Single Pair Ethernet will become a key technology in smart buildings. It is the missing link for connecting devices up to sensor/actuator level by means of a standard Internet protocol (IP). It has the potential to replace existing field bus systems in the Internet of Things (IoT) in buildings or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in smart factories.
The domOS project (Operating System For Smart Services in Buildings) aims to develop and demonstrate technologies for the digitalization of existing buildings to enable smart services related to energy.
Johnson Controls has partnered with DigiCert to enable its OpenBlue digital solutions suite. The DigiCert PKI solution elevates operations within the Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) space to ensure that hardware, software and communication remains trusted throughout the lifecycle of the smart building. This approach brings modern PKI security as well as advanced expertise in managing digital certificates to provide device authentication and identity, data encryption and integrity for each component of the ecosystem.
This webinar will describe a challenge to data accessibility in critical applications including building automation, process automation, and industrial manufacturing. We will show how the roadmap for Ethernet technology toward Single Pair Ethernet helps to address these challenges, and what integrators and end users can do in their project planning today to ensure their systems are future-ready.
When it comes to total cost of ownership for industrial-grade cables, there are four factors to consider: The cost of the initial system, the cost of maintenance, the cost of unplanned downtime, and the cost of non-compliance.
Looking at the challenges of a typical Internet of Things (IoT) rollout, the biggest hurdle usually isn’t how to connect IoT devices to the LAN. Instead getting power cheaply to the device is often a far more difficult problem. Let’s go over 4 things you should know to ensure a successful PoE install.
Read this interview with Doug Moore, Chairman of TIA’s Board of Directors and CEO of Fujitsu Network Communications. Moore explores the issues currently facing the ICT industry as the world begins to emerge after more than a year under work-from-home and social distancing advisory orders and discusses the challenges and opportunities lie ahead for our industry.
Compared to office leases in the city for non-smart buildings, MIT Center for Real Estate researcher Alfredo Keitaro Bando Hano (2018) found that office properties with smart building attributes attracted rents that commanded a 37 percent premium on effective rent per net square feet.
CRE building owners looking to make their building smarter must connect desired outcomes to how the building currently performs. The buildings in which we live, work and play are fundamentally changing to provide a more connected, safer and smarter surrounding environment. To accomplish this, many organizations are converging IT and OT groups as part of a new strategic approach to managing buildings and the migration of systems and subsystems to operate over IP networks. There are many factors driving new advancements in commercial real estate property technology around the world, but perhaps none loom as large as preparing for the general population to re-emerge from Covid-19 lockdown, more than a year of doing everything “- from home.”
The revolutionary transmission technology Single Pair Ethernet is crossing the threshold from idea to market maturity. SPE could well replace traditional field bus technology in many areas. It is coming at just the right time to accelerate the digitalization of building automation and the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT).
