Echelon Corporation announced the signing of a value added reseller agreement with Allied Telesis, Inc. Under the terms of the global agreement, Allied Telesis will be authorized to incorporate Echelon's intelligent lighting solutions into its smart city and smart campus projects, and Echelon's industry leading IoT products into Allied Telesis' projects requiring building automation and controls. Echelon's intelligent lighting solutions include the all-new LumInsight® 2 Cloud Central Management System, and LumInsight IoT Base Stations.
Echelon's industry leading Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions for building automation and controls include the just announced SmartServer IoT, the first edge server to incorporate the most common industrial device protocols. This allows existing and new networks of such devices to seamlessly connect to the cloud and make their data available for use by modern analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) engines. With Echelon's embedded architecture, customers can easily and cost-effectively embrace, extend and enhance existing IIoT installations to avoid costly 'rip and replace' projects.
