Industrial Communications Network

A system wide improvement program has recently been completed by integratedSCADA for a large utility client. Over 320 devices were upgraded over 33 remote sites.
The scope included the following;

  • Upgrade network device (switches and terminal servers) firmware enabling improved features, security and compatibility with future protocols/products. Devices incorporated products from industrial networking suppliers RuggedCom and Hirschmann.
  • Implement standardised Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) configurations and parameters. Including testing of redundancy and traffic management.
  • Implement network management systems to monitor network/devices for conditions that warrant administrative attention and reporting utilising Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
  • Installation and commissioning of Industrial HiVision software for the supervision and management of devices, including switches, routers, firewalls, as well as any third-party SNMP-enabled protection IED, RTU, and communications products.
