  • Webinar: Managing VLANs and BBMDs

    -
    Event Organizer: Optigo Networks

    VLANs and BBMDs seem at complete odds with each other. One is meant to separate and segregate traffic. The other is designed to broadcast messages across the network, without limit for which devices should get what messages.
     
    BBMDs and VLANs do coexist on IP and MS/TP networks everywhere. We need to know how to properly segregate traffic, while making sure devices get the information they need.
     
    Join our webinar with Robert Lastinger from Distech Controls, where we’ll do a live demo on a BACnet MS/TP network. We’ll share best practices you can apply to your networks today, show you how to configure MS/TP to IP routing, and answer all your burning questions about BBMDs and VLANs.

  • How We Work: Princeton University

    -
    Event Organizer: Optigo Networks

    At Optigo, we firmly believe IT and OT teams can work together in any number of ways. Your network could be separate or converged, and you could assign responsibilities based on expertise or device type. Really, the only “wrong” way to work together is not at all. 

    With that in mind, we’re exploring all the ways you and your colleagues can work together. What systems and workflows can you put in place? How can you assign responsibilities? How We Work is the new series where we dig into the technical and social sides of managing building networks. 

    Join us for our first episode, where we’ll chat with Adam Boltz, controls engineer, and Kevin Gift, associate director of critical infrastructure from Princeton University. We’ll find out how they’ve designed a system that works, and let you ask your most burning questions.

    Date: Thursday, March 14th
