BACnet Secure Connect webinar

Everyone is growing more aware of the need for cybersecurity. There have been so many cyberattacks in recent years, it’s almost impossible to ignore. But there’s long been a view that cybersecurity is only an IT issue. Historically, building automation with BACnet has taken a different approach to cybersecurity, leading to confusion.

That’s changing in a big way with BACnet Secure Connect (BACnet/SC). This new technology will help keep your networks secure going forward, with new best practices that are IT-friendly and still backwards compatible with existing BACnet systems. But what does it all mean, and what do you need to know?

Join us to learn more about how BACnet Secure Connect will affect you, and what else you should know about keeping your systems secure. We’ll be talking with Bernhard Isler from Siemens and David Fisher from PolarSoft, two main figures behind BACnet/SC.

Deep Dive into IT Networking Transport and Application

Do you struggle to communicate with your IT colleagues? Do they use concepts and language that go right over your head?We’re digging into the network layers to help you understand IT networking. 

In this session, we'll cover: 

1. TCP and UDP 
2. BACnet 
3. Protocols

On September 10, 2016, Optigo Networks launched Visual BACnet, the advanced visualization tool for Building Automation System (BAS) service providers. One year later, how has Visual BACnet evolved?
How do duplicate networks happen? What can you do to spot duplicate networks in Visual BACnet, and how can you prevent them in the future?
Getting regular captures of your building network is crucial to understanding its behaviour. Without daily or weekly insights into your network health, you can’t possibly begin to improve it.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is the rising star of the building automation and security industry. Cameras, access control, lighting and HVAC devices can be powered and communicate on the network with just a single Ethernet connection.

When Australian energy analytics company BUENO Systems used to start working with a new building, they would have no idea what was happening on the building’s network.

Operational technology (OT) — including HVAC, lighting, and security — is regularly managed by IT departments alongside computers and phones.

BACnet networks can be brought down by excessive traffic, devices sending errors, and hundreds of other variables. Luckily Wireshark can help identify the troublemaker devices and root causes of network problems.

Get ahead of the curve with data that enables your team to make the switch to proactive maintenance. Facility teams are busy — automating even a small part of your workload opens up opportunities to drive change in your building portfolio.

Following our last webinar, there is a huge demand for another webinar on how to use Visual BACnet. Therefore, we are bringing this webinar back and sneaking it in just before the holidays!
