Kepware Technologies, a software development company focused on communications for automation, today announced that its CEO, Tony Paine, and Product Manager, Stephen Sponseller, have each been selected to lead key presentations at the upcoming ENTELEC Spring Conference & Expo in Houston, Texas:


  • Tony Paine will present "Leveraging OPC UA to Help Meet Site Security Requirements," on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 3:30 p.m. CDT
  • Steve Sponseller will present "A New Distributed Architecture for Remote Communications," on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. CDT

Paine's educational session will provide attendees with a framework for understanding how leveraging the OPC UA standard and role-based permissions can help the Oil & Gas Industry meet increasingly stringent security standards. Sponseller's presentation will highlight the variety of ways a Distributed Communications Architecture attends to bandwidth, cost, and security concerns that the current Host-Centric Model is unable to adequately address.

"It's an honor to have been invited by ENTELEC to present at the spring show on what we truly see as key issues for the industry moving forward," said Paine. "Kepware puts a great deal of effort into developing our software, to ensure customers in the Oil & Gas Industry have great experiences with our technologies. ENTELEC is an ideal opportunity to both learn from and contribute to this key industry."
