Tridium Inc. announced the total number of instances for the company’s Niagara Framework has surpassed 100,000 worldwide. Tridium achieved this milestone as a result of the steady growth in Niagara’s customer base and the adoption of the framework as both a development platform and as an application solution. The Niagara Framework integrates diverse systems and devices regardless of manufacturer, or communication protocol into a unified platform that is easily managed and controlled over the Internet using a standard web browser. Manufacturers adopt the Niagara platform to develop Internet-enabled equipment systems, smart devices and device-to-enterprise solutions. In doing so, they reduce development time and costs, build new service offerings, and open up new business opportunities.
