Market conditions, including energy regulations, labor and material shortages, cyber-attacks, and of course the recent pandemic, are creating evolving customer needs. Building owners, facility teams, and service providers are now requiring more data, flexibility, secure remote access, and risk management.
While connected buildings can provide these features, the various ways these buildings and their systems communicate can provide differing advantages. For example, wireless BACnet/Zigbee communication with self-healing mesh can provide redundancy and reliability while BACnet/IP communication can provide faster data speeds.
- Identify the various protocols, mediums, and topologies available for building communications.
- Discuss the key considerations for choosing a communication protocol—including BACnet, Modbus, LonTalk and proprietary languages.
- Explore the application factors that would lead you to choose communication mediums, between wired and wireless, and topologies.
- Describe how to mix and match communication mediums, protocols, and topologies for optimal system, design.
