Bringing information from a building to a network management software and leveraging existing monitoring solutions are crucial for a data-driven strategy. It creates a better understanding of the overall status and a comprehensive view of multiple infrastructures inside a site. Power and cooling devices, such as energy meters, DC system controllers, UPS, CRACs, building automation systems, fuel systems, ATS and genset controller systems, provide vital data to building operators that needs to be easily accessible and thorough.

Multitel’s iO Gateway is a secure device that transports data, ensures communication with serial-based and smart devices, provides visibility throughout a site and improves network security. The iO Gateway is a comprehensive solution that has been designed to deal with today’s reality of fast-moving technologies. It allows users to keep their existing monitoring solutions and, at the same time, benefit from the latest technologies to maintain complete visibility on their devices.

Furthermore, users can improve IT security by using secured protocols and reducing the number of IP address throughout the network. Having one IP address for multiple devices also reduce IT management time and effort. The iO Gateway streamlines data transport from the building to the network management software and leverages existing monitoring capabilities without any compromise.
