Intelligent Buildings harness technology and link building systems in order to supply more efficiency, higher productivity and increased comfort. The global trend among innovative buildings is toward a comprehensive infrastructure solution that CommScope calls Intelligent Building Infrastructure Solutionsor IBIS.
Most buildings feature between 10 to 46 low voltage systems, each requiring its own control, management and monitoring. Without a common infrastructure that can link them together, these dozens of systems can create a lifetime accumulation of unnecessary cost. But with a single backbone supporting all of these systemsfrom security to lighting, from HVAC to communicationsbuilding operations can become high performing and cost-effective.
With IBIS, all of a buildings systems, from Building Automation Systems and Communications Systems, to video surveillance and access control, are converged over the same, common infrastructure, providing an enhanced level of efficiency and cross-system performance. Intelligent Buildingsand their requisite infrastructuresare quickly becoming the new standard for owners/operators and tenants who want high-performing, easily-managed, efficient spaces.
CommScope offers a range of solutions to meet the unique needs of Intelligent Buildings from copper to fiber optic to coax solutions.
Bright Green Buildings Provide Significant Return on Investment
The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) have released a comprehensive report on bright green buildings. Bright green buildings leverage intelligent technologies to support environmental sustainability while providing a significant return on investment. The report features several real-world examples that show how property companies around the world have employed advances in green building and networking technologies to increase profits, lower costs and help the environment. Several industry leaders including CommScope, Cisco, BAE Systems, and Johnson Controls provided input.
Also part of the project was the completion of a customer testimonial on the King Abdul Aziz Endowment in Saudi Arabia which demonstrated how CommScope and our BusinessPartner BTAT brought a new approach to intelligent building infrastructure design by converging a buildings many systems, from security to lighting onto a common infrastructure backbone.
