Niagara 4 Update: Beta Testing in Mix of Sites


Feb. 23, 2015 — The upcoming version of the Niagara Framework, Niagara 4, is being beta tested in a wide variety of live production environments, says Nino DiCosmo, president and general manager of Tridium.

The beta sites reflect a mix of users, both in the types of sites, from a multi-building campus to remote sites, and in the types of users, include end-users, system integrators, and OEMs, says DiCosmo.

Niagara 4 will offer a range of improvements, including:

• A dynamically created user interface across all form factors

• Easier navigation

• Improved security

• Enhanced performance and scalability

• Advanced search

The interest in the upcoming version of the Niagara Framework, Niagara 4, was evident from the number of organizations that inquired about becoming beta sites. There were nearly 300 applications for beta sites, says Jenny Graves, vice president of marketing communications for Tridium.

Tridium is the global leader in open platforms, application software frameworks, automation infrastructure technology, energy management, and device-to-enterprise integration solutions.

The Niagara Framework is a software platform that integrates diverse systems and devices regardless of manufacturer or communication protocol into a unified platform that, with standard IT network security measures in place, can be easily managed and controlled in real time over the Internet using a standard web browser.

By integrating today's diverse building systems such as environmental controls, security, lighting, energy, video, fire and life safety, Niagara is creating better buildings — ones that are smarter, use less energy, are more efficient, have lower operating costs, are safer, and contribute to a sustainable environment.
