Smart Building Transformation: Reaping the Benefits of IoT with Intelligent Infrastructure
Contemporary commercial buildings are undergoing a major transformation. Once simply seen as places to work and live, buildings are now becoming digitally connected spaces where human and technology converge and interact in previously unimaginable ways. The tidal wave of the Internet of Things (IoT) along with a new breed of technologies is paving the way to the smart building transformation. Smart buildings leverage cutting edge IoT innovations to collect data on virtually every aspect of building operation, converting them into business intelligence and unlocking transformational value for property owners, facility managers and building occupants alike.
As the first step towards intelligent, connected buildings, property owners and CRE companies must look beyond traditional civil engineering to architect a robust network and data infrastructure through digital engineering. With the smart building market ceaselessly evolving adapt to changing stakeholders’ needs and larger socio-economic movements, being able to respond to current and future market trends and requirements is a vital requirement. In this context, choosing the right wireless technology is paramount to seamlessly incorporate innovative IoT use cases and smart devices that emerge down the road.
For those looking to start down the smart building path, our latest white paper will help you prepare and position yourself to reap the enormous potential of the transformation ahead. This paper explores the many benefits of smart buildings for stakeholders and outlines the key building blocks of intelligent infrastructure, so you can better navigate the technology landscape and design your own architecture. Furthermore, it walks through ongoing industry trends and applications, including a real-world example of a global commercial real estate (CRE) company embarking on smart building initiatives to deliver enhanced value for its tenants.
