Optigo Networks is off to Atlanta, Georgia for this year’s AHR Expo, January 14–16! AHR is the world’s largest Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVACR) marketplace, with tens of thousands of industry professionals attending every year. We’ll be highlighting our cornerstone products and announcing new releases at the exhibition.
At Optigo, we spend so much time neck-deep in networking, building automation, and BACnet, it’s easy to forget most of the world doesn’t think much about BBMDs and MS/TP.
If you’re a building owner, you don’t really care about the nuts and bolts of your network. You care that your building is comfortable, safe, and secure for your tenants, and that the technology won’t be obsolete in five years.
November 27, 2018, Vancouver, BC – Vancouver-based Optigo Networks, the network connectivity, monitoring, and analytics company, has released a whitepaper on the future of BACnet and the Building Internet of Things (BIoT). This whitepaper probes the biggest questions we face in BACnet, the building automation communications protocol, and our smart buildings today.
Gary Brancato had a problem. As a controls engineer at Princeton University, he has a small team and a big campus. It’s just him and his fellow controls engineer Adam, juggling 1,000 Ethernet devices from more than a dozen vendors. When there are network issues, there’s lots of finger-pointing between the vendors, passing the buck and saying it’s someone else’s fault.
The BAS industry is at a turning point, with IP connectivity shifting the way we see our brick and mortar buildings.
At Optigo, we live and breathe BACnet. Our Visual BACnet diagnostics and monitoring platform has us chatting with experts from companies all over the industry, and technicians who use BACnet day in and day out.
When Tom Walker looked at Penn State University’s Navy Yard network, he saw big issues.
The system was busy and loud. So loud, that the overrun MS/TP network was bringing down the entire building.
Because this was happening on the MS/TP network, pinpointing the problem would mean boots on the ground to segment and test the chain, piece by piece.
We know, at the end of the day, the decisions you make for your business or building come down to time, money, and effort saved. What’s going to prove the most reliable, secure, and overall simple to use?
