Optigo pioneers the Edge-to-Cloud network with Visual BACnet Capture Tools

Groundbreaking innovation gives visibility across the network for centralized, cloud-based management

April 4, 2018, Vancouver, BC – The future of centralized, Edge-to-Cloud systems has arrived. Optigo Networks is happy to announce an exciting new suite of Capture Tools, for complete network visibility from server to MS/TP. The sophisticated Visual BACnet Capture Tools collect network data at the edge and push it to the Visual BACnet cloud, our advanced visualization platform for building automation system service providers.

“We’re proud to forge a new future of Edge-to-Cloud networking,” says Dan Ronald, VP Product Management at Optigo Networks. “Visibility and simplicity are core to the Optigo Networks vision. Our Visual BACnet Capture Tools put that value at the forefront, with streamlined monitoring and centralized management.”

This suite of Visual BACnet Capture Tools for Windows, IP, and MS/TP will revolutionize the monitored network. Our tool for Windows captures from the server for full network visibility, while the IP and MS/TP tools install right at the network source, on the RS485 or IP router.

The line of Capture Tools features the ability to schedule captures, which automatically upload to the Visual BACnet cloud. The analytics engine quickly identifies common problems and anomalous behaviour in the BACnet infrastructure. Email notifications alert users as soon as the network health drops below a certain threshold or changes by a certain amount. Users can then drill down and analyze data, with the platform’s robust diagnostic checks.

With the innovative Visual BACnet Capture Tools, there’s no need to “troubleshoot”: no more clambering around in ceiling tiles, hunting for issues in the MS/TP chain; no more wading through data or filtering in Wireshark. Instead, users can schedule hourly, daily, or weekly captures right from their computer to get a regular read on network health.

With the Visual BACnet Capture Tools, Optigo Networks is ushering in a new age of Edge-to-Cloud simplicity and centralized network monitoring.

BUENO SYSTEMS

Energy analytics company BUENO Systems was working on a mall when the worst happened. The network failed and equipment failed to “ON,” which kept units running 24 hours a day. As it turns out, the mall’s network was overloaded and glitching before BUENO even deployed. It had been for a while. These latent issues were a ticking time bomb and would have resulted in a failure if any new devices were added to the network. Because it was BUENO’s device, though, they had to fix it. The only way to fix it was out of pocket.
