North West Redwater (NWR) intended to build, manage and operate a new bitumen refinery. The new refinery was being built across six square kilometers and would include over 100 contracting companies participating in the construction phase of the project. NWR wanted to provide connectivity to the 100 contracting companies over a dispersed remote area in order to simplify the contractor onboarding process, decrease operating costs, and control the project schedule.

Universal Platform - A centralized communication platform that provides safety, security and project continuity was enabled to provide connectivity to each contracting company.
Status Alert - Alerts for dangerous weather and other problems are sent to all devices in the field during emergencies, improving worker safety and minimizing distruption to operations.
The Cisco and Redline network solutions eliminated lost connectivity cost upwards of $50,000 per day.
Hardware
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
