Encompass Blue for Airports, Railways & Public Spaces

Airports, railways, and public spaces not only consume a large amount of energy but are also high-risk zones for the spreading of germs, bacteria, and viruses. Public transport areas are flooded with thousands of people in motion at any given time. This requires the HVAC system to run continually and maintain high sanitation, comfort, and safety standards. Blue IoT’s Encompass Blue offers a sustainable, cost-effective program with minimal interruptions, which can help substantially reduce energy consumption in such spaces. COVID-19 risk mitigation protocols such as IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) monitoring and airflow & filter management ensure a safe environment for all the staff and travellers.


Another big concern within such spaces is compromised cybersecurity because public transport networks are intricate and need strong cybersecurity against ransomware attacks. Encompass Blue’s cloud-based platform is based on a non-IP network, assuring a very low risk of cyber-attacks.


Encompass Blue’s interoperability and congruent indoor environmental monitoring can deliver a well-balanced environment across the entire infrastructure, allowing for pleasant comfort levels for all occupants.
