Oil and Gas
Serial M2M communication solution supporting SCADA and MODBUS over TCP for Oil & Gas application
The Oil & Gas sector requires high bandwidth, low latency, and secure and reliable communications systems in the most remote locations. As the Oil & Gas companies have to make time-critical decisions in real-time, the communication devices must support high availability and security. Thus, the system integrator was looking for an LTE solution to optimize the stability and the security of data transmission between sensors and the control centre, as well as to boost system efficiency and minimize the occurrence of connection failures.
The device must support Serial communication with MODBUS all over the TCP protocol to transmit data from sensors to the central control console. MODBUS was designed to provide client-server communication between devices such as PLC, HMI, Control Panel, Moto Driver, Card Reader, Meters, I/O device, etc. in different networks on the serial port.
High Availability and Redundancy
M100 supports both GbE EWAN and LTE wireless connections. Either wired or wireless connection can be set up flexibly to the primary or backup WAN port. M100 monitors the primary and backup connection for fully automated failover. When the primary WAN interface fails, the secondary WAN interface will automatically back up the connection, allowing the WAN interface to restore in time and minimize service interruption.
Highly secured and protected
M100 supports IPSec VPN to build up to 16 private and encrypted transmission tunnels in which secure information transmission is guaranteed between the managed endpoint and data centre over the public internet.
