Why Visual BACnet?
If there’s one certainty in building automation systems, it’s that there will be network problems. The question is, how long will it take to find and fix the issues?
Isolating a problem in a network with thousands of devices can be time-consuming and overwhelming. With Visual BACnet, users can monitor networks, quickly identify issues, create reports, track problem devices, analyze packet traffic, and much more.
When Tom Walker first started working at Penn State University years ago, there were a lot of network issues. Buildings were dropping offline, and he was on the phone almost every night because devices were down or had to be reset.
Walker and his team managed to reduce broadcast traffic over the years, from 90,000 down to about 30,000 packets per hour; but that took a half-dozen different tools and two dedicated network integrity analysts. Now with Visual BACnet, they’re getting into the nitty-gritty of refining and maintaining network health — especially as the network continues expanding year over year.
