Nexos is Igor’s innovative, universal end-to-end PoE platform, that enables unprecedented levels of intelligent control over smart building systems in spaces of all sizes.
How Nexos Works
Nexos is the plural of the Latin nexus, meaning multiple connections from one central, most important part. Nexos uses the security and reliability of structured cable technology, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) as the backbone of its advanced technologies. It does this while retaining support and compatibility with other leading market protocols.
For example, an Igor-enabled building using Nexos will enjoy the benefits of a PoE-based “Digital Ceiling” while also being able to leverage other communication protocols within certain spaces for user specific applications, such as Bluetooth technology for beaconing.
With Nexos, any building owner or manager can transform their building into a future-proof agile asset. IoT communication is made simple, using one platform to communicate and manage the multitude of different needs across the building. Nexos is user-friendly, providing easy-to-use dashboards with common-sense commands to link a wide range of systems and devices in one unifying platform. It also retains compatibility with other IoT protocols, such as Zigbee and Bluetooth, which can be layered on Igor’s central software system. By using a standard structured cabling solution, Nexos provides superior bandwidth, reliability, security, and scalability compared to alternative technologies, but retains flexibility for best meeting diverse user case scenarios.
Nexos Decreases Installation and Retrofitting Costs
The open, non-proprietary ‘plug and play’ PoE technology, allows for decreased installation and retrofitting costs, lower upfront costs and ongoing savings via lowered maintenance requirements and energy usage controls. For retrofits of existing structures such as schools, retail buildings, offices and healthcare facilities, universal adaptability is necessary to realize the benefits of connected building systems. Igor’s PoE technology is fully integrated, yet modular, connecting any device manufacturer’s “off-the-shelf” fixtures with sensors. Igor’s solution also includes a powerful cloud analytics option, which can provide customizable dashboards detailing energy usage, and sensor data to monitor facility costs and efficiency.
Igor developed Nexos to be tightly integrated with Igor's top-of-the-line Intelligent PoE Lighting System. This allows for universal adaptability, providing businesses with intelligent, scalable PoE technology that can immediately control and power an entire building's lighting system while coordinating with any other building application in use. With the retained flexibility of an open API and the structured cable backbone of PoE, Nexos enables a proven, highly configurable, yet simple AI-ready enterprise software solution. This elegant technology delivers a clear path for future AI–enabled smart building deployment.
