Smart Tech Systems Network Infrastructure - Best Practices

Smart building technology leverages building data to save costs and enhance the tenant experience. Gathering the data and sharing between control platforms to create use cases makes these things possible. The challenge up to now has been how to efficiently gather, normalize and analyze that data. This is a challenge for both new and existing buildings. While the new tools of AI and cloud computing are rapidly changing how that’s done, making it easier, cheaper and far more advanced than was possible a short time ago, the elephant in the room is how can this data be shared safely to the cloud? Uploading huge amounts of data and then using it to operate IoT devices for building controls creates cybersecurity risks that require attention. This session will cover best practices in smart network design and cybersecurity.
