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.

BACnet networks can be brought down by excessive traffic, devices sending errors, and hundreds of other variables. Luckily Wireshark can help identify the troublemaker devices and root causes of network problems.

Get ahead of the curve with data that enables your team to make the switch to proactive maintenance. Facility teams are busy — automating even a small part of your workload opens up opportunities to drive change in your building portfolio.

Following our last webinar, there is a huge demand for another webinar on how to use Visual BACnet. Therefore, we are bringing this webinar back and sneaking it in just before the holidays!

Diagnosing problems in your IP network is getting easier. But when your MS/TP network breaks down you have to put on your boots, drive to the site, set up a USB dongle and capture traffic right on site. This becomes a time consuming fix.

How do you know if something has been misconfigured? Do you spend days wondering who is responsible for the recent outage? Failures can go unnoticed for a long time and cause catastrophic problems at inconvenient times.

Determining the health of a building network is difficult, yet extremely valuable. In an age of convergence, building systems often have a number of contractors working on them, adding devices and continuously optimizing the system.

Join us as we take an in-depth exploration into Passive Optical Networking (PON).  We will look at what makes PON unique and discuss how it can create the perfect Converged Building Operations Network in single building or campus projects.

BACnet systems are shockingly vulnerable. Are your systems secure? Join us as we discuss the role of Cybersecurity in BACnet.

6 million commercial building in the US are believe to be secure. Every single one has exposed building controllers, security cameras and access control systems that an entry level hacker can hack into.
