Remote Monitoring Sees All

Oct. 16, 2017
By gaining secure remote access to operations, companies can help reduce unplanned downtime; access and capitalize on their production data; mitigate risks of the global skills shortage; and manage increasingly complex and connected operations with ease.

One of the allures of IT-OT convergence is that it presents new ways to tackle age-old challenges. That’s certainly the case with remote monitoring.

By using the ubiquitous connectivity of a converged enterprise and the wealth of data from industrial internet of things (IoT) devices, companies now can gain access to real-time information for assets, processes, lines, and plants from anywhere. And they can use these insights to help improve asset utilization, enhance quality, and more quickly recover from downtime – or even prevent downtime from occurring in the first place.

Remote monitoring has proved to be highly valuable for industrial operations located in remote and hard-to-reach locations, as is the case with mining and oil and gas operations. But it’s also increasingly proving vital in everyday manufacturing applications to help address some of the challenges that industry faces.
