As the smart buildings market evolves and adapts to the ‘new normal’, facility managers and service providers are turning to IoT solutions to seamlessly improve occupant wellness, security, and safety while at the same time reducing operational costs.
To expand on this topic, OCF is excited to host “The Future of Smart Commercial Buildings” webinar set to take place on September 22 at 8am PST. This webinar will feature leading experts from ABI Research, Cascoda and MBS GmbH as they provide a snapshot of the commercial buildings market and the future of smart building technologies.
In the smart building market, bus protocols for building automation have undergone few changes over the years. For example, BACnet, one of the youngest bus protocols, was created and established as building automation standard over 20 years ago. As the smart building market continues to evolve and technological conditions change, it is important that new technologies enter the market to support changing building management needs.
New technologies such as OCF and Thread can play a decisive role in the future of connected buildings, as they can seamlessly integrate into existing control systems. This shows how it is possible for wireless technologies to couple data from the both the classic bus protocols and new approaches for an effective, modern building management system.
Webinar attendees will be provided with the history of bus protocols and integration with new building automation technologies along with a demonstration of the coupling of OCF and Thread technologies with BACnet data models. Additionally, attendees will gain insights into the current commercial building automation ecosystem and use cases driving the adoption of smart building technologies.
OCF invites facility management consultants, technology product managers, communication service providers, IoT solution providers and more to register for the webinar today.
