Many businesses operate and monitor their manufacturing and information systems
in real-time and semi-real-time. Some of businesses have their facilities
widely distributed. It is difficult for a small or median sized business to
justify a traditional SCADA system because it is sometimes costly to maintain.
SCADA systems with traditional architectures may have the following
Expensive to own and maintain
Long lead times for deployment
Obsolete or semi-obsolete in a short time period
No in-house expertise to maintain the technology
Technology is maintenance intensive
Need to have a vendor involved in maintenance and support
WebSCADA solutions combine Internet, communication, and RTU technologies to
