Johnson Controls has announced the acquisition of Tempered Networks, based in Seattle, Washington.
Tempered Networks has created ‘Airwall’ technology, a new system for buildings that enables secure network access across groups of endpoint devices, edge gateways, cloud platforms and service technicians. It represents a step-change in operational technology built on secure transmission pipelines to ensure buildings data exchanges and service actions can only take place between people and devices that are continuously authenticated.
Tempered Networks Airwall technology creates new overlay networks built on encrypted and authenticated communication. This allows a new level of authentication for connected building systems to be created, allowing for greater system automation of functions such as heating and cooling, lighting, security and airflows.
