BACnet Secure Connect Interoperability Acceleration Program Launched
Program to help Building Automation System providers adopt BACnet Secure Connect
Atlanta, GA – Dec
10, 2019 – BACnet International has announced the launch of a program
providing building automation system (BAS) suppliers with the knowledge
and skills necessary to incorporate BACnet Secure Connect (BACnet/SC)
in their products and solutions. BACnet International is an industry
association that facilitates the successful use of the BACnet protocol
in building automation and control systems through interoperability
testing, educational programs and promotional activities.
Connect is an addendum to the BACnet protocol recently released by the
ASHRAE BACnet Committee. It is a secure, encrypted datalink layer that
is specifically designed to meet the requirements, policies and
constraints of minimally managed to professionally managed IP
infrastructures. The need for using standardized and often already
present IP network infrastructures for BACnet communication is
increasing, and this security is a critical piece in the networking of
building technologies (Building Internet of Things – BIoT).
From this program, building automation system providers will derive the following benefits:
most BAS manufacturers will have a steep learning curve with BACnet/SC
and will face pressure from the industry to adopt it,” stated Andy
McMillan, president and managing director of BACnet International.
“This program follows BACnet International’s core purpose of supporting
the adoption of the BACnet protocol and assisting the community through
education and testing services to make that process easier. We’re
excited to see the impact BACnet/SC will have on the industry and how
it will accelerate the recognition of BACnet as a secure platform for
Building IoT (BIoT).”
BACnet Secure Connect Interoperability Acceleration Program will be
managed by BACnet International and registration is open now. It is
designed for BACnet product suppliers but is also open to educational
institutions with expertise in the BACnet protocol.
BACnet International corporate members will receive a discounted program rate.
To register, or for more information on the program, contact David Nardone, BACnet International regional operations, at email@example.com.
