Redline’s latest release, the RDL-LTE ruggedized networking system, is a complete end-to-end LTE broadband solution for organizations that require a secure private network to support voice, data, video, and the Internet-of-Things. LTE (Long-Term Evolution) is a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals. The RDL-LTE architecture is designed for deployments over very large coverage areas where a small to medium number of remote devices are required at roll- out. “The low- power consumption and extended range functionality makes the RDL-LTE system well suited for wide- area, low-density networks like those used for the military and oil fields, but with this release we can now add public safety to our list.” Redline’s interoperability program provides an extensive selection of third-party industrial-grade handsets and a best- in-class vehicular mobile routers and makes RDL-LTE a fit for purpose solution for first responders, law enforcement and any organization looking for a complete and secure, private industrial LTE network. It can scale to over 100,000 users and is 3GPP compliant so Redline components can easily be integrated into existing LTE systems. The RDL-LTE solution can function optimally within even limited spectrum availability. Spectrum relates to the radio frequencies allocated to the mobile industry and other sectors for communication over the airwaves. The use of the airwaves in each country is overseen by the government which Redline Communications specialise in developing innovative and powerful wide-areawirelessnetworksfor themostchallenging locationsandmission- critical applications. Redline networks are used by oil and gas companies to manage onshore and offshore assets, by militaries for secure battlefield communications, by municipalities to remotely monitor infrastructure, and by telecom service providers to deliver premium services. LTE networks provide true mobility manages the radio spectrum and issues spectrum licenses. “Very few industrial customers have spectrum they actually own and so having a private LTE network is something of a challenge but we do see that changing. LTE is the recognised technology of choice moving forward and demand in the LTE market is expected to grow rapidly, expanding worldwide. Looking to the future, we expect to see Governments setting aside – as in the case of public safety - spectrum for critical industrial markets and for investor markets acquiring their own spectrum or joining ventures with others that do have spectrum. LTE provides true mobility from a wireless perspective and the implications are immense,” believes Jeff.

Morten Wierod, Managing Director of the global Business Unit Drives and Controls, Discrete Automation and Motion Division in ABB, explains that their recent innovations in these categories are targeted at creating an environment in which all devices can be constantly monitored, resulting in a more efficient production process. encapsulated (SSE) motor which is targeted at wash-down applications. “With its high ingress protection level and fully encapsulated windings, the motor can last much longer than a standard product in tough, humid conditions. With this motor downtime and maintenance costs can be reduced and plants will enhance the food safety of their products,” says Mr. Wierod. Innovation in this space is indeed driven by world’s demand for more, better and safer food, he adds. “We can help our partners reduce the downtime of their equipment and improve the process efficiency and output. This we do by early detection and prediction of equipment failure, and by monitoring and control of all the devices in our customer’s process. Having planned instead of unplanned maintenance cycles significantly reduces the cost of a plant and drives a more reliable production process.” Mr. Wierod emphasises that the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 overall is a great opportunity for ABB. “We believe that better transparency and visibility of what is going on in the operations will enable faster and better decision making. ABB has the right people, products, services and tools to identify and realise these improvements for our customers.” A Swedish-Swiss multinational corporation headquartered in Zürich, Switzerland, ABB is best known for its expertise in robotics and the power and automation technology areas. ABB has operations in around 100 countries, generating more than 35 billion USD in revenue in 2015. The company prides itself on its reputation as a pioneering technology leader, says Mr. Wierod. “We have opened the door for an exciting future for our customers, for our employeesandforanystakeholdergroup that is in touch with us.” The ABB business unit Mr. Wierod is in charge of, Drives and Controls, is heavily focused on industrial automation. In this ABB Website: www.abb.com space, the company recently launched a smart sensor that can be attached to any motorinacustomer’splant.“Thissensor then delivers information about the health of the motor so that maintenance actions can be taken before the motor fails and causes production downtime,” Mr. Wierod explains. He additionally highlights the new ABB Ability™ platform,whichisaplacewherealldigital solutionscometogether.“Byhavingallof thembasedonthesameplatform,ABBis capableofofferingend-to-endsolutions to our customers in all industries we servemakingourcustomers’liveseasier.” For the food and beverage industry, ABB recently introduced a new stainless steel
