RTI and National Instruments Partner to Discuss IIC Microgrid Testbed and Keys to Adoption
SUNNYVALE, Calif.—July 21, 2015—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "How to Architect Microgrids for the Industrial Internet of Things" in partnership with fellow Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) member, National Instruments (NI).
The power grid is changing. With the proliferation of renewable generation technologies and drive to improve demand response, the grid's current architecture must change to realize the promise of the IIoT.
The challenges in the power grid require responsive, distributed communication and control at the edge of the grid that are inherently scalable, resilient and secure. Further, most grids have a unique set of requirements making a "one-size-fits-all" solution impractical. The Industrial Internet provides technologies that streamline the development and deployment of a new, smart power grid.
To deliver Industrial Internet systems in the field, recommendations in three key areas should be considered:
- Component-level interoperability
- Scalable control
- Real-time data security
Brett Murphy, Director of Business Development at RTI, and Brett Burger, Principal Product Marketing Manager, Smart Grid Applications at National Instruments, will discuss the keys to microgrid adoption and how the IIC Microgrid Testbed for Communication and Control implements edge processing and machine-to-machine communication.
What: "How to Architect Microgrids for the Industrial Internet of Things" complimentary webinar
When: Thursday, July 23, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET
Who: Brett Murphy, Director of Business Development at RTI, and Brett Burger, Principal Product Marketing Manager, Smart Grid Applications at National Instruments
