ABSTRACT

The mission of utilities is to provide electricity, gas, steam, water, and other services to customers in a safe, secure, reliable, efficient, and environmentally sound manner. The smooth and continuous operation of Transmission & Distribution networks is critical to delivering that mission - underpinning smart city initiatives. With constrained budgets and limited resources to inspect and maintain their infrastructure, utilities are in an increasingly reactive mode, as opposed to proactive mitigation. Legacy infrastructure, urbanization, climate change, malicious actors, and other meta-issues are further stressing the grid. This workshop features a case study with a leading utility and outlines the latest developments in Industrial IoT that puts utilities in control; transforming passive, reactive infrastructure to enlightened, dynamic and automated networks. Ruggedized sensoring systems that securely communicate with a sophisticated cloud-based platform provides an end-to-end smart solution that delivers perpetual connectivity of utility assets and enables the monitoring, maintenance, and monetization of infrastructure networks.
