Setting up a secure SCADA infrastructure network for communications to PACs can be time-consuming, complex, and expensive. The network’s reliability, availability, and security is critical to the continuous operation of your process. A home-grown solution or a network relying on RF radios and leased line modems can be expensive and a strain on limited resources for many utilities, which don’t typically have the budget or the workforce to support and maintain the complex networks.
In this session, attendees will find out how an OT- and IT-friendly “always on” network can be used to facilitate secure and reliable SCADA communications to remote PAC sites. You’ll learn how a managed network between your SCADA and remote equipment can provide an efficient alternative to a traditional communications infrastructure, which can require significant setup and continued maintenance work on the part of your workforce. The session will also cover the security and setup considerations SCADA users need to be aware of when selecting and establishing an always-on network.
