Strategic partnership drives sustainability through IoT

A strategic partnership announced in March between Radix IoT and Australian building technologies and services company Techstream Systems Pty Ltd aims to expand Radix IoT’s Mango OS unified IoT platform across the APAC region. By integrating Mango with its wholistic building automation solution offerings, Techstream supports building owners’ sustainability compliance with Green Building Council of Australia’s (GBCA) Green Star rating and the National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS), meant to reverse nearly a quarter of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions and over half of the electricity consumption by commercial buildings.

To help building owners achieve and maintain a Green Star Designed rating — an optional assessment representing a pre-certification that the building’s design is on track to achieve a Green Star rating when assessed after construction — Techstream searched for an easy-to-engineer and easy-to-use solution to provide real-time metering and reporting of energy consumption to enhance existing and new building management systems. “After testing many solutions, I can confidently say that Radix IoT’s Mango is the best available solution in the market,” said Victor Wang, Founder of Techstream Systems. “Mango’s flexibility, open-web technology and interoperability with Windows, Mac and Linux platforms makes it a powerful solution that allows users to create bespoke solutions should requirements arise.”

As a complementary solution to Techstream’s offerings, Mango’s advanced alarming and integrated tools offer trending analytics through a web interface, providing deep data visibility and insights to assist Green Star ratings verifications. Mango’s custom reports harness and organise data required to facilitate compliance reporting. One of its supported formats is Microsoft Excel documents, which can either be produced on-demand or scheduled and attached via email based on specific events­. Using Mango’s cost-competitive, web-based solution, Techstream’s developers can work with stakeholders to produce customised reports that identify where operating expenses can be reduced as well as preparing ESG (environmental, social and governance) reports for portfolios of buildings. Radix IoT claims that the Mango solution can be scaled to work on any size of project.

“Our partnership with Techstream Systems allows Radix IoT to expand distribution, design services and customer support into APAC,” said Michael Skurla, Chief Product Officer at Radix IoT, LLC.

With the APAC region’s manufacturing boom, Techstream is tapping into such manufacturing hubs as Malaysia, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, which now require Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification and responsible sourcing for all their factories. Additionally, Techstream plans to expand into the Gulf States where a sustainable buildings surge requires smart building automation solutions.
