Building Managers now have to manage Smarter buildings with more Technology than ever.
A ‘Smart Building’ needs to deliver outstanding user experience to attract and retain occupiers, whilst at the same time providing a safe, comfortable, and flexible environment that delivers on challenging energy and sustainability goals.
To achieve this, there is a need to avoid the creation of data silos across the myriad of Information Technology (IT), Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices and systems that underpin a Smart building or Smart office.
Converged Network System (CNS)
A converged network management system is a centralised solution for managing and monitoring all aspects of a network infrastructure. This includes managing both data and voice networks, as well as monitoring and analysing network performance.
The CNS is the ‘backbone’ of the Smart Building, providing the performance, connectivity and access between systems, assets and devices. Sometimes referred to as the ‘4th Utility’, it connects all systems and services in a building, from lighting, HVAC systems, lifts, fire, and alarms to IT networking systems to create a converged building-wide network infrastructure that can be controlled by a single group
Total IT provide support for the CNS of some of the UK’s smartest buildings. Our managed services means we provide uptime as a service.
We design, implement and manage the core CNS for both new and existing buildings – in both cases the overall objective is to maximise the impact of the multiple IT, OT and IoT systems that contribute to making a building as Smart as possible.
Converged network management system is a powerful tool for managing and monitoring all aspects of a network infrastructure. It offers a centralized solution for identifying and resolving network issues, managing network resources, and reducing costs. With this type of system in place, organizations can ensure that their networks are running at optimal levels and that any issues are addressed quickly and efficiently.
