Customers who choose to take advantage of the pre-built integration between FieldServer products and the FieldPoP device cloud have a choice of “Freemium” options. Basic connectivity to the cloud over the Internet and the ability to remotely run the standard web user interface available on the FieldServer products are part of the standard package. Value-added “fog applications” that run on the FieldServer products such as a dashboard view of field devices and data, trend logs, control logic applications, data uploads to the cloud for long-term analysis, and real-time alerts and notifications to authorized personnel are offered as premium features.
“BACnet has emerged as the leading protocol used in building and facility automation,” said David Nardonne, Membership Manager at BACnet International, an industry association that facilitates the successful use of the BACnet protocol in building automation and control systems through interoperability testing, educational programs and promotional activities. “The ability to securely and seamlessly bridge BACnet-based facility networks to the cloud is a significant addition to the BACnet toolkit.”
“This announcement underscores our commitment to be one of the leaders in bridging Operational Technology (OT) with Information Technology (IT),” said Varun Nagaraj, CEO of Sierra Monitor. “The FieldServer protocol translation gateway has long been a leader in the building and industrial automation markets. Now, with the pre-integration of FieldServer gateways, routers and explorers with the FieldPoP device cloud, we have made it extremely easy for our customers to take advantage of the cloud and the IIoT opportunity.”
