Enterprise Sustainability Platform (ESP)

Managing Facilities Resources and Applications

Talisen’s Enterprise Sustainability Platform (ESP) is an enterprise level tool that consolidates the management of resources and applications. The platform operates through a single secure access gateway and uses a series of customized “analytics” that enables you to minimize both costs and cycle-time within the operation.

With this platform, you can access, collect, normalize and analyze data from a variety of equipment, software and applications. The ability to converge data from various repositories into a single master data warehouse provides a new level of insight and transparency into the operations and process across the enterprise.

ESP serves as the underlying platform for providing content suited for public kiosk based displays, as well as a comprehensive analysis, reporting and data collection solution for use by building staff. These analysis tools are designed to provide facility managers and energy managers the ability to monitor utility usage and cost information, real-time metering data and to provide a measurement and verification (M&V) platform for tracking energy conservation measures.

Data Acquisition Gateway

Data Collection and Distribution Framework

Talisen’s ESP is complete with a robust data integration middleware component called the Data Acquisition Gateway (DAG). The DAG is a multi-tiered data collection and distribution framework designed for integration with building automation system (BAS) protocols, as well as other TCP/IP based protocols.

Talien’s gateway consists of a system scheduler to allow polling of systems at different intervals and data access is organized as a collection or protocol and device drivers. The DAG supports a number of standard TCP/IP IT protocols such as SQL, (s)FTP, HTTP(s), OPC etc. as well standard BAS protocols such as BACNet/IP, Modbus/IP. The modular protocol/device driver architecture allows for easy extensibility.
