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.

Diagnosing problems in your IP network is getting easier. But when your MS/TP network breaks down you have to put on your boots, drive to the site, set up a USB dongle and capture traffic right on site. This becomes a time consuming fix.

How do you know if something has been misconfigured? Do you spend days wondering who is responsible for the recent outage? Failures can go unnoticed for a long time and cause catastrophic problems at inconvenient times.

Determining the health of a building network is difficult, yet extremely valuable. In an age of convergence, building systems often have a number of contractors working on them, adding devices and continuously optimizing the system.

Join us as we take an in-depth exploration into Passive Optical Networking (PON).  We will look at what makes PON unique and discuss how it can create the perfect Converged Building Operations Network in single building or campus projects.

BACnet systems are shockingly vulnerable. Are your systems secure? Join us as we discuss the role of Cybersecurity in BACnet.

6 million commercial building in the US are believe to be secure. Every single one has exposed building controllers, security cameras and access control systems that an entry level hacker can hack into.

Wireshark has grown in popularity when analyzing BACnet communication in a building network to identify issues. However, this often has technicians spending an endless amount of time to find and resolve these issues.

Not sure what is happening in your building network? Dealing with poor network performance? Use Wireshark, a free network packet analyzer, to dig into the network traffic to uncover the root cause of the issue.
