The challenge for operators
A control room’s primary purpose is to provide and monitor all required information so that decisions and actions can be made in response to specific circumstances.
Now found in a broad range of sectors ranging from meteorological centers to defence, from transport hubs to mineral mines, the control room solution has become so prevalent that the subject warrants its own Wiki page.
However, as good as the control room is – be it in the design or the technology used – it is the operators who determine how efficient operations inside, and outside, the control room are in times of need. Empowering these operators with instant information-sharing tools is critical to ensuring decisions and actions are made as soon as possible to minimize and manage risk to resources, security and, potentially, life itself.
Today’s control rooms bring content to the operator like never before. It is not uncommon for information sources to be in the hundreds – with camera feeds, websites, satellite TV and bespoke software all requiring real-time monitoring and control for smooth operations and swift decision making in times of crises.
It is typical for control room operators to be assigned responsibility for a specific task in the organization – monitoring drilling procedures on an off-shore oil platform, for example – where operators need all relevant data and information on ‘their area’, as well as an overview of information related to the running of the operation on a shared video wall.

Bringing remote access closer
Critical for successful control room deployments, security has been a key focus for Aetria throughout its development. With fully integrated user rights management, administrators are given fine-grained control of access to all Aetria assets. All connections between connected devices are secured with enterprise grade AES encryption, and all user and API connections use TLS encryption.
