--John Campbell, VP of Operations, Sierra Resources
Meshify was selected as the remote communication (sometimes called “call-out” system) for a new gas-processing facility in South Texas. The solution required an economical option with a quick deadline for remotely connecting and communicating with many different systems in a local area.
Meshify used the M1 DragonFly products over AT&T cellular connectivity to connect ABB Total Flows, Siemens PLC’s (with 10 tanks reading in) and several digital in/outs for critical infrastructure status monitoring like flares. The system uses Meshify edge analytics and real-time message-based infrastructure to send real-time significant values to the servers. No polling engines are used and no VPN’s are required. Rather the system makes a secure outbound connection from each individual M1 to the server and communicates over encrypted tunnels to ensure security.
Business Analytics were assembled in a custom dashboard for Sierra in a matter of a few days with several feedback loops between Meshify and Sierra Resources. The system notifications are defined by Sierra and can be self-managed. Access as well can be self-managed by Sierra. All goals were met and the project was well within budget and time requirements.
