Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 12, 2009 -- BACnet International today announced that it has launched a new program that showcases successful BACnet stories and highlights the versatility of the BACnet Protocol in real-world installations.

The showcase, located on the BACnet International Web site, allows anyone to share their BACnet integrations from around the world.

The first entry on the success stories Site features the Duffield Hall building at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. The building is the home of the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility and is the first large-scale BACnet project at Cornell. The installation features BACnet-enabled devices from Automated Logic Corporation. Each success story includes detailed and valuable information about the BACnet installation, including; number of devices and system points, engineering and contractor information, and the names of the BACnet equipment manufacturers involved in the project. Full details of each showcase success story can be found on the BACnet International Web site here: http://www.bacnetinternational.net/success/stories.php

BACnet Success Stories provide a valuable, additional benefit to BACnet International Members by giving them a credible, vendor neutral venue to display premier BACnet integration case studies. Content is peer reviewed prior to publication and case submissions for members of BACnet International are free.

The entirely volunteer BACnet International marketing committee has been working diligently for many months to enable this benefit to its members and Kent Gorrie of Reliable Controls has been the lead technical developer that pulled the pieces together.

I applaud the staff and members of the BACnet International community for making this happen.
