Optigo Connect router management

Optigo Connect has long been a powerful solution for Operational Technology (OT) network management. Optigo’s line of networking products, controlled through Optigo OneView, meets OT’s needs for security and scalability while keeping it simple for the building and facility managers who run it all. 

With router management, the newest addition to the Optigo family, you can enjoy multi-layer network visibility in one platform. IP management becomes quick and effortless with OneView’s intuitive interface.

Before, setting up IP addresses meant you’d have to access each individual device separately, enter the three IPs (IP, subnet, and gateway), and save them. This was all manual, and left lots of room for human error.

With OneView, you can get up and running in mere minutes through DHCP and reserving IP addresses. This is huge, saving weeks of effort if not more. 

With Optigo’s router management, you can: 

  • Create a range of IP addresses and assign them, just like that. 
  • Securely provide public Internet access (WAN), on a subnet-by-subnet basis, as needed. 
  • Configure paths between VLANs and subnets (inter-VLAN routing) for communication between systems. 

All of this, and no complex commands or coding in CLI is required. Check out this step-by-step demo of the router management solution in OneView to learn more.

OT networks don’t need the complexity of IT-grade products. Optigo Connect provides the robust features of an IT infrastructure with user-friendly design for OT. Minimize your dependence on IT and truly own your network, with the solution for OT.

Recent 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.

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.
