Stop Wasting Energy on M2M

  1. 1. Smarter, scaling, more IT-centric solutions for M2M/IoT projects in utilities and energy markets Stop Wasting Energy on M2M
  2. 2. M2M has existed in energy and utilities for a long time So why do we need to do things differently ? RTU SCADA DCS Modbus Edge HART Fieldbus Condition-Monitoring Client-Server DNP3 Zigbee Telemetry M2M telecontrol PLC IoT VPN CLOUD telematics IEC 60870 Profibus
  3. 3. Lack of interoperability = -$$$ Duplication of functionality = -$$$ Inability to share resources & infrastructure= -$$$ Inability to adapt and modify = -$$$ Old vs. New in M2M SCADA ESD Condition Monitoring HVAC Point in Time solutions have lead to increased costs
  4. 4. The Internet of Things Why Eurotech implemented it before the term existed Multi-Drop Polled Circuits Operation Consoles FEP Host Enterprise Applications • Poll/Response Paradigm uses 100% of available bandwidth • The data “Transport” is the “Application” • One protocol for all field equipment limits deployment of new technology & impedes migration to new technologies

  6. 6. • One To One Data Relationship • Primary Business Activity Is Not Addressed • 60%-90% of Project Effort on Data Delivery • Costly Bandwidth Consumption • Protocol is the Transport – Can’t break apart Protocol X Implementation Barrier “The Enterprise” ERP Accounting Inventory EFM/AMR Modeling CRM Maintenance “Operations” SCADA” “DCS” “other” Host Computer ? ? ? ? $$$ € € € € € $$$ € € € € € The Internet of Things Why Eurotech implemented it before the term existed
  7. 7. Instead, systems have to collaborate • Better reuse of existing resources and infrastructures = +$$$ • Focus on whole business, not individual processes = +$$$ • Improved ecosystem efficiency from new dependency discovery = +$$$ • More intelligent use of assets = better ROI = +$$$ Process Logistics Supply Chain CRM Old vs. New in M2M
  8. 8. How do we make this happen ? What needs to be done differently ? •Think holistically, not about point in time problems - Often, an M2M system is seen as a point in time solution to a point in time problem. No consideration (budget) is given to how and where else the data might be used, or to how future, undefined assets might share the same infrastructure. Project led thinking remains one of the fundamental contributors to the continuing deployment of silos of automation, invariably resulting in significant downstream costs as new requirements emerge. •Think data centric, not device centric – if a system needs to know in advance any device specific information in order to recover data from an it, then the data can’t be reused flexibly. This information must be abstracted by the platform, and stakeholder applications should only concern themselves with the types of information they are interested in. •Think about remote device management via a common infrastructure – the ability to remotely manage a population of installed devices saves significantly on the lifetime cost of ownership of a system – FACT ! Make sure that you can do this over the same infrastructure used for the data recovery, and make sure the features cover what you need – application deployment & maintenance, device restart, diagnostics, firmware upgrades etc. •Leverage existing technology solutions, don’t create ‘another’ standard – Great standards already exist to achieve the functionality needed in systems – VPNs, SSH tunnelling, SSL/IPSEC security, REST APIS for database access etc. Given the huge horizontal reach of IoT technology, no ‘one size fits all’ standard protocol is going to emerge, instead of trying to define one, use the most appropriate of the existing protocols in this space and focus on interoperability above the middleware layer.

  17. 17. M2M Integration Platform •Everyware Cloud is about Device Data, about M2M: It has been built from the ground-up to provide an infrastructure that is optimized for device data communication, collection, analysis and management. •It is an Integration Platform: Everyware Cloud is designed to act as an intermediate system between distributed devices and the applications interacting with them. Communication is bidirectional, allowing applications to control and manage the devices when required, and the system supports one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-one operation. •Everyware Cloud is conceptually like an Operating System for the Internet of Things, enabling the transfer of device data to and from Enterprise applications independently of any other language, platform or OS What is Everyware Cloud?

  20. 20. Eurotech M2M Solutions Eurotech Named a Cool Vendor in Gartner 2013 IT/OT Alignment and Integration Report According to the Gartner report recommendations, “Integration managers should look at cloud-based integration platforms supporting vendor neutral-technologies to optimize costs, accelerate time to deployment, and reduce vendor lock-in for integration of OT systems with enterprise applications.” “Integration managers and other IT leaders involved in the definition and planning of IT/OT integration strategies should look at iPaaS-oriented approaches to address the issues of collecting, aggregating, filtering, preprocessing and analyzing OT data, and of integrating OT systems with back-end enterprise applications as a way to optimize costs and time to deployment,” according to the report. Gartner, Inc., Cool Vendors in IT/OT Alignment and Integration, Kristian Steenstrup, Massimo Pezzini, et al, April 23, 2013.

  21. 21. Eurotech's M2M / IoT Value Proposition • Gartner / Cool Vendors in IT/OT Alignment Report “However, they should also favor providers, such as Eurotech, that offer open-standards- based platforms, and can support on-premises deployment models to minimize vendor lock-in issues and maintain strategic agility.” • Eclipse Foundation / M. Milinkovich “I just got the full Eclipse Kura demo and I was blown away. Very cool stuff.” • VDC Research Group “With two decades of embedded/M2M experience, existing capabilities, and investments, we expect Eurotech to differentiate itself versus other traditional embedded board vendors as the company moves up the value chain.” • Harbor Research, White Paper “Eurotech has organized a novel combination of tools and technologies that work together in unprecedented ways to solve more complex business problems than previous generations of intelligent device networking technology and enterprise applications have been able.” Some Voices….
