Installing LAN connections at remote sites is a significant cost - but you can spread it over several budget cycles through LAN migration. Here is how you can do it gradually over time without breaking your budget all at once.

Step One: Install a LAN + Dial-Up/Serial RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit)

First, install an RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit) that supports both LAN and your existing dial-up or serial transport, like the NetGuardian 832A G5.

Step Two: Install a LAN Connection

When it fits into your budget, install a LAN connection at the remote site. The same NetGuardian unit can be immediately switched to reporting over LAN with minimal configuration - and you do not have to rewire any alarms.

You can gradually migrate different sections of your network to LAN, as your budget and installation manpower allows.

Benefits of LAN Migration

• Installation costs are spread over several budget cycles.

• Buy just one RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit) for both LAN and legacy transport.

• Deploy SCADA NOW at all your locations.
