Light + Building Autumn Edition 2022

BACnet® as a secure platform for Building IoT

Experience open and secure communication in building automation at the BACnet booth in Hall 9.0

Aachen, 05.08.2022. – When Light + Building 2022 in Frankfurt am Main opens on October 2, building automation professionals will experience a ground-breaking innovation. BACnet Secure Connect (BACnet/SC) will protect BACnet systems from cyber attacks. This important addition to the BACnet standard (ISO16484-5) is pioneering for all users. At the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) booth in Hall 9.0 Booth E10, solutions related to BACnet/SC will be presented along with many other exciting product innovations.

The BACnet booth is a large information center with numerous interesting exhibitors. Short distances between experts from various fields and first-hand information make a visit worthwhile. In addition to solutions in connection with BACnet/SC, exhibitors will present new automation stations, gateways, sensors and controllers with BACnet interface – all also equipped for future requirements.

Presentation theatre
The "information center" at the BACnet booth also includes a presentation theatre with an extensive lecture program: here, users, suppliers and representatives of the standards present the latest developments and products. The theatre offers first-hand, in-depth insights into the digitalization of building automation. The wide-ranging program - daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. - includes more than 50 short presentations focusing on IT security, energy management and cloud solutions. Other highlights include BACnet Secure Connect, KNX IoT, EnOcean technology and more.

Game changer in building automation
With BACnet® Secure Connect (BACnet/SC), the communication standard presents itself as a secure IoT platform for buildings. BACnet/SC is a game changer in building automation. The addition of a communication layer systematically protects the building infrastructure against attacks. The additional layer is built on proven security standards from the IT sector. As a consensus-based development supported by the entire community, this is a significant step towards holistic cyber security in the building. At the same time, BACnet/SC also opens up new possibilities for connectivity. The presented BACnet solutions are thus increasingly in the focus of building planners. Many manufacturers have already equipped their new products "BACnet/SC ready".

"Networking the BACnet Standard in Europe" – what visitors can expect at the BACnet booth
The BACnet booth at Light + Building in Frankfurt am Main is a meeting place for building planners, installers and operators. Anyone looking for new information on investment-proof automation components for commercial buildings is in the right place in Hall 9.0 at Booth E10.
