Components of Industrial Protocol Interface integration

Industrial Protocol Interface
The Industrial Protocol Interface plugin is installed on a Security Center server and runs as a plugin role. The plugin is used to expose parts of Security Center to external BACnet and SMNP managers.
Config Tool
The Industrial Protocol Interface plugin is also installed on a Config Tool workstation. The Security Center administrator uses Config Tool to create and configure the plugin role, and to forward Security Center events using supported protocols.
Security Desk
The Industrial Protocol Interface plugin does not require Security Desk.
