Red Lion Integrates Wi-Fi and Adds Carrier Certifications to Sixnet RAM® 9000 Portfolio

Industrial Cellular RTUs Increase Connectivity and Network Coverage in North America

YORK, Pa., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced the addition of new RAM® 9000 models to its Sixnet series of industrial cellular RTUs in North America. These cellular RTUs now offer Wi-Fi models for local wireless communication as well as new carrier options, which allow customers to connect, monitor and control assets and processes regardless of location.

Red Lion's Sixnet series of RAM 9000 cellular RTUs now offer Wi-Fi models for local wireless communication as well as new AT&T and Verizon carrier options, which allow customers to connect, monitor and control assets and processes regardless of location.

"Red Lion recognizes the need for reliable wireless connectivity that incorporates both cellular and Wi-Fi. This is especially helpful in industries like unconventional oil and gas and utilities where sites can be difficult to access," comments ARC Advisory Group analyst Harry Forbes. "These industries need remote data 24/7, but they also want to conduct local inspections of connected equipment without disturbing their assets by hooking up wired test equipment."  

Red Lion's RAM 9000 Wi-Fi provides IEEE 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz) access point functionality, which supports Wi-Fi enabled laptops and I/O devices and delivers robust security via WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption. RAM 9000 industrial cellular RTUs combine built-in I/O and active GPS with RS232 and RS485 serial and Ethernet ports to securely monitor remote devices via 3G/4G LTE cellular networks. With more I/O than many competitive offerings, this cellular automation platform enables customers to save time, space and cost by combining separate technologies into a single device.

"Integration of Wi-Fi into our RAM 9000 cellular RTUs allows personnel to commission, monitor and troubleshoot their systems without the need to physically connect a cable or open a cabinet," said Paul Bunnell, product manager, process automation for Red Lion Controls. "The addition of new Verizon and AT&T models gives users the power to choose their preferred network provider. This extended network coverage enables remote monitoring across industrial applications that include oil and gas, water/wastewater, utilities and transportation."

The new Sixnet series of industrial cellular RTUs include:

  • RAM 9601 – Verizon 3G with 1 Ethernet port
  • RAM 9611 – Verizon 3G with 2 Ethernet ports
  • RAM 9631 – Verizon 3G with 2 Ethernet ports and Wi-Fi option
  • RAM 9731 – AT&T 4G LTE with 2 Ethernet ports and Wi-Fi option

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
As companies gain momentum, the need to maintain high quality products can outstrip their development team’s bandwidth for QA. Building out a large QA team (whether in-house or outsourced) can slow down development and significantly increases costs.

Actian Corporation has announced the latest version of the Actian Vector in Hadoop (VectorH) database, generally available at the end of July. VectorH is based on the same query engine that powers Actian Vector, which recently doubled the TPC-H benchmark record for non-clustered systems at the 3000GB scale factor (see tpc.org/3323). The ability to easily ingest information from different data sources and rapidly develop queries to make better business decisions is becoming increasingly importan...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
