Ultra Electronics demonstrates a cyber-hardened critical infrastructure management system following collaboration with PowerOasis



SmartGrid Technology & Innovation, London, September 2015 - At this key event attended by industry visionaries, Ultra demonstrated their cyber secure, intelligent management solution.


At the event, Ultra Electronics and PowerOasis, demonstrated how cyber secure, intelligent remote management can be added to critical national infrastructure, to improve site management and performance while reducing operating costs without the need to replace legacy equipment.


The solution combines Ultra Electronics' military grade endpoint security with PowerOasis' expertise in infrastructure management and control.

The solution, which is available from today, incorporates the following capabilities:


·     Remote monitoring and control of multi-vendor multi interface legacy equipment environments supported by a sophisticated network operations center application and network level big-data analytics
