|Trend Connect is a managed connectivity solution that utilises
mobile communications to remotely connect to Trend Ethernet
devices such as IQ3, EINC and 3Extend/EINC L. This remote
connection is achieved using a High-Speed Packet Access
(HSPA) connection, or a General Packet Radio Service (GPRS)
connection where 3G connectivity is unavailable.
The solution uses a Sierra Wireless Airlink Raven XE Ethernet
gateway (modem) to provide a secure and reliable network
connection to remote Ethernet devices, using a Virtual Private
Network (VPN). The VPN infrastructure and connection are
managed by Trend Control Systems, reducing the administration
resource and commissioning time.
The connection provided allows the full use of Trend software
such as 963 and System Engineering Tool (SET), and enables
Trends post-occupancy services such as IQEYE, Trend Energy Manager, remote
alarm monitoring, and 24/7 remote support.
|The Trend Connect managed network enables full administration
and reporting of the connected Trend site to be carried out.
Access to the site is through a Virtual Private Network (VPN)
connection, using an internet connection provided by the HSPA
(3G) or GPRS connection. The VPN connection is configured
by Trend to access only the relevant users site(s).
There are three methods of connecting to the remote site;
VPN Agent, VPN Client and Trend Connect Modem. The
solution that best fits your requirements will be suggested by
your Trend representative, after careful analysis of your needs.
The VPN Agent and VPN Client solutions both allow you
to connect, over the internet, to the remote Trend Ethernet
network over the VPN. The only difference is that the VPN
Agent software automatically connects to the remote site every
time the PC on which it is installed is switched on. This is useful
for remote alarm monitoring using 963. The VPN Client must be
manually connected by the user when it is required.
