Optigo and Alerton announce partnership

We are proud to share that we’re the exclusive building networks solutions partner for Alerton’s Strategic Partner Program. Our Optigo ConnectTM product line is now available for distribution through the Alerton Dealer Network. Together, Optigo and Alerton will offer improved building management and network connectivity with the Alerton Ascent VisualLogicTMIP (VIP) controllers and Optigo Connect’s HybridTM and SpectraTM solutions.

“We’re excited to work with Optigo Networks as its complementary technology allows us to provide better value and competitive advantages for our dealers and improved efficiency for building owners and operators,” says Alerton’s Product Evangelist, Kevin Callahan. “Pairing Optigo’s networking technology with our Ascent Building Management Solution creates a solution that is easy to implement, easy to manage, and even more powerful.” 

The Optigo Connect family offers easy-to-manage switches for healthy operational technology (OT) networks. With Optigo OneViewTM, users can connect IP devices across large distances while maintaining network management from a single location. OneClick SecureTM provides one-step network security, closing all open ports and locking used ports to the connected devices at the click of a button.

The Optigo Connect line pairs perfectly with Alerton’s newest release, the VisualLogicTMIP (VIP) Controllers. These advanced controllers feature industry first support for both IPv4 and IPv6, providing a flexible, future-proof solution for building controls. With a real-time clock, high-resolution 16-bit universal inputs and outputs, and a 32-bit processor, these controllers seamlessly integrate with any BACnet system and can also be installed as a standalone controller. 

“We believe this partnership is a true alignment of shared values,” says Pook-Ping Yao, CEO of Optigo Networks. “Our highly resilient building network solutions, coupled with Alerton’s building controllers, will provide dealer and end users with a powerful and complete building management system that is easy to install and manage. We look forward to working with Alerton to drive innovations for buildings for today and tomorrow.”

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.

Optigo Connect MR Soluciones The Landmark


The Landmark is a sophisticated mixed-use high-rise in Mexico. The owners wanted to integrate all OT systems in the skyscraper, while maintaining separate networks for each application. The Landmark is the fourth joint project between Optigo Networks and MR Soluciones. Together, these companies provide robust services to meet any challenge.

Australian Bureau of Statistics at 45 Benjamin Way with Delta Building Automation


Delta Building Automation (Australia) had a big job renovating the Headquarters for the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) at 45 Benjamin Way. The building owner wanted to improve the building’s energy use and increase their National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) score to more than 4.5 stars, out of a possible total of six. Securing the network both internally and externally was a big priority, as well.

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


When Tom Walker first started working at Penn State University four years ago, there were a lot of network issues. Buildings were dropping offline. 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.


Torre Manacar Mexico City Optigo Connect


When MR Soluciones began work on Torre Manacar, they knew they needed a flexible and scalable network infrastructure to support a wide array of integrated systems. Optigo Networks was a natural fit for the massive project, designing a robust network at a competitive cost.



Short Pump Town Center, an upscale retail center, underwent a complete renovation in 2014. The flexibility of Optigo Networks’ solution meant the retail center’s unknown final design was not a barrier to placing IP surveillance equipment in the field.



Optigo Networks connected New York-based Boulevard Mall’s security surveillance devices in December 2015, using a Passive Daisy Chain topology.

Visual BACnet tech support team


One tech support team at a manufacturer purchased an account with Visual BACnet in April 2017, for technical problems around the world.
