Quantum Case Study
Quantum specializes in delivering professional engineering and automation control system services for the industrial and commercial manufacturing facilities. The company offers consulting, engineering solutions, inspection services, instrumentation and controls (I&C), SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) applications, and various automated programming. For this specific project, a municipality operates an 11-mile pipeline, which crosses two other cities to deliver water to a treatment facility. Four pump station RTU cabinets sit along the pipeline, controlling and monitoring the flow of water. Inconsistent and unreliable communication made it almost impossible to control the four pump stations remotely. Quantum consulted with the city and recommended that the town move to a 4G LTE cellular network to communicate.
