is the company that devolped the NiagaraAX universal framework
which allows you to solve the challenges associated
with managing different system protocols under one
web based platform. Tridium's
core technology Niagara is Java-based and
provides a software interface that allows you to combine multiple
devices into a unified platform that can be easily managed in real time
over a local TCP/IP connection or the internet using a standard web
Niagara technology has been applied to energy services,
security card access, building automation and the industrial automation
NiagaraAX is a software framework and development
environment that solves the challenges associated with building
Internet-enabled products, device-to-enterprise applications and
distributed Internet-enabled automation systems.
NiagaraAX takes that concept to the next level.
The core concept of Niagara is its unique, patented component model that
transforms the data from diverse external systems into uniform software
components. These components form the foundation for building
applications to manage and control the devices. In Niagara R2, the
component model focused primarily on modeling data from the various
systems to create a uniform data set for applications.
model goes beyond unifying protocols and data from diverse systems, to
unify the entire development environment used to build applications. The concept of a
software framework that could normalize the data and behavior of diverse
devices, regardless of manufacturer or communication protocol, to
enable the implementation of seamless, Internet-connected, web-based
Providing open APIs to all system services and an extensible component
model that enable partners to develop their own applications, plug-ins
and drivers independent of Tridium;
The key requirements that guided the development of NiagaraAX included:
Creating a uniform software environment and component model across all
layers of the device-to-enterprise solution stack. This means that
whether you are building a small controller or a comprehensive
enterprise application, with NiagaraAX , developers work in the same programming environment with the same tools;
Providing all-inclusive support for web-services data handling and communications with enterprise applications;
Enabling large system scalability and a distributed processing architecture over any Internet, Intranet or Wireless network.
NiagaraAX provides the environment, tools and services to enable partners to develop products and applications quickly and easily.
