Creating a Robust BACnet Network at Coventry University

It was challenging to identify the cause of the broadcasts, and the Coventry team needed greater insight into their network than they already had. Goodman said that “as a small team, we need to be able to identify and respond to issues quickly.” 

Coventry University in the United Kingdom underwent extensive construction for campus expansion, requiring the installation of new devices and network changes. With all the activity on the network Chris Goodman, Senior BMS Technician at Coventry, and his team then had to deal with the subsequent broadcast storms. 

It was challenging to identify the cause of the broadcasts, and the Coventry team needed greater insight into their network than they already had. Goodman said that “as a small team, we need to be able to identify and respond to issues quickly.” 

It can be frustrating to not be able to find the source of a problem on your network. Other BACnet solutions require cumbersome searching and filtering to find the source of the issue. But Visual BACnet Site Monitoring diagnoses issues quickly so you can focus on fixing your problems rather than looking for them. With Visual BACnet, you can receive alerts when there is a dip in Network Health, have access to the network’s historical data, track improvements in your Network Health over time, and more.

“Visual BACnet plays a key role in helping us be proactive in our work and reduce the impact [of any network issues] on the university.”
Chris Goodman, Coventry University
