Smart Buildings

What is it?

A smart building refers to a building that combines different systems, e.g., HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), lighting, alarms, and security, into the united network infrastructure.

Unlike a connected building, where operations technologies are simply connected to an IT network, a smart building frequently employs power over Ethernet (PoE). This lies in providing devices with electric power in addition to data connection over a single twisted-pair Ethernet cable.

How does it work?

The goal of a smart building is to gather utilizable data insights from user devices, sensors, systems, and services. Incorporating this data with the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning improves the building’s ability to meet the user’s and building manager’s needs.

It also allows for the identification and segmentation of devices, research into their behavior, and improvements to issue detection, thus facilitating the network’s security.
