Fabrico Case Study
ABB supplies transformer components to a broad range of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The company maintains an inventory of several hundred different products that require voltage labeling in five sizes. These range from 5 1/2” x 2 1/2” to 3” x 2 1/2”. Material requirements specify a polyester face stock with Tedlar overlam with an acrylic adhesive. This is necessary for good bonding, since most of the labels are being applied to epoxy and ceramic- coated surfaces.

ABB Brazil Saved 30% on Testing Time Thanks to Panaya Test Center
The stakes are high for ABB Brazil, an organization with five business divisions. Brazil has one of the most complicated tax systems in the world and SAP system errors can cause big losses for the company. Each release of new functionality is very risky, hence ABB Brazil faces huge testing challenges.Complex business scenarios with little or no documentation available.Several system changes (new functionalities, improvements, and bug fixing) being released every week which requires a huge effort to execute regression tests.The major challenge during the UAT is to keep track of all activities, spread across multiple areas/ locations and keep everything under control.

Wireless Mesh Routers
Wireless Mesh Routers
TropOS 1410 wireless mesh routers are used to build field area networks for automation applications. They enable cost-effective and highly secure IP communications for utility, mining, oil and gas, and industrial applications that monitor and control field automation endpoints such as intelligent electrical devices, industrial process controllers and SCADA devices. Integrated firewalls and VPNs plus DNP3 over serial and Ethernet support provide enterprise-class security and future-ready operation to legacy automation devices installed in the field.Upstream oil and gas, utilities, mining and process control, as well as other industries are increasingly using wireless communications networks to monitor and control thousands of automation devices in the field. These field area networks support a diverse set of applications including automated metering infrastructure and distribution automation for utilities; telemetry and mining management systems for mining; wellhead monitoring and logging for oil and gas; traffic signal management and video monitoring for transportation; process control for refining and chemicals; and SCADA for a variety of industries. In the past, utilities and other industrial companies have often used proprietary low-speed wireless communications systems with little security to implement their field area networks.The TropOS 1410 provides an economical vehicle for utilities and other industrial companies to securely implement field automation communication. It delivers the most advanced set of standards-based security features available for field area networks including a built-in firewall and a built-in IPsec VPN in every unit. Each TropOS 1410 implements a multi-layer, multi-application security model that provides defense-in-depth and enables traffic from different applications and user groups to be segregated on separate virtual local area networks (VLANs). Each VLAN has its own address space, quality of service policies and security policies including the ability to create one or more IPsec VPNs per VLAN. The TropOS 1410 employs RADIUS, 802.1x, and 802.11i authentication, AES encryption and HTTPS-based remote access to secure field area networks from unauthorized devices, users and snooping. In addition, the product family’s operating software provides the technical controls required to achieve NERC CIP v5 compliance.
Broadband Mesh Routers
Broadband Mesh Routers
The TropOS 7320 outdoor mesh router is a full-feature wireless networking platform that delivers high performance in outdoor environments.Architected to provide maximum flexibility and configurability, the router delivers significant performance increases through support for a next-generation high-sensitivity radio design and the incorporation of patented features of the industry-leading TropOS Mesh OS.A high-capacity solution capable of simultaneous support for multiple network applications, the TropOS 7320 router is designed to meet the demanding needs of upstream oil and gas, utilities, mining and industrial control systems. The platform provides a reliable communications foundation for deploying multiple, concurrent mission critical applications. The TropOS 7320 can either serve as a gateway interface for capacity injection into the network or as a node to extend or reinforce network connectivity. Designed for creating or expanding higher-capacity networks, the TropOS 7320 router is a dual-band unit with one 2.4 GHz and one 5 GHz radio that supports meshing and client connectivity at both frequencies. The platform provides superior performance and resiliency, and enables the network to be scaled to the highest-capacity configurations through deployment of additional TropOS routers. The high-capacity unit has two Ethernet ports that can be used to inject capacity into the network and attach client devices such as video cameras or AMI collectors. The Ethernet ports can power devices via Power over Ethernet (PoE).
