Assessment on How Open Communication Standards in BAS Paves Ways to Digitalization and Emerging Technologies

Open communication standards play a significant role in building automation systems (BASs) as it can provide better interoperability and connectivity among devices that are connected, compared to proprietary protocols. These open standards have also made the integration of third-party devices to the BAS network smoother. With an increase in the number of IoT devices, non-traditional building automation communication protocols, such as MQTT, AMQP, LoRaWan, and so on have started emerging in the building automation space. Leading players in the industry are now working toward developing IP-based communication standards that can work alongside the existing communication standards.

Emerging wireless technologies, such as 5G and Wi-Fi-6 are likely to have a greater impact on the connectivity of building technologies and likely to accelerate the growth of IoT devices and applications in the building automation space. Additionally, the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Machine Learning (ML) will see a significant impact in the building automation space as it can bring intelligence to the unstructured data derived from connected devices. In other words, IoT can bolster the growth of AI in building automation space and with that, the industry is anticipated to witness improved operations, efficiency, and lower costs across building platforms in a wide range of application areas starting from facility management, security, and safety management.
