How Penn State uses Visual BACnet Site Monitoring to reduce and maintain network traffic

How PSU uses Visual BACnet across their campuses

Four years ago, Penn State was at 90,000 packets per hour of broadcast traffic. At least a dozen different buildings were randomly dropping offline. The network team was on the phone almost every single night because something was down, something wasn’t communicating, or something had to be reset. They needed a powerful tool to drastically reduce and maintain network traffic. But they tried just about every program out there, and the programs were clunky, inflexible, and cost tens of thousands of dollars every year just to licence.

Hear how Tom Walker and his team at PSU have found the perfect solution for their network, with Visual BACnet Site Monitoring. You’ll learn:

  • What Penn State did to reduce their network traffic and make it healthy

  • How they use Visual BACnet across their campuses

  • And how the team at Penn State plans to continue lowering network traffic with Visual BACnet
