Ethernet Alliance hosting virtual booth at BICSI Fall Conference

The Ethernet Alliance announced it will be hosting a virtual booth at the online BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2020. The global consortium dedicated to the advancement of Ethernet technologies seeks to connect with the BICSI professional association’s information and communications technology (ICT) experts focused on building infrastructure, and engage them in its activities in areas such as operational technology (OT) networks and Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Understanding Cabling Considerations for PoE to support IoT

PoE standardization and its implications on cabling and efficient power delivery is creating a timely opportunity to power the growing number of IoT devices being added to the cabling infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively. In CommScope’s white paper you’ll learn why PoE adoption is increasing, the applications driving it, how the key technical standards work with it, what the key considerations for cabling selection are and how to create solutions that are more efficient.

Webinar: The Value Smart Buildings bring Occupants, Operators and Owners

Smart Building technology is not just about gaining some efficiency in operation or reducing energy usage – it’s about shifting the way you think about the value a building can provide. 
With the world changing at a rapid pace, how do you streamline the Smart Building procurement process? How do you ensure you make the right choices today, that will not only help to future proof your assets, but instill confidence in occupants, operators and owners? Join our panel of industry experts as we take a deeper dive into the value Smart Buildings bring Occupants, Operators and Owners.

Join Trend and Smart Buildings Magazine’s panel sessions to explore…

Trend Controls is partnering with Smart Buildings Magazine to deliver three panel sessions, exploring the future of smart buildings and the role that BMS technologies plays within it. The built environment has already seen a drastic change over the past six months. The challenge now is to navigate the new wave of requirements for a healthy building and answer key questions such as; How can data play a role in managing built environments? How can employers make buildings healthier, to improve occupant experience? And how can we reduce our environmental impact?

IoT Security Foundation Launches Smart Buildings Working Group

IoTSF has created a Smart Buildings Working Group and we need your help to make it safe for smart buildings. We invite you to join the mission to make Smart Buildings safe and secure over their lifetime. The goal of the Working Group is to establish a comprehensive set of guidelines to help each of the supply chain participants to specify, procure, install, integrate, operate and maintain IoT securely in buildings. This includes intelligent buildings equipment and controls such as audio visual (AV), fire, HVAC, lighting and building security.

Third annual global IoT survey launched by element14

element14, the Development Distributor, announces the launch of its third, annual IoT Survey. The survey provides an opportunity for Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT product designers and system engineers to share insights about the market while helping shape the product range and technical resources offered by element14 to support this diverse and evolving technology.
The survey is open from 15 September to 1 December 2020 with results of the survey to be announced in spring 2021.

Single Pair Ethernet- and why it will transform the industrial data landscape

What is Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) and why is it so important for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)? SPE is based on a two-wire cabling protocol offering secure communication over longer distances and with a smaller footprint. These features are central to the question of why SPE is needed. As more and more devices in commercial and industrial applications become “connected”, there are increased demands on space both inside the devices and in the cable ducts that connected them together. And while WiFi has its uses in these environments; it does not offer the security or reliability of a wired communications network.
