Optigo Networks is Atlanta-bound for AHR Expo 2019

Optigo Networks is off to AHR Expo 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia
Join us at the world’s largest HVACR exhibition, this year in Georgia

Optigo Networks is off to Atlanta, Georgia for this year’s AHR Expo, January 14–16! AHR is the world’s largest Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVACR) marketplace, with tens of thousands of industry professionals attending every year. We’ll be highlighting our cornerstone products and announcing new releases at the exhibition.

Optigo Connect, our family of innovative networking hardware and software products, bridges the gap between IT and Operational Technology (OT). The Optigo Connect solution makes it simple to connect thousands of smart devices up to 12.5 miles apart with a fraction of the infrastructure of traditional hardware. We’ll be announcing new developments that make Optigo Connect available to buildings of any size at the expo — stay tuned!

Visual BACnet Site Monitoring, our powerful diagnostics platform, allows you to track your network’s health and prevent problems. Paired with our unique Visual BACnet Capture Tools for IP and MS/TP, you can effortlessly monitor every level of your network. At AHR, we’ll be demoing Visual BACnet and sharing key case studies from the past year. Be sure to come visit and learn more about our monitoring solutions.

We are also nominated for several ControlTrends Awards this year, including IoT Product or Solution of the Year (Optigo), ControlTrends Executive of the Year – Small Manufacturer (Pook-Ping Yao, Optigo), Smart Buildings Analytic Platform of the Year (Visual BACnet), and Best Technical Support Person – Small Manufacturer (Daniel Tan, Optigo). We’d be honoured if you voted for Optigo Networks in these categories — submit your ballot here!

If you are attending AHR, please stop by booth C5136 to learn more about Visual BACnet and Optigo Connect. You can view our profile and add us to the list of booths you plan to visit, on the AHR website. We’ll announce some exciting new innovations at the expo, so be sure to follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter to stay up to date, as well.

Data center expansion with OTI and Optigo Connect

DATA CENTER EXPANSION

Stack Infrastructure is a portfolio of hyperscale computing data centers. OTI completed work on Phases I and II, and returned for the Phase III build-out of a 4-megawatt data hall and brand new central plant. The Optigo Connect network put in place in Phases I and II was expanded on this project. The team achieved quick roll-out of a large, multi-service redundant network using the Optigo OneView management interface. Going forward, the facility management team can use OneView to remotely monitor equipment, manage power usage, and meet up-time goals.

Because this was happening on the MS/TP network, pinpointing the problem would mean boots on the ground to segment and test the chain, piece by piece.
