Irving, TX—To further emphasize the inevitability of what is considered the most important enabling integration technology, the BuilConn organizers announced today they will host a live XML Pavilion featuring manufacturers demonstrating a wide variety of application possibilities at BuilConn 2004, April 13-16 in Dallas, TX.

The XML Pavilion will feature a cross-section of the buildings industry including security, HVAC, gateway, enterprise and IT solution providers who will demonstrate the extensive potential of XML and Web Services technology. As a technology fully embraced by the IT industry and widely implemented at the enterprise level, XML and Web Services hold much promise in the realm of whole building integration. Without taking the place of existing open protocols, XML and Web Services will enable information exchange between what were once competing standards and provide enhanced capabilities in regards to enterprise connectivity and data mining.

“The XML Pavilion will be the first time this variety of XML and Web Services applications will be viewed, and I believe the pervasiveness of this technology will become overwhelmingly apparent,” Anno Scholten, VP Engineering, eStructures, Inc. and coordinator of the XML Pavilion, said. “It is imperative to understand that the buildings industry is and will continue to endure a significant transformation as it embraces IT technologies. XML and Web Services are fundamental elements of this process.”

Overall, the participants in the Pavilion will provide BuilConn attendees with the first opportunity to get a sense of the possible in regards to XML/Web Services and how this technology will impact the buildings industry as a whole. Live demonstrations will show how the technology is used within manufacturers’ products, as a communication protocol and as an enabling integration technology. Several of the demonstrations will be networked while others will show a standalone application. It is important to note that not all of the products used in the demo at the pavilion are available for sale; the point is for the industry to realize the enormous application potential when XML is used in building systems.

Participants in the XML Pavilion include: Automated Logic Corporation, Belimo Aircontrols, eStructures, Inc., Gridlogix, Inc., Impact Facility Solutions, Trane, Tridium, Inc. and WebGen Systems. The Pavilion is endorsed and supported by industry initiatives including LonMark International, BMA (BACnet Manufacturers Association), CABA (Continental Automated Buildings Association) and oBIX (Open Building Information Xchange).
