JEA compiled a list of IIoT use cases and business needs from electric generation, T&D, water, and wastewater and realized we needed a common approach for tackling similar needs from diverse business units, all running different Industrial Control Systems. FogLAMP provides a common framework for collecting the data and delivering it to PI and our analytics layer. This framework is open, standards-based and endorsed by the Linux Foundation. Alternatively, trying to integrate IIoT across multiple different proprietary DCS, PLC, and SCADA platforms was ominous and likely not even possible. FogLAMP offers a vendor-neutral alternative to the existing silos. JEA is taking an enterprise-wide approach to IOT and FogLAMP is a way to adopt a more modern standards-based and decoupled architecture for the future. Our first implementation monitors substation transformers and implements predictive maintenance using B100 IIoT devices connected to FogLAMP running in a Cisco 4000.
