Rigado and Microsoft Azure Use IoT Edge-as-a-Service for Smart Buildings

By

In a recent release, Rigado, a provider of Commercial IoT Edge-as-a-Service solutions, announced it has integrated its IoT edge infrastructure with Microsoft Azure Digital Twins to support deployment of Smart Workplace solutions for commercial real estate operators to offer enhanced employee experiences and efficacy in the workplace. The joint solution reportedly is already providing IoT data in technically advanced buildings like the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco.

“Smart buildings hold a lot of promise. By bringing multiple siloed systems under a single IoT platform, operators will be able to increase building efficiency, provide an optimized employee environment, cut operating costs and increase the quality of life for tenants," said Ben Corrado, CEO, Rigado. “Yet, creating an infrastructure that supports these smart strategies can be a challenge. That's why we're excited to provide the IoT edge infrastructure in the Azure ecosystem that makes it quicker and easier for organizations to create IoT based services -- and business value -- for their customers.”

Microsoft Azure Digital Twins is a new service from the company that enables IoT service and solution providers to build custom applications for smart buildings and smart spaces. Rigado Cascade feeds into Azure Digital Twins providing connectivity to a wide variety of sensors and building systems. It also provides a secure and scalable edge computing platform at Commercial IoT scale. In addition to smart buildings like Salesforce Tower, Rigado Cascade integration with Azure Digital Twins solutions can support a range of use cases, including smart hospitals, sporting venues, retail, and warehouses.

“By connecting Rigado's intelligent edge to Azure Digital Twins, companies can quickly develop and deploy next generation IoT solutions,” said Bert Van Hoof, Group Program Manager, Azure IoT, Microsoft. “Through the ‘digital twin’ - a virtual model of people, spaces and devices, organizations can start to track, optimize, simulate and predict. Easy to create, scale and manage, these solutions will help organizations analyze how their space is used and optimize it to better serve people’s needs at every level—from energy efficiency to employee satisfaction and productivity.”

Rigado Cascade is designed to empower the smart building manufacturer and integrator to quickly develop and deploy highly scalable architectures. Cascade Edge-as-a-Service is a secure edge computing platform that is tailored to Smart Building solutions that require local control and edge data processing.
