Managing Pipeline Monitoring Stations in Public Utilities Networks

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

Large enterprise networks, like those found in public utilities applications, present many unique challenges when implementing an out-of-band management solution. Due to the sheer size and complexity of most public utilities networks, an effective out-of-band management solution must provide sufficient scalability to meet the needs of both large equipment sites such as data centers and also small equipment sites such as pipeline monitoring stations.

Manage Remote Pipeline Monitoring Stations via Cellular Broadband

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

The task of managing networked elements in Pipeline Monitoring applications presents a unique challenge for network administrators. The isolated location of most pipeline monitoring stations, coupled with the number of individual monitoring stations involved creates a situation where out-of-band communication via secondary network cable or regular dial-up is often completely out of the question. Fortunately, cellular broadband communication via 3G/4G modem offers a workable solution for managing network elements at far-flung pipeline monitoring stations.

Keeping Tabs on Remote Pipeline Monitoring Stations via Cellular Broadband

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

Given the importance of pipeline monitoring stations and the remote nature of installation sites, the task of monitoring network elements at distant pipeline monitoring stations can often prove to be a challenge. While direct communication via secondary network cable, satellite communication and dial-up communication are sometimes not an option, cellular broadband communication via 3G/4G modem can provide a workable, out-of-band solution for managing network devices at remote pipeline installations.

Out-of-Band Access to Network Equipment at Remote Cell Towers via 3G or 4G Modem

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

The task of managing network devices located at remote cell towers can present a formidable challenge for network administrators. Due to the remote location of many cell towers, normal channels for out-of-band communication, such as a direct network connection or dial-up connection, are often out of the question. In cases like this, network management via wireless broadband using a 3G/4G modem can provide a workable solution for out-of-band communication.

Remote Network Management Solutions for Pipeline Monitoring Stations

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Remote pipeline monitoring applications present a unique challenge to network managers. Given the inaccessible nature of many pipeline sites and the importance of assuring that the pipeline is safe from accidents and tampering, monitoring stations are typically installed at regular intervals along the route of the pipeline to allow remote administrators to keep an eye on conditions at remote pipeline locations.
