The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN
(SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational
changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and
high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud
security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport.
The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were
start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN
use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies
offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial,
When it comes to worker safety, efficiency and production, nothing is
faster than right now. Organizations across various energy segments —
oil, gas, petrochemical, electric utilities, water utilities and mining — are
currently juggling a mix of communications solution devices and are
hindered by gaps in coverage, poor battery life and fragile equipment
that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions. The power of
now puts instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because
when communication slows, operation slows.
Citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, clean running
water and lights that turn on when they flip the switch. Meeting these
expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for
energy workers day-in and day-out. So workers can communicate safely
in hazardous environments. So precious resources are not wasted and
efficient operations are maintained. So energy companies can continue
to exceed expectations.
There are many paths and possible entry points, from standalone
software solutions to sophisticated business process management
systems and full outsourcing. Each has its own advantages, drawbacks, potential benefts and level of risk.
Developing an optimal arc flash protection strategy
for a given facility can be difficult due to the number of solutions
and system variables involved. Effective arc flash hazard reduction
is best achieved by establishing an overall system protection
strategy that accounts for safety and operational requirements as
well as system reliability and availability. An overview of available
solution categories and application guidance based on experience
in a wide variety of facility types is presented in order to assist
engineers trying to implement “safety by design” principles
to help deal with arc flash hazards. The approach provided addresses
the complexities of the trade-offs between competing priorities
and provides tools that help users develop effective protection
strategies for the unique circumstances in a given facility.
Keeping aging switchgear performing at optimum performance levels can be challenging. When it comes to the reliability of an electrical distribution system, it’s not a question of if a system component will malfunction, but when. Electrical equipment ultimately degrades and reaches the end of its useful life, no matter how much maintenance is performed. And, with the advancements in the design of the new circuit breakers, those with older technology are no longer considered sustainable solutions.
Plant managers and engineers must ensure continuity of operations and develop a plan to replace or upgrade aging switchgear. Facilities without a properly-implemented strategy put operations at risk that could lead to safety issues, equipment damage and/or downtime.
What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of software-based
network technologies to WAN connections to more effectively route all network traffic
between headquarters or data centers, remote and branch offices, and the cloud.
More simply, it is the method of leveraging the benefits of the cloud, the bandwidth of
broadband and existing enterprise-wide network infrastructure to more efficiently and
cost effectively transmit media (data, video, voice) and quickly access cloud
applications from every location in the network.
SD-WAN dynamically utilizes multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband, LTE)
to find the optimal delivery path for traffic across the entire network, shaping the
bandwidth as needed to eliminate jitter and dropped data packets, thereby delivering
an optimal user experience regardless of location.
The more sophisticated solutions will first attempt to dynamically steer traffic to the
best available link and if the available link
The biggest headache for most payment operations teams is cost control — and a large part of it comes from fraud management:
Investigation teams waste large amounts of time just assembling the data needed to make decisions.
Detection engines are always playing catchup with the latest fraud patterns.
Ever changing regulations increase the time and cost required to reach compliance and meet audit standards.
Given their scope and impact, replacing core fraud systems is not an option for most firms. But instead of replacing them, you can improve the investigative process with augmented investigation, and improve the detection process by enhancing current systems.
This whitepaper describes three ways financial services firms can use TIBCO solutions to lower the cost of investigations through faster results, reduce fraud losses through better detection, and simplify audit and regulatory compliance through centralized access to information.
Much has already been said and written about the infiltration of robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation (IA) technologies into the workforce. In truth, it’s taken the corporate world a while to test, trust and commit to automation at work.
To understand how far APAC/ANZ markets have advanced towards acting on these opportunities, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveyed the market and found that across the region corporations were forward thinking in building for scale, trusting technology and recognising the need to incorporate robotics into both IT infrastructure and enterprise strategy.
This report explains how enterprises across APAC/ANZ are staying ahead of the global wave of RPA, the most popular solutions they are choosing, who the preferred consultants or 'integrators' are, the challenges, and how the digital workforce is being integrated into the human one.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
Watch this webinar to learn how TIBCO’s Smart Manufacturing solutions can help you overcome these challenges. You will also see a demonstration of TIBCO technology in action around improving yield and optimizing processes while also saving costs.
For years, manufacturers have been trying to streamline processes and associated supply chains by building marketplaces, standardized exchanges, and monolithic systems. In many cases, these solutions missed the mark, resulting in fragmented and brittle processes without easy data sharing.
Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, can potentially solve these problems. Sharing information via a trusted distributed network with embedded business logic offers many benefits for manufacturing, especially when combined with the IoT and AI communities.
