IoT and the Oil & Gas industry at M2M Oil & Gas 2014 in London

  1. 1. How Eurotech's IoT architecture had its roots in the oil & gas industry, and why it is still relevant today Tim Taberner How the Internet of Things is catching up with the Oil & Gas industry
  2. 2. M2M has been around in oil & gas 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
  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 Old methods lead to increased costs
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. The Internet of Things Why we started implementing it before the term existed Multi-Drop Polled Circuits Operation Consoles FEPHost 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

  11. 11. So what about today? Sometimes M2M Solutions look simple … Business Application Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Service Gateway A single application to communicate with Only one type of Gateway HW & SW, Single or no special application on gateway Limited types of device / sensor No connectivity options required 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. This project led thinking remains one of the fundamental contributors to the continuing specification and deployment of silos of automation, invariably resulting in significant downstream costs to modify, augment or replace the system to meet emerging requirements.
  12. 12. What are the issues ? … Different devices, addressing different vertical market propositions, and which are geographically dispersed Business Applications Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Remote Point of Presence ? We need a way to operate across multiple communication architectures that does not introduce significant overhead on expensive media Internet / TCP/IP Ethernet WiFi 3G / LTE Satellite WiMAX Other
  13. 13. What are the issues ? ...or more than one consumer of the device data …or multiple different services needed at the remote site @ Business Applications Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Remote Point of Presence ? We need to break any dependency between producers and consumers of data
  14. 14. What are the issues ? ... normally all of these requirements together ! @ Business Applications Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Remote Point of Presence ? …and we need to address security, access control, availability, device management, etc.

  20. 20. 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?

  24. 24. 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.

  25. 25. 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….
