Without the right plan, integrating smart technologies into a new or existing building can be a major challenge. At its core, a building’s consolidated IT/OT network serves as the foundation on which all smart technologies are layered. Because of this, resiliency must be designed and managed from the network up.
SPE offers the security that many purpose-built systems lack, and is optimized to reduce labor and materials costs in a network’s physical layer.
AEM and Superior Essex Communications hosted a technology forum on Tuesday, October 19 in conjunction with GITEX Global in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. GITEX Global is the UAE’s annual technology event, highlighting innovations and digital advancements of the region.
The forum, titled PowerWise Technology Forum, included AEM’s manager of technical services Steve Cowles and Superior Essex’s vice president of marketing Brian Ensign, along with Superior Essex international sales director Paul Weintraub, Sinclair Digital chief executive officer Farukh Aslam, and Sinclair Digital chief business officer Luis Suau.
PowerWise is Superior Essex’s product line that supports Power over Ethernet transmission. The forum addressed a broad collection of topics related to smart building infrastructure, including a focus on sustainability.
Smart buildings might tick a lot of boxes for the technology lovers out there, they are also unleashing a revolution in improved ventilation and air quality. In the last 18 to 24 months, we’ve started to see the evolution of IoT, where sensors became systems. The sensors are not just monitoring gas levels anymore, they are also monitoring things like light levels, sound levels and people counting.
Get a closer look at SPIRE, the industry’s first holistic smart buildings assessment and rating program. This 2-part webinar series will educate viewers on the six categories of assessment criteria and measurements. Part 1 will dive into Connectivity, Cybersecurity, and Life & Property Safety.
Panelists will share how SPIRE criteria were developed and how the program measures performance and provides building owners and managers with the information they need to drive more effective technology investment strategies.
Connectivity is the common thread that ties together operational technologies and enables smart building applications. The need for more connected devices also increases the risk for cyberattacks that need to be identified and addressed. Additionally, in the wake of a global pandemic, owners and managers are exploring how smart technologies support safer indoor environments for tenants and visitors.
With competing priorities for building owners, it has never been more critical for them to have a tool that helps break down silos and elevate strategies to achieve business goals.
With the shift to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Ethernet-based protocols enabling the collection of more data than ever from traditional OT-based devices and machinery, businesses are rapidly realizing the value of leveraging OT information to make informed business decisions. OT in turn can leverage IT data and analytics to improve productivity and efficiency, and reduce downtime and maintenance.
As the number of wireless devices, types and use-cases continues to rise, it exposes weaknesses in existing WiFi deployment architectures. Let’s look at four ways modern smart building WiFi deployments can be bolstered to better support the growing wireless needs of today’s smart buildings.
