With the release of NiagaraAX 3.1, Tridium continues driving device to enterprise automation software applications. The NiagaraAX comprehensive software infrastructure allows companies to model the data and behavior of diverse devices in a uniform way and make it easy to connect them to enterprise applications.

● Support for oBIX, the industry-wide initiative to define XML and Web services- based mechanisms for communications between building control systems and enterprise software applications
In addition to the NiagaraAX 3.1 software release, Tridium has also made several memory enhancements to its highly successful family of JAVA Application Control Engines (JACEs) to support the new release.
