At Optigo, we firmly believe IT and OT 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, controls engineer, and Kevin, 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.
Do you struggle to communicate with your IT colleagues? Do they use concepts and language that go right over your head? We’ve got an introduction to networking that will get you caught up on the essentials of IT speak.
Register for our webinar to find out about key terms, and learn why networking is similar to the postal system. Hosts Robert Lastinger from Distech Controls and Dave Cousins from Optigo Networks will cover the basics of networking and explain concepts you should know. At the end of this session, you will be able to work better and closer with your IT colleagues.
