Top Level Overview
N-GEN software provides and displays real time monitoring and enhanced historical reporting of all monitored parameters associated with power, energy, environmental, physical security and asset management.
As part of the MPL Estate Wide Technology deliverable, N-GEN software provides the ‘glue’ to visualise collected data. In addition to its’ reporting capabilities, N-GEN offers instantaneous alerting and alarming against client specified thresholds.
N-GEN integrates fully with a wide range of measuring devices for multiple applications. These devices include but are not limited to Sub Meters, MID Metering, Data Collection Gateways, Circuit Monitoring, Granular Monitoring (particularly relevant in data centre/computer room applications), Physical Security, Environmental Monitoring and 3rd Party Devices.
Centralised data collection and reporting is a fundamental cornerstone to the Estate management programme. This capability enables the client to extract all relevant information into our ‘umbrella’ platform which greatly simplifies reporting and data analysis.
N-GEN can be installed in a number of ways, including:
Local deployment on a client server (on premise). Licences are purchased based on the number of connected devices. Clients can upgrade their licence to accommodate an increase in devices/ functionality at any point. This option applies to NGEN Enterprise and NGEN Lite
