Energy and Utilities
Energy and utility providers have relied on Industrial Control Systems (ICS) to connect and control everything from power generation, transmission and distribution networks, oil and gas pipelines, water treatment plants, and transportation networks. The move to broader IT connectivity and intelligent infrastructure has expanded attack surface vectors and cyberthreats for these systems and networks.
Critical infrastructure industries like energy and utilities are driving intelligence to the distributed edge network, where rich data sources can generate insights to improve cybersecurity posture and operations, boost system availability, and lower costs. Whether converging single-purpose industrial and Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems onto common network platforms, deploying new monitoring and processing edge applications, or converging IT and operational technology (OT) systems, we can help with your digital transformation.
How Juniper can help
Converged Industrial Edge
A multivendor solution architecture for IT-OT convergence empowers utilities to increase business agility, assure resilient network services, and lower capital and operational costs.
Electric, gas, and water utilities rely on OT networks to support ICS essential to their businesses. Historically, OT/ICS systems have been developed, implemented, and managed independent of IT networks. But as pressure on budgets mounts and business cases for modernizing the grid edge multiply, utilities providers must reevaluate options for converging and modernizing their communications infrastructure. Through our resilient hardware, software, pervasive security, and utilities-specific automation, we can help you ensure that safety and reliability are never compromised.
Oil and gas
Data-driven insights for upstream, midstream, and downstream operations can deliver better outcomes for your business, like reduced equipment failures, improved worker safety, and increased performance. Deploying distributed applications at the edge requires scalable, high-performance networks that provide connected security and segmentation in multi-cloud environments. Juniper’s architecture for the next decade advances automation, increases cybersecurity, helps ensure regulatory compliance, lowers TCO, and elevates the user experience, from client to cloud.
Wind and solar
We support the worldwide transition to renewable energy resources through our corporate governance, technology investments, products, and solutions. Our network and security solutions support edge applications ranging from demand response and distributed automation for utilities, to acoustic sensors data reduction in wind turbines. By extending our security, automation, AI, and machine learning (ML) to renewable power resources at the distributed edge, we’re helping to accelerate the energy transition.
Providing Secure, Any-Device Access to Utility-Scale Wind Turbines
One Energy wanted to protect its wind turbines from cyberthreats while providing staff and clients with secure access to the turbines from any device, anywhere.
Based in Ohio, One Energy installs utility-scale wind turbines and manages some of the largest, high-profile wind projects in the world. The energy provider prides itself on minimizing risk and ensuring that projects are fully auditable for its customers.
