Managing VLANs and BBMDs

Learn how to segregate traffic and broadcast on your network — properly.

VLANs and BBMDs seem at complete odds with each other. One is meant to separate and segregate traffic. The other is designed to broadcast messages across the network, without limit for which devices should get what messages.
BBMDs and VLANs do coexist on IP and MS/TP networks everywhere. We need to know how to properly segregate traffic, while making sure devices get the information they need.
Join our webinar with Robert Lastinger from Distech Controls, where we’ll do a live demo on a BACnet MS/TP network. We’ll share best practices you can apply to your networks today, show you how to configure MS/TP to IP routing, and answer all your burning questions about BBMDs and VLANs.
