REDUCING FINGERPOINTING

PINPOINTING PROBLEMS IN YOUR BACNET SYSTEM

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. Currently, technicians don’t know something is wrong until a customer complains, and the days spent fixing it can leave customers very unhappy.

Join us with special guest Gary Brancato, Controls Engineer at Princeton University to learn how they use Visual BACnet to pin-point problems in their BACnet system. We will discuss how users of all skill levels can drill down further into the user friendly dashboards to find problematic BACnet frames and access specific device parameters. Visual BACnet™’s quick and easy visualization presents the information in a way that is easy to understand. Problems that have yet to be found can be identified, and the right people can be brought in to fix them before the misconfigurations cause real issues. Stay one step ahead of your customer and have fewer emergency fixes and more time for proper fixes.

Learn about different modes of network access, including Ethernet, Wi-Fi, hotspots, and clients. We’ll explore the pros and cons of each, and their different applications and uses.

Learn about the network layers and their roles. We’ll cover the differences between the OSI and TCP/IP Model, and how these layers form the basic network architecture.

Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) are different in a lot of ways, from their design to their maintenance workflows and more.

It’s super important to have unique Device IDs on your BACnet system, but duplicates are a very common problem. You might not even realize you have duplicate IDs, with devices only responding periodically.

There’s a ton you can do in Optigo OneViewTM, from managing and organizing VLANs, to creating mirror ports and securing the network at the touch of a button.

Visual BACnet is a powerful program that removes the guesswork to diagnosing problems on your network. It provides a concrete Network Health Score, highlights key issues, and empowers users to improve their networks over time.

Advanced Reports are a fantastic addition to your service offerings, and a great way to keep your network updates on track. You can use them to:
- Communicate the site’s status with your customer

VLANs and BBMDs seem at complete odds with each other. One is meant to separate and segregate traffic. The other is designed to broadcast messages across the network, without limit for which devices should get what messages.
