Capacitor Bank Control, Reclosers and Pole Tilt Monitoring with MultiTech Public and Private LTE Connectivity Products
Whether monitoring a well, a pipeline or a refinery, governments around the world are in agreement that understanding exactly what’s happening in the production and distribution of fossil fuels is of paramount importance both for global continuity of energy production as well as for environmental protection. As critical infrastructure, it is exceedingly important to protect this process from digital interference from those with technical know-how and malicious intent.
Today’s so called “smart city” consists of a set of unrelated, purpose-built applications. Parking, traffic signaling, ambulance or police car location monitoring, public utilities, HVAC at schools and IoT for smart buildings … the list goes on and on. Savvy city managers need more than local interest groups to inform them about how to spend and how to save, and the Internet of Things promises to provide the cross-departmental knowledge they need to optimize taxpayer spend as well as public services.
