Forum to focus on enery sector technology
Abu Dhabi, June 13, 2013
The concept of communication between devices, machines and bringing energy fields closer to each other will be the focus of a conference to be held next week in Abu Dhabi.
The M2M Technology Forum, organised by IQPC, will be held on June 18 and19 at the Le Royal Meridien.
Experts from various companies and associations including Adma-Opco, ViaSat, Inmarsat, Emerson, Gazprom, Fiber Optic Association, Crescent Petroleum, Aggreko International, Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association and many more will participate in the conference.
Scada, telemetry and M2M solutions can be found throughout the oil and gas value chain, including applications such as drilling and well monitoring, fiscal metering, and pipeline monitoring.
Wireless technologies such as private radio, cellular and satellite communication can provide online connectivity and availability at reasonable costs and deliver high performance.
All of these components combined enable the delivery of operations management, equipment management and regulatory compliance applications, linking remote equipment and enterprise IT systems.
“Attendance at the summit will allow face-to-face interaction with technology leaders and solution providers to better understand and optimise communication expenditure for remote assets. Furthermore, the sessions will allow participants to keep in touch with the evolution of satellite technology and cyber security value adds available in the market today,” said Roy Drakos, director of International Business Development of Global Satcom at ViaSat, US.
The conference will also have workshops, conducted by the Device Management Forum group from the UK and the Fiber Optic Association from the United States. - TradeArabia News Service
