Q4 Launches Cloud-Based Telemetrics PlatformMarch 6, 2012
The application addresses challenges facing the oil and gas industry by enabling remote measurements, real-time analytics, and multiple sensor support.
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL /Marketwire/ -- Quadrant4 Systems Corp. (Q4) announced that it has launched its oil and gas practice with specific focus on telemetrics.
Q4's cloud-based telemetrics platform addresses challenges in the areas of oil tanks and storage, oil flow, and oil transportation. The functionalities include remote measurement (the ability to measure readings remotely without physical inspection), real-time analytics (a cloud-based dashboard for real-time analytics from a remote location), multiple sensor support (flow and level sensors for a breadth of applications), and application diversity (measurement of flow and levels in pipelines, storage tanks, and vehicles). The real-time measurement of fuel levels has huge economic value in terms of accurate payments to vendors, theft and environment losses, and potential leakage in remote and unmonitored pipelines/storage facilities.
The application uses extensive open source technologies, including Linux, Pentaho, and Hadoop; runs on an Amazon EC2 cloud platform, and can be deployed on smart mobile devices that run on Android and BlackBerry operating systems.
Dhru Desai, Chairman of the Board of Q4, stated "As oil and gas prices increase, any technology and/or device that delivers either cost savings or cost avoidance is very welcome to the oil and gas industry. The industry typically operates unmanned oil rigs that continuously pump crude from remote wells and can't afford potential leaks that will lead to environmental disaster and huge loss of goodwill. Cloud-based monitoring from a central location will allow real-time response to such disasters and will deliver unprecedented ROI to the industry."
