Calgary, AB — At the 2019 USITT Stage Expo in Louisville, KY, Pathway Connectivity launched a technology preview, demonstrating how their Ethernet products can be remotely managed through SixEye’s cloud-based technology. SixEye provides industry leading remote management of professional control devices by offering a platform that allows integrators to manage devices from multiple manufacturers and projects.
Sites such as museums, theme parks and architecture with SixEye enabled DMX-Ethernet gateways, VIA switches and Vignette lighting controllers can be configured, updated or triggered from anywhere offsite. A system is typically installed and is left running smoothly but if something changes on the network that needs attention, alerts are sent directly via SMS or email, providing diagnostic information. From there a systems integrator can quickly troubleshoot without needing to travel to the site. Information from the enabled devices can be accessed from anywhere over a safe and secure internet connection using industry-standard TLS. No VPN or firewall holes needed.
“Secure, remote management has been at the top of our customers’ wish list for years, but managing bespoke hardware in the field specific to the task and dealing with on-site IT professionals for custom firewall rules has always been a huge barrier to entry. SixEye’s software development kit allowed our developers to easily leverage all the hard work done in the backend so that we don’t have to deal with TLS, AWS, site databases or user permissions. Integrators will love what this offers in way of strengthening their relationships with their customers,” said Robert Bell, Pathway Connectivity’s Director of Product Marketing.
“We're delighted to welcome Pathway as a SixEye Connected Manufacturer. They were quick to embrace the SixEye concept of manufacturer-agnostic remote management for systems integrators and it was a pleasure to work with their team as we implemented support for their devices. Pathway is SixEye's second manufacturer partner so this technology preview was a great opportunity to test our ability to add support for a new manufacturer. We're looking forward to working with Pathway and their customers to enable remote management on new and existing projects,” said Simon Hicks, CEO, SixEye.
Pathway is committed to providing the latest technology to their customers and together with SixEye, they’re taking a new step towards providing Systems Integrators with something new - the convenience of remote management.
