We recently hosted a webinar on the future of BACnet, moderated by our own CEO Pook-Ping Yao, with very special guests Andy McMillan of BACnet International, Phil Zito of Building Automation Monthly, and Adam Rinderle of bluEvolution. We dove into industry challenges, solutions, key debates, and the future of the BACnet protocol.
All our guests came with their own unique set of knowledge and experience to contribute to the discussion. Andy, as the President of BACnet International, is the expert on where the protocol’s been and where it’s going. Phil, a long-time building automation technician who now trains techs worldwide as Owner, Author, and Host of Building Automation Monthly, knows about the on-the-ground realities of building automation. Adam, as Principal and Founder of a smart building technology design and consulting firm, sees how IT and OT work together on massive, sprawling networks.
We had a jam-packed agenda, full of discussion and debate on everything from IP and MS/TP, to security, to closing the industry skills gap. Watch the webinar, and access resources for further information and training below.
