Enterprise Internet of Things™
The Internet of things (IoT) is all about connected devices – connecting objects such as streetlights, thermostats, security cameras and other physical devices to Internet. Using a combination of sensors, wireless network, and intelligent software, IoT systems collect data, process information, (for visualization or analytics) and take action to actuate or control end devices. The end result is increased productivity, efficient operation and tremendous cost savings.
Daintree Networks is accelerating the smart building innovation with ControlScope® Enterprise Internet of Things (E-IoT™) solution. The innovative E-IoT solution consists of three layers:
- Software for easy commissioning, centralized management and data analytics
- Wireless mesh network to provide local and networked controls, monitoring, and management
- End point devices that are from a large set of vendors and are platform independent due to open standards driven interoperability of the platform
This architecture ensures a solution that is scalable, easy to deploy, and easy to use and offers interoperability to help customers future-proof their facility and IoT infrastructure.
ControlScope is the only solution available that can truly deliver the promise of Enterprise IoT and meet today’s operational technology (OT) needs, while being able to deliver Enterprise IoT requirements over time. It has the right architecture for delivering most enterprise requirements for IoT while leveraging technology that ensures ongoing and broader access to devices that will continue to lower in cost.
Enterprise IoT System Requirements
- Operate across multiple building types and spaces: The underlying technology must be capable of being deployed across all building types and spaces. This may include large or small commercial office buildings, warehouses, or retail locations, across a handful or many thousands of such buildings.
- Enterprise connectivity: The IoT network infrastructure must be sufficiently pervasive in and around the building to ensure that devices can be added easily, both during initial deployment, and later, during expansion without requiring significant support.
- Reliable and resilient: Some IoT and many OT applications require the system to be able to work under harsh environments without failure, and be resilient to failure conditions.
- Integration with enterprise systems: One of the key values of IoT is the ability to provide the wealth of data to be processed by other enterprise systems. Common interfaces, such as REST/JSON or XML must be supported by IoT systems to ensure that the data they collect can be made available to enterprise software.
- Future proof: IoT systems using open standards, with broad industry-support can deliver a wide variety of products today. In addition to offering choice, broad adoption also drives down cost.
- Cost-effective: A single system that delivers on OT as well as a number of IoT requirements for business operations will be much cheaper to deploy and to operate, due to its leverage. An IoT system’s ability to meet multiple enterprise requirements will result in reduced cost, both upfront and on an ongoing basis.
