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.

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.
