Optigo Networks' webinar on the case for BACnet IP with guest Phil Zito Building Automation Monthly

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?

Join our webinar with Phil Zito of Building Automation Monthly and our very own Ryan Hughson, as they delve into these layers of BACnet. Find out if, and why, BACnet/IP is the right choice for our smart buildings.

Flickering lights. Erratic heating. Slow or missing data. One tiny little strand of wire can cause big problems on your MS/TP networks.
Join Ryan Hughson, Optigo Networks’ Manager of Building Solutions, and Monica McMahen, Marketing Manager, as they detail the ins and outs of duplicate BBMDs.

Join Ryan Hughson and Monica McMahen as they discuss circular networks. How does a circular network happen, and how can you recognize it? How do you fix it, and how is it identified in Visual BACnet? All of this in less than 10 minutes!

On September 10, 2016, Optigo Networks launched Visual BACnet, the advanced visualization tool for Building Automation System (BAS) service providers. One year later, how has Visual BACnet evolved?
How do duplicate networks happen? What can you do to spot duplicate networks in Visual BACnet, and how can you prevent them in the future?
Getting regular captures of your building network is crucial to understanding its behaviour. Without daily or weekly insights into your network health, you can’t possibly begin to improve it.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is the rising star of the building automation and security industry. Cameras, access control, lighting and HVAC devices can be powered and communicate on the network with just a single Ethernet connection.

When Australian energy analytics company BUENO Systems used to start working with a new building, they would have no idea what was happening on the building’s network.

Operational technology (OT) — including HVAC, lighting, and security — is regularly managed by IT departments alongside computers and phones.
