This webinar will cover the current state of building management systems (BMS), the push to open standards and the emerging IP-based building systems architecture. Building management will benefit from advances in Artificial intelligence (AI) which can not only automate buildings but also to make buildings adaptive, smart, and agile.

As building intelligence mainly depends on information from infrastructure, from the cabling and wireless connectivity that support 24/7 connectivity, we’ll discuss bringing the necessary bandwidth to support a growing number of users and devices. As IoT devices, sensors and more AV systems are deployed in smart buildings to drive intelligence, new demands are being placed on the network infrastructure.

A smart building needs to be able to evolve with the quick pace of technology – without requiring major changes to infrastructure.

Learning Objectives:

1) You’ll learn about the size, scope and categories in the Smart Building market.
2) We’ll explore integrating AV into smart buildings to automate processes and systems-- and allow for the collection and sharing of data to assist in creating even more automation and responsive building systems.
3) You’ll find out about the latest demands on network infrastructure and how technologies are attempting to adapt, creating new competitions as well as solutions.
