Advances in cost-effective IoT technologies are transforming commercial buildings into intelligent spaces that are better aligned with the needs of both property owners and tenants.
From equipment and personnel tracking to environmental monitoring and building controls automation – connected office solutions enable smarter decision-making, increased tenant satisfaction and lower operational costs.
Unlocking this potential depends on connectivity and computing at the edge – where wireless devices, tags and sensors must gather data and communicate with cloud – reliably and securely.
Build your Smart Office solution on Rigado’s Cascade Edge-as-a-Service platform and start getting IoT sensor data to your cloud application faster.
|Example Sensors Types:||Typical Edge Applications:|
|Desk Presence Sensor||Employee Tracking & Schedule Optimization|
|Maintenance Sensor||Supply & Clean-up Notification|
|Comfort Sensor||Building Controls Integration|
|Occupancy Sensor||Office Space Utilization & Smart Lighting|
CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate services & investment firm.
CBRE needed room and desk occupancy data to enable work space efficiency calculations, meeting room availability, and building system automation control in their CBRE 360 application. They wanted an edge data solution that matched their pricing schedule with their end customer and did not require excessive upfront hardware costs.
CBRE deployed Rigado’s Cascade Edge-as-a-Service with its simple monthly subscription and all inclusive management and update tools. They bundled into their subscription Rigado’s RS-40 occupancy sensors for a complete edge data solution.
CBRE 360 is rolling out enhanced employee experiences around the globe, helping tenants and investors create transformative workplace solutions by integrating property services and amenities with advanced digital technologies. The service is currently provided in CBRE’s most advanced buildings, including the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco.

Reliable and secure edge connectivity is often challenging – and expensive – for building technology solution providers and systems integrators to design, develop and deploy. Integrating a secure, low-power wireless (e.g. BLE) solution into an existing building system can be complex and often requires a custom architecture. Additionally, creating an IoT solution from scratch is both time and resource-intensive and often requires substantial up-front capital, unnecessarily lengthening time to ROI.
For these reasons, Smart Office solution providers choose to partner with Rigado, leveraging our Cascade infrastructure as the foundation of their edge connectivity and computing.
Watch our product overview video to see how Cascade Edge-as-a-Service provides System Integrators and Solution Providers with secure edge computing, a containerized application environment, scalable management tools and a variety of connectivity options.
All in a simple ‘Edge-as-a-Service’ monthly subscription.
Our Cascade Edge-as-a-Service offering provides all the elements required for a secure and scalable edge infrastructure for Smart Building solutions, including:
Flexible IoT Connectivity – wide range of options for both building end-devices (Bluetooth, Thread, Zigbee) and upstream cloud data connections (Ethernet with PoE, Wi-Fi, LTE).
Edge Computing – Our gateways run Ubuntu Core for simple container management and the ability to easily deploy, run and update multiple smart office applications on a single gateway.
Simple monitoring and management – Monitor connectivity and performance of your gateways, and easily deploy edge application updates via our cloud interface, or use the included API with your DevOps tools.
Security at Scale – Certified security that starts at the point of manufacturing and extends to in-the-field patches as new threats and exploits emerge, keeping building facilities secure.
Cascade combines flexible connectivity and edge computing to bring key benefits to our partners building commercial IoT solutions:
