Program: Openness In BAS

Course Description:

What Does an Open BAS Really Mean?

This presentation considers the context, misconceptions, assumptions and use of the word “Open” in reference to Building Automation Systems (BAS).  We will allow the audience to express their perceptions of what open and proprietary systems mean and then work through the history of proprietary and open protocols to test those understandings. We will look at system architecture and protocol development to the trajectory that BAS has taken to get us where we are today.  The goal is that the audience will have a better understanding of BAS systems and the language that describes them, and what to look for from a BAS provider when secure operability and ease of integration are paramount.
