OSIsoft and Schneider Electric Ink Deal to Deliver Energy Management Solutions

Feb 01, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- OSIsoft, provider of the PI System, an infrastructure technology for the management of real-time data and events, and Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, announced a strategic technology agreement to provide an energy management solution.

According to a release, the joint solution combines Schneider Electric's energy management expertise with the streaming data and event management capabilities of OSIsoft's PI System. Schneider Electric will offer the solution, which provides a way to collect, store and aggregate large volumes of a data with high speed access for analytics via the StruxureWare software suite, to building owners and managers, architects, and IT Managers.

"The integration of the PI System capabilities into Schneider Electric's StruxureWare software suite will produce a number of specific technology solutions addressing markets such as mining and minerals processing, waste and waste water and food and beverage, and green buildings," said Pascal Brosset. "We will be leveraging OSIsoft's tools across many of our software applications as we deliver customized energy management solutions for our customers around the globe." OSIsoft said its PI System infrastructure is used in many industries providing access to operational and manufacturing data. The data is leveraged by enterprises to drive operational excellence, provide situational awareness and tackle global enterprise mandates such as energy management and more globally, sustainability.

Schneider Electric noted that its EcoStruxure active energy management architecture portfolio offers a single point of access that connects five domains of business expertise - power, data centers, process and machines, building control, and physical security - all within an open and flexible technology framework. The EcoStruxure architecture is focused on managing all energy-consuming building assets, such as HVAC, lighting, security and reducing energy waste generated from Information Technology assets, including PCs, and other IT devices. StruxureWare is the software backbone that connects Schneider Electric's comprehensive EcoStruxure energy management architecture portfolio. From a single point of access, it provides intelligent monitoring, automation, planning and reporting on critical facility management systems.

As part of the overall relationship with Schneider Electric, OSIsoft has a technical partnership with Telvent, a Schneider Electric Company. Telvent embeds OSIsoft's products within their solution using a value added approach as part of a global offering. This is an extension of Telvent's ongoing strategy focused on Smart Grid solutions that enhance product offerings in mission critical applications and infrastructure. Telvent's offerings provide solutions for the repository of data and real-time transfer for decision support across a range of industries as well, including oil & gas, power, energy, transportation, transport, and environment.

"Rising energy costs and increased environmental concerns have made energy efficiency an imperative for every business. Effective energy management requires a high fidelity view of where and how energy and other resources are consumed; the PI System provides this view," says Martin Otterson, senior vice president of sales, marketing, and industry at OSIsoft. "Whether you run a traditional or high tech factory, manage local or distributed facilities, operate a data center or other energy intensive businesses, this collaboration will deliver a comprehensive energy management solution that combines the strengths of both companies to address the global challenge of energy management and sustainability."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
