCADA systems were deployed to monitor specific production processes, and separate systems were employed to manage assets, coordinate maintenance operations, and optimize supply chains and other business operations. Today’s enterprises are frequently composed of a patchwork of these legacy information systems. One of the concepts central to the IoT is M2M communication. By giving machines the ability to make decisions and perform actions based on nothing more than information provided to them by other machines, SCADA technology completely redefined the processes involved in industries like manufacturing, water treatment, oil and gas, and much more. Task automation driven by mechanically autonomous devices has improved the speed, efficiency, and quality of industrial processes.
To achieve combined benefits like business analytics, economical decision making etc. integration of SCADA and IoT is required in secure architecture. This proposed presentation is meant to highlights SCADA and IoT integration with secured implementation for different Critical Infrastructure. GAIL has centralized SCADA System integrated with SAP, Gas Reconciliation Modules and Centralized APPS for Leak Detection and Inventory analytics.
In this session we will discuss about integration of IoT and SCADA under secure architecture along with its
benefits, implication, challenges and way ahead.
