Tibbo AggreGate 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. The AggreGate saves costs and simplifies setup when trying to create a large network of devices and computers which are spread over a wide-area network (WAN) or the Internet. It introduces new concepts in M2M (Machine-2-Machine) technology, also known as Industrial Control or SCADA.
In a complex WAN environment your devices may be distributed over multiple network segments, located behind firewalls, routers, bridges, etc. The core part of AggreGate, called AggreGate Server, solves the problem of communication between devices installed within various protected local networks and networks with dynamic addressing by acting as a middle-man. 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. AggreGate provides two user interfaces: a graphical, cross-platform client application and a web interface. Both can be used for system administration and normal operation activities.
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 programmable hardware modules (Agents), or by protocol conversion via software device drivers.
When designing a new device from scratch, you could include Agent right into your original design. This would allow your device to act autonomously even when the central server is not available. Being a hardware manufacturer, Tibbo has vast experience of creating custom solutions for different types of devices - we can help.
AggreGate provides industry-specific solutions for many vertical markets: Network Management, SCADA/HMI, Time and Attendance, Access Control, Building Automation, Fleet Management, Vending Machines, Remote Monitoring, and more.
