PALO ALTO, Calif. - Frost & Sullivan has selected Tridium Inc. as the recipient of the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Industry Innovation & Advancement of the Year Award in the North American building automation systems market.

According to Frost & Sullivan, Tridium’s open-systems protocol framework integration gives manufacturers a universal platform in which they can develop Internet-enabled equipment systems and device-to-enterprise applications. The capacity of Tridium’s Niagara Framework® has enabled the company to serve customer segments beyond traditional building control. These include telecommunications, medical equipment, industrial, and the security controls platform.

“Niagara Framework integrates diverse systems and devices, regardless of manufacturer or communication protocol, into a unified platform that can be easily managed and controlled in real-time using a standard Web browser,” said Jorge Moreno, Frost & Sullivan research analyst. “This framework is an extensible platform that supports the rapid development of a wide range of device-to-enterprise applications and provides many benefits in a variety of customer applications.”

Niagara Framework's integration software enables building managers to track and collect energy information to generate energy savings, improve efficiency, and monitor the condition of equipment. Tridium also has the added benefit of being able to integrate this data with a facility’s existing enterprise application, using various accepted Internet and Web service standards.

To enable the security extension to its Niagara Framework, Tridium recently launched its Vykon Security platform, which helps authorized personnel manage access rights and schedules, time and attendance, and alarm response in real-time through a standard Web browser. Since this physical security system is based on an open-systems protocol, it helps reduce costs by allowing remote maintenance and troubleshooting, reduces installation time, requires less training and is completely scalable.

To further enhance the Niagara Framework, Tridium has incorporated oBIX, which is a new standard in Web-based service technology and it uses widely accepted IP Internet protocols.
