Emerging standards to support Single-Pair Ethernet will have a meaningful impact in the smart building sector. Joining panelists from Analog Devices, Cisco, CommScope and Panduit, ACE IoT outlined how widespread adoption of Single-Pair Ethernet standards will help resolve long-standing challenges acquiring and deriving value from building operations data.
At the 2019 VOLTTRON Days conference, Open Source Strategies’ Si Chen presented the opentaps Smart Energy Application Suite (SEAS), a newly developed open source energy management system designed to help users realize value related to data collected via the Eclipse VOLTTRON platform. Included among the features of the opentaps SEAS software is an open source rules engine that enables users to take advantage of the metadata and network structure of their deployed systems to rapidly tag their data and unlock its full potential.
For those responsible for the cybersecurity of critical networks, a “threat profile” (TP) is an extremely valuable tool. A TP identifies and documents potential vulnerabilities (or “findings”) related to an assessed piece of software. Using a TP, experts can better prioritize, develop and deploy effective approaches to mitigate the identified vulnerabilities. TPs also communicate risk to users by documenting all that has been done to boost cybersecurity. ACE IoT Solutions is pleased to spread the word that the Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) has released a Threat Profile for VOLTTRON, the open source energy data and DERMS platform.
