Monitor big building networks, with Visual BACnet Site Manager

Visual BACnet Site Manager Optigo Networks
New innovation provides an overall view of network health, with the ability to dig into specific problems

April 3, 2019, Vancouver, BC – The latest release from Optigo Networks helps facility managers understand their building network’s health at the site, zone, and capture node levels. The network connectivity, management, and monitoring company’s new development highlights overall network health, with the ability to dig into specific problems as well. No matter what the network size or complexity, users can drill down and make sense of their data.

“As we have worked with our customers and partners, we have seen how complicated their building networks can become. This new release is a big development for controls engineers who need to understand the overall health of the network, give access to different vendors, and be able to pinpoint specific problems,” said Monica McMahen, Director of Marketing at Optigo Networks. “It is also a true collaboration with our customers at Penn State University, who beta-tested and consulted throughout the development process.”

Optigo’s Visual BACnet Site Monitoring is a powerful software platform that lets users track network trends and expose recurring issues. The Network Health Score is a quantifiable measure of the network’s condition, with key issues highlighted for easy reference. Users can spot problems, drill down, and troubleshoot to resolve. Email alerts can even be set for sudden changes in network health.

The new Visual BACnet Site Manager aggregates different capture nodes across the building or campus network, and calculates overall and individual network health scores. This information is organized into a simplified dashboard, for seamless navigation. From there, facility managers can monitor and track the overall site score, and easily pinpoint problem areas. Monitored sites can even be shared at different access levels — Admin or View Only — with coworkers, vendors, contractors, and other parties.

The innovative Visual BACnet Site Manager gives facility managers the power to organize, understand, optimize, and collaborate on their building and campus networks.

Visual BACnet Site Manager will be officially available April 25, 2019. To learn more about this new release, watch Optigo’s webinar with Penn State University. The webinar covered key benefits and features of the Site Manager, and showed how Penn State uses Visual BACnet on their campus.

PENN STATE UNIVERSITY

When Tom Walker looked at Penn State University’s Navy Yard network, he saw huge issues. The system was busy and loud, to the point where the overrun network was bringing down the entire building. Because this was happening on the MS/TP network, pinpointing the problem would mean boots on the ground to segment and test the chain, piece by piece.
