Building performance in clouds and IT environments

Dortmund, November 14th, 2016. – The United Kingdom is a target area for BACnet (ISO 16484-5) application in Europe. The BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) is present at the British building efficiency market on November 17-18 in London to inform visitors about the latest improvements to the globally used communication protocol. BACnet was developed in response to meet a growing need in building automation. At the CIBSE Building Performance Conference the association exhibits BACnet technology and gives an outlook on standardization beyond 2016.

BIG-EU Executive Board member Hans Symanczik from KIEBACK&PETER delivers a speech outlining the 2016 achievements of the BACnet standard. He says: “My favorite highlight is the new RESTful Web Services that will allow building automation systems to be securely connected to other systems and applications.” This will facilitate integration with building management systems (BMS) and BACnet based BMS systems, controllers, actuators and sensors will play a sustainable role in clouds and highly scalable and managed IT environments.

BACnet HVAC controllers, room controllers, software suite for building data acquisition and monitoring and the connectivity of BACnet/IP products are exhibited in the Queen Elisabeth II Conference Centre (QEII), in the heart of Westminster in London. The BACnet expertise is concentrated at booth no. 39. Exhibitors are – besides the European BACnet Association BIG-EU – the French industrial IT provider CODRA, the Canadian BMS suppliers DELTA CONTROLS and DISTECH CONTROLS, and the Italian industrial and building automation provider CARLO GAVAZZI. Further commitments to the BACnet standard are presented by SAUTER, SONTAY, TRIDIUM and TÜV SÜD Industry Service.

Sustainability is one of the major benefits of BACnet. Five years after the London BACnet Forum in 2011 the BIG-EU is once again providing the technical base for increasing property values
