Go green and cut costs with Intel gateway solutions for smart building automation

Rising power consumption; increasing emissions; mounting energy costs. These and other factors are driving the need for a sustainable, eco-friendly future. However, although research continues on clean, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, the capital cost of producing a unit of energy has doubled since 2000. It's time for another approach.

This article explores how an off-the-shelf Advantech gateway is transforming smart buildings by taking the IoT from concept to application. Based on the Intel® Gateway Solutions for the Internet of Things that combines the Intel® Atom™ processor E3826 (formerly codenamed "Bay Trail") and technology from Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance members McAfee and Wind River, the UTX-3115 is a complete solution that enables real-time monitoring and remote management to optimize building automation systems. From modular components to market-ready systems, Intel and the 250+ global member companies of the Alliance provide the scalable, interoperable solutions that help facility owners and managers reduce OPEX to extract maximum value from commercial and industrial facilities.
