The PlanIT Operating System™ (PlanIT OS™)
The Living PlanIT Operating System™ or PlanIT OS™ is a software platform that accelerates the development and deployment of urban technology and connected devices. It provides software-based flexible real-time control, as well as supervisory control, data acquisition and lifecycle management. Its real-time and historic analytical functions, together with a comprehensive Services Oriented Architecture API, simplify the building and operation of advanced data-driven and control-based applications on a variety of end-user devices. For more information on how the PlanIt OS™ achieves this, click here.
Living PlanIT primarily focuses the PlanIT OS™ on two key markets which constitute subsets of the ‘Internet of Things’:
- Living Cities / Smart Urban Developments – the emerging market for increasingly intelligent, sustainable buildings and infrastructure, whether deployed in new cities, major regeneration projects in existing cities, or individual developments.
- Machine-to-Machine Communications - the ‘connected device’ market, based on increasingly pervasive networks and providing remote sensing and interaction with a wide array of embedded and mobile devices, ranging from smartphones to vehicles, to robotic devices, to sensor ‘motes’.
Leveraging PlanIT's Operating System (PlanIT OS™) and Urban Operating System (PlanIT UOS™)
The majority of applications are delivered by a growing ecosystem of partners, but a few specialized applications – targeted at enhancing the design and delivery of smart cities – are sold by Living PlanIT. Further information about partner-provided applications for PlanIT OS™ can be found here while more information about smart city applications specialized for the PlanIT UOS™ vertical can be found on this page.
Living PlanIT supports optimized deployment of the PlanIT OS™ through the provision of professional services from Digital Masterplanning, through PlanIT OS™ and PlanIT UOS™ planning and commissioning to Operations and Analytical support. Living PlanIT takes advantage of both in-house resources and partners to deliver these services providing best-in-class services competitively. More details can be found here.
The PlanIT OS™ reduces the cost of providing control architectures in an urban context as well as advanced information and interaction management, in both private and public cloud contexts, by making extensive use of standard hardware and software components from partners such as our partners Cisco and Microsoft. Further, by providing a unified platform for all applications, sensors, and data, deeper insights are enabled because more naturally aligned information is available to interpret, in turn driving a richer history to provide predictive models and optimization. This means cheaper infrastructure, progressively more efficient operations and lower operating costs, and better consumer and user experiences.
PlanIT OS™ and UOS™ are available both directly from Living PlanIT and through our partners as part of advanced solutions, and are delivered in a range of easy-to-deploy hardware which are described further on this page.
