Peter has been designing and building SCADA systems for 40 years and formed Streamline in 2011 to assist companies in bridging the gap between their OT and IT environments. Having been involved in over 20 SCADA systems over the years using standard poll/response architectures, Peter headed up a team in 2015 to embark on building a new large-scale middleware-based SCADA system with a Calgary-based midstream company. This multi-year project built an architecture based on MQTT and provides a framework for enabling data sharing throughout the organization by making previously orphaned data available.
The successfully completed first phase provides the midstream operations group with an efficient, reliable and highly available communications infrastructure with subsequent phases tying corporate applications into the middleware framework. This architecture will provide the midstream companies with the ability to easily add smart devices, utilize analytical tools effectively in addition to other applications as the IIOT wave continues to build momentum.
Streamline’s team of experts provide companies with a range of expertise throughout a SCADA system’s lifecycle from architectural design, configuration, testing and cutover. Additional skill sets within the team include communications infrastructure design, regulatory compliance, site surveys and documentation.
