Exclusive Features in Ethernet Direct Industrial Switches for The Next Generation Smart Building Networks

California, U.S.A., August 2018 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions offers new technologies for the next generation Smart Cities and Smart Building networks.

The new digital technologies enable smart building trends to improve operational efficiency which include Energy Management, Occupant Services, Facility Management and Safety & Security. The trend toward higher integration in building automation in constantly improving and automation is required. Smart building infrastructure connects people, processes, data and things with integrated network solutions. Network availability is a prerequisite to transmit data from sensors toward other devices.

Ethernet Direct offers devices for LAN (Ethernet, Wi-Fi) and WAN (LTE). Modern communication technologies and smart metering enable TIMELY information on the status of the distribution networks. Smart Buildings and the Internet of Things (IoT) is now becoming the conceptual basis for smart building integration. The IoT concept builds on monitoring, telemetry, sensor-based computing, machine-to-machine and IP-based communications.

  • Growth of Smart connected devices in Smart buildings and enabling Internet of things provide better data mining, maintenance, optimization, planning etc.
  • Open architecture, network security and cloud-based analysis with mobile accessibility are now the central principles in Smart buildings
  • Smart buildings need smart data protection
  • Smart building technologies are already a realization; they only need to be connected and synchronized

Ethernet Direct aims to help the building automation specialists to provide their customers with competitive management and automation services in order to provide best-in-class network switches. What is needed is an open building automation platform is interoperability and easy-to-deploy hardware & software solutions.
