Optigo Networks captures attention at AHR 2018

The Optigo team is back after a whirlwind trip to AHR 2018. At the show, we announced distribution partnerships with Cochrane Supply and Yorkland Controls, and promoted our cutting-edge new Capture Device.

We were thrilled to share our partnerships with Cochrane Supply and Yorkland Controls, for distribution of Optigo Connect across North America. Cochrane and Yorkland have a robust network of trusted partners and manufacturers, and we’re proud to join their offering of unique solutions.

Read our press release announcements with Cochrane Supply and Yorkland Controls.

We also generated buzz with our innovative new Capture Device for MS/TP networks. Anyone who has worked on MS/TP networks knows, they’re rampant with issues. Fixing those problems is a huge headache. You have to get boots on the ground, clamber around in ceiling tiles, and troubleshoot section after section of network.

To help, we developed a simple solution for automated captures. Our Capture Device easily installs on the network, allowing you to schedule and automatically upload MS/TP captures into Visual BACnet. The device comes complete with all necessary software and an MS/TP dongle, so you can sit back and let the captures roll in. From there, use Visual BACnet to troubleshoot and monitor the MS/TP chain.

Our MS/TP Capture Device is currently in beta testing. To learn more or join the waitlist for a Capture Device, contact sales@optigo.net.

Our thanks to the organizers of AHR Expo for another wonderful show! We look forward to seeing everyone again at AHR 2019.

Everyone’s growing more aware of the need for cybersecurity. There have been so many cyberattacks in recent years, it’s almost impossible to ignore. But there’s long been a view that cybersecurity is only an IT issue.

The Optigo Networks team is off to Nashville, Tennessee June 13–14 for Realcomm/IBcon, to promote our latest releases and projects.

Data center expansion with OTI and Optigo Connect


Stack Infrastructure is a portfolio of hyperscale computing data centers. OTI completed work on Phases I and II, and returned for the Phase III build-out of a 4-megawatt data hall and brand new central plant. The Optigo Connect network put in place in Phases I and II was expanded on this project. The team achieved quick roll-out of a large, multi-service redundant network using the Optigo OneView management interface. Going forward, the facility management team can use OneView to remotely monitor equipment, manage power usage, and meet up-time goals.

Penn State University Optigo Networks Visual BACnet


When Tom Walker looked at Penn State University’s Navy Yard network, he saw huge issues. The system was busy and loud, to the point where the overrun network was bringing down the entire building. Because this was happening on the MS/TP network, pinpointing the problem would mean boots on the ground to segment and test the chain, piece by piece.

Penn State University Optigo Networks Visual BACnet

Broadcast traffic was pushing 90,000 packets per hour. Walker was on the phone almost every single night because devices were down or had to be reset.
