AggreGate Device Management Platform
Aggregate device management platform is a complete device management solution that employs modern network technologies to control, configure and monitor different electronic devices. It also helps you to aggregate device data into a common database, where you can 'slice and dice' it according to your needs, as well as let other enterprise applications transparently access it.
Aggregate introduces new concepts in m2m (machine-2-machine) technology, also known as industrial control or scada. In a complex network environment your devices may be distributed over multiple segments, located behind firewalls, routers, bridges, etc.
Aggregate server provides a rich set of features for managing device networks and routing data. The core components are java-based and may be deployed on most present-day hardware and operating systems. Connecting your devices to the system is easy and cost-effective.
Any existing device may work with aggregate regardless of its communication protocol even if it s not network-enabled. You can bridge your existing devices into the system using a programmable controller, by implementing aggregate communication protocol in your own device, or by protocol conversion via software device drivers.
For new designs, the programmable controller can be built directly into the product. Devices that use standard automation, control and monitoring protocols (such as opc, modbus, bacnet, snmp, etc. ) are supported directly, no software/hardware protocol conversion is required.
Aggregate helps many different industries and companies to benefit from direct management of large networks of legacy devices or connecting them to the enterprise systems based on open standards. Typical solutions include network monitoring, data center management, industrial and home automation, machinery, telecommunications, security and access control, time and attendance control, medical devices, laboratory equipment, life sciences, retail, transportation, etc.
