ABOUT THIS EVENT

Juniper Networks, in collaboration with Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories ( SEL Inc.) and Dragos Inc., announced the Converged Industrial Edge; a communications architecture designed to reduce cybersecurity risk, lower operational expense and enhance situational awareness for utilities and other industrial markets. The Converged Industrial Edge takes a “clean sheet of paper” approach to applying modern, cloud-native technologies with proven stability, resilience, determinism and intelligence to reduce complexity and engineer simplicity.

During this webinar you’ll see a demonstration of how the Converged Industrial Edge architecture can:

  • Unify critical infrastructure communications:Unified communications for critical infrastructure has landed on Ethernet. See how this solution can safely deploy IT & OT applications and services with inherently safe change management; with requirements from all stakeholders met, with no compromises.
  • Simplify and Secure: We’ll demonstrate how automation can be employed to create, test and validate the creation of OT circuits within minutes. See how ephemeral communications for engineering access can be created and torn down safely; supporting compliance and decreasing cybersecurity attack surface.
  • Reduce Operational Costs and Cyber risk: See how a prescriptively engineered networks results in less truck rolls and accelerates deployment of new services, while providing significant improvements in cyber and physical situational awareness.

UTC Members: FREE • Non-Members: $200

PRESENTERS:

Jedidiah Bartlett Principal Engineer - Automation, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories Inc.

Jedidiah Bartlett has worked in a diverse range of fields surrounding process control and automation for Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories; starting with an internship in the Engineering Services group working in the protection engineering, as a core member of the SEL PowerMAX development team, and in defining the next generation of SEL Engineering Services’ PowerMAX brand in the Automation R&D division today. Jedidiah’s mission is to incorporate field experience into the SEL automation product line to better serve the quickly shifting industry needs for wide-area monitoring and control solutions. Jedidiah has been awarded patents for novel approaches to computing the state of the power-system, driven the development of several new product enhancements surrounding the SEL RTAC and Horizon product lines, and is actively involved in co-inventing the grid of the future with industry partners as a product platform architect.

Josh Gerber: CEO, 33 North Energy

Josh Gerber is an expert in battery storage and distributed energy resources and founded 33 North Energy (consulting) and Connect California (single premise microgrid systems) after a career at San Diego Gas & Electric. At SDG&E most recently he managed the Advanced Technologies Team where he led the development and deployment of their 120 & 30 megawatt-hour (MWh) lithium-ion energy storage systems -- setting a new standard for the speed and size of battery projects. His knowledge of cutting-edge energy policy, business and technology issues helped the project to receive regulatory approval and deploy in record time - less than eight months - and in December 2017 the storage facility was named by Utility Dive as Energy Storage Project of the Year
