AHR Expo 2007SAN DIEGO, CA (December 5, 2006) – Kiyon, Inc., today announced the release of the KAN354B for BACnet WiFi Mesh, the newest edition to the company’s line of wireless building automation BACnet routers designed for demanding indoor commercial and industrial building systems. An innovator in wireless networking, Kiyon is the first company in the industry to develop a wireless mesh network that supports BACnet, a standard protocol for building automation and control systems.

The new KAN354B BACnet WiFi Mesh enables new and retrofitted buildings to be outfitted with state-of-the-art building controls with minimal or no new wiring required. In addition to reducing the cost and labor associated with laying wire, the technology also makes it easier and less expensive for customers to make additions or changes to their systems, or accommodate tenant moves. Utilizing highly reliable, self managing mesh networking technology, building systems such as HVAC, lighting, safety and security, and IT, are easily installed and integrated into the centralized building management system, and field accessible using a standard wireless laptop computer.

KAN354B BACnet WiFi MeshThe KAN354B BACnet WiFi Mesh is the only high bandwidth solution (up to 54Mbps) supporting BACnet MSTP and BACnet IP applications, as well as TCP/IP and HTTP protocols, thus enabling a broader range of building systems and devices to communicate over the same network. Other solutions for wireless building automation only offer narrowband connectivity, significantly limiting the number of devices and applications that those options can accommodate.

“More than 100 customers are using Kiyon’s wireless BACnet routers to reduce construction and retrofitting costs and run building systems more efficiently,” said John Edler, Kiyon Vice President and General Manager. “Our newest product offers the most robust and scalable indoor wireless BACnet solution yet, providing our customers with improved coverage, ease of deployment, increased security and the utmost in flexibility.”

Other features of the KAN345B Mesh Router include:
