  • 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 
    Time: 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT

  • An Integrator's Perspective on Building Networks

    Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Mont Royal 1 Event Organizer: Realcomm/IBcon

    It's recently become a more common practice to install a building IP network for operations and client services. Sometimes the network strategy begins with one specific application or system and then evolves, in other cases it is designed from the beginning to be a comprehensive connectivity platform for all building and IoT systems. Either way, integrators are finding themselves involved in the design and deployment of building networks. As the concept evolves, questions and issues are becoming more complex. Converged or separate? How many separate networks are feasible? What about integration and interoperability, as well as cybersecurity? This vital segment will focus on all the fundamental issues surrounding building networks.

  • Connections 2018

    Richmond Hill Country Club, Events Center Event Organizer: Yorkland Controls

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the Building Automation world. The converging technology and application that are being offered to covert buildings into smarter, more connected, buildings are becoming too complex to integrate, unstructured, un-managed and inherently insecure.

    Connections 2018, hosted by Yorkland Controls, brings together the voice of end-users and several third-party technology experts to delve into the smart building solutions that support the latest trends in building automation, security, analytics and other converging applications.

    This complimentary, half-day event, will walk you through:  

    • Examples: Where connected buildings are headed and how it will help you redefine your approach to energy management, facilities operations, sustainability programs, and corporate real estate.
    •  “Smarter” sensors, network ready control devices, the availability of cloud-based services, smart equipment and analytics is redefining how we think and how we deploy Building Automation Systems, sensing technology, Network Information Systems, and energy systems to provide value exceeding the first cost of integrating these once- separate systems.
    • Operational Technology Networks (OT): Networks dedicated to smart technology devices solve the pain points in today's buildings such as cybersecurityworking with IT and bridging the skills gap with traditional integrators, future-proof networking technology and reducing the total cost of ownership of an integrated OT network.
    • Future proofing is more than just technology. It's a blend of top performing companies, products, integrators, distributors and service. Together, these form the backbone to a future proof and secure building that can transform as technology changes in the years to come.

    Come learn about industry trends, exchange ideas, and hear about some of the ways we at Yorkland Controls and our partners are changing the future of building portfolio management.

    The event is targeted towards ends users, systems integrators, IT professionals and facilities, and property management organizations.
