A member of our deployment team, Antony Logoyskiy, has recently visited Sterling, DC for technical training to Triad Systems Engineering, our new partner in the US.
The one-week training and hands-on experience were dedicated to using AggreGate Platform and SCADA/HMI as an umbrella management system.
TSE engineers were quite impressed by AggreGate solution flexibility. The most excited part of training was dedicate to developing of visualization. TSE team mentioned the extremely comfortable, useful and easy tool for building widgets and dashboards. Almost all end-customer requests can be implemented in short time.
During this training session we connected all PLCs which are used in production to AggreGate Platform and built several widgets and dashboards for monitoring and management these PLCs.
On October 29, 2015, Tibbo will participate in "Conference. Expo. Meetup", Russia's most important event devoted entirely to the Internet of Everything technologies and the Internet of Things market.
According to the organizer, the event will provide an opportunity to learn the most interesting things about the IoT technology of this area, get acquainted with famous speakers, find out opinions of experts, make new business contacts, participate in informative workshops and socialize with colleagues to exchange valuable experience.
Coming AggreGate 5.3 will feature a long-waited Workflows module. Workflows are user-defined actions that combine server-side data processing operations and operator interaction steps (UI Procedures). The workflows module helps to define those actions by adding various steps that may depend to each other and benefit from conditional branching.
Workflows are ideal for configuring various incident resolution and debriefing patterns that will be interactively launched upon various alerts. Thus, workflows will be crucial for any AggreGate-based umbrella monitoring and management project, be it IT, automation or security infrastructure management.
A senior member of our development team, Daniel Baskakov, has recently visited sunny Barcelona for technical training to GTD, our new partner in the region. The two-week training and hands-on experience were dedicated to using AggreGate Platform and SCADA/HMI as an umbrella management system in the Port of Barcelona.
GTD engineers were quite impressed by AggreGate solution capabilities. The learning process was successful and real fun!
AggreGate technical training is normally conducted on-site and adopted to the needs of a specific project. Visit Training and Education website section for more details.
Tibbo has partnered with StarNet Alliance, an alliance of the largest IoT market participants in the Eurasian continent and developer of the first LPWA network within the territory of Russia, Belarus, Poland and Finland, with roaming in Spain, France, the Netherlands, the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, China and Philippines.
Tibbo is assumed to provide AggreGate as a technological platform for various projects in the Internet of Things domain tailored to LPWA. Low Power, Wire Area networks (LPWA) offer new opportunities for intelligent inter-machinery exchange keeping online presence costs as low as a few dollars per year.
We would like to congratulate Victor Polyakov, Tibbo's Product Director for the AggreGate Platform, with joining the Internet of Things Council. It is good chance to take part in different discussions and events taking place in the IoT world.
Tibbo office was recently visited by our new partner, Sputnik-Integration LLC. The visit aimed a week-long AggreGate technical training tailored to industrial automation projects such as oil derrick and oil terminal automation. Sputnik engineers were impressed by AggreGate SCADA's capabilities and very satisfied of the learning process.
Citing Mikael Puchnin, Head of Development Department: "AggreGate Platform is a non-typical system with rich functionality. Thus we've decided to study the product deeply and thoroughly. The system's completely met our expectations! It's a very flexible tool understanding various hardware pieces and software datasources. It allows to create scalable applications. We were really impressed by AggreGate solutions and will use the system for our projects."
As you probably know, AggreGate is typically used by VARs, SIs and OEMs for building reference solutions or even full-fledged derived products. Technically, each derived OEM solution is a set of plugins for:
Acquiring data from devices and data sources
Storing data on the server
Processing data in headless mode
Visualizing data via custom AggreGate-based operator UIs
Exposing data to third-party applications.
Many simple solutions only include server-side processing templates and parts of operator UI, such as widgets, maps, reports and dashboards. Such solutions acquire data via standard protocols and keep it in default storages, such as relational, NoSQL and RRDB databases.
We've recently posted a short article that describes how to package your custom processing and visualization tools into an AggreGate plugin. The article requires basic understanding of AggreGate Plugin SDK. Please check it here.
