Edge2Cloud allows users of the FIN Framework to easily access building data, and service and upgrade FIN-based building automation systems remotely and securely. Until now, this has required IT support, including the use of a VPN connection, or having to visit site, using up valuable time and resources.
FIN Framework is the most innovative and advanced software platform for building automation and IoT applications.
Edge2Cloud is currently available as early access release to selected OEM partners, with full release this summer.
According to Gartner, building automation is predicted to have the largest annual growth rate in 2020 in IoT devices. The need for easy and secure access to building and site data is more significant than ever. The solution?
Edge2Cloud technology for FIN Framework that provides:
Until Edge2Cloud, multi-site building operators have had to rely on VPNs to secure access to sites remotely or resort to using 3/4G mobile data connections with an APN to avoid the often tortuous negotiations with IT departments to allow the opening of various ports in the firewalls to facilitate remote access.
Edge2Cloud features state-of-the-art authentication and encryption (to TLS 1.2) using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Now a user can log-in to the cloud service from a browser anywhere in the world to access all the connected sites securely.
Edge2Cloud can be connected and integrated with other cloud platforms via an open API framework based on Haystack 4.0.
FIN "pushes" the data connection for the site to cloud, using the Haystack standard as the protocol, which is optimized for efficient remote connectivity.
Edge2Cloud can be deployed across multiple sites within minutes with a plug'n'play set up via an optional QR code - all you need is an internet connection.
An advanced user & device management portal provides comprehensive user management, with exact control over access permissions, enabling large multi-site organizations to determine the appropriate level of access for maintenance subcontractors and other user groups.
Edge2Cloud is fully scalable to hundreds of thousands of sites for remote access from any browser.
