The Case for BACnet/IP

Why should — or shouldn’t — you adopt BACnet/IP?

For better or worse, MS/TP remains a dominant force in our connected buildings. It’s widely installed. Manufacturers continue to produce MS/TP-friendly devices. Some out there shudder at the thought of replacing MS/TP with new technology. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Yet slowly, more and more buildings are moving onto BACnet/IP. There aren’t any hard and fast numbers on installations of IP versus MS/TP, but there is a growing shift in the industry. Not just because of the technological benefits — although IP is lauded for its simplicity and inherent connectivity. No, the shift is due to the business benefits of BACnet/IP.

What is the business case for BACnet/IP? How can we get this technology working for us today?
