IBS27: The Future of the Built Environment- How IoT Platforms will deliver fusion between IT and OT (IBTech)

At the end of this session, participants will see and understand how IoT Platforms facilitate the collision of IT and OT in a building.  With the emergence of building services networks in the industry, there is a growing need to be able to visualise and analyse complete ecosystems in a building which includes servers and switches from a networking perspective as well as connected devices at the edge.  Through technical analysis and visualisation, participants will understand the difference between traditional integration platforms that only bring together OT as opposed to IT and OT in a single interface.

This will enable district level facilities management through a single, centralised command centre that can oversee large clusters of buildings.  As IT and OT continue to collide physically through the emergence of converged networks, there will be an explosion of interest in platforms which can truly connect and command both IT and OT. This will give Building Managers unprecedented insights into the whole building’s ecosystem, including IT and OT in one platform.

The presentation will showcase real-world examples of these new approaches to integration and the customer experiences that the integration facilitates. This includes a technical overview of all infrastructure involved within the ecosystem.

The ability for systems that are traditionally silos to communicate with each other through seamless journeys within facilities such as hotels will revolutionise the way facilities interact with their buildings.  As an example: a commercial tenant approaches their building in their vehicle, a car park recognition system identifies them and opens a boom gate to allow them to enter the carpark.  Their smart device will contain their digital access pass to the building and allow them to begin transitioning through security and lifts without having to use a traditional access pass or fob.  A push notification is then sent to the tenant’s phone from the café asking if they would like their ‘usual’ coffee order to which the tenant replies YES.  The air-conditioning and lighting have been enabled in a zone of the building to which the tenant is assigned a desk and digital way finding assists the tenant to find their way to their hot desk.  When they arrive, their coffee is sitting on their desk.  All of these disparate systems are connected via the IoT Platform and allow information to pass from one another and facilitate this experience for the tenant.
